Springsteen ...

He's 58 and still bringin' it. Tonight wasn't my favorite Bruce concert (of the seven I've been to in the past five years) but it was still a great time.

Then again, I love him enough that I could just go to sing Born to Run with Bruce and the band and the 20-some-thousand other people and then go home. That'd be enough for me.

More tomorrow, when I'm not in danger of face-planting on my desk.

My two favorite concerts of all time: Rush at this incredible outdoor venue in central Washington called the Gorge and Bruce in 1984 at the Tacoma Dome.

This was the "Born in the USA" tour. It was over 3 hours long and it felt like a combination of a rock concert, a church revival and a political convention. Thousands of people yelling and dancing and by the end of it Bruce was still going strong and the audience was drenched in sweat and happily begging for mercy.

Seven shows in five years??

It's signs of addiction like this that lead to interventions, you know... ;)

Funny, J. That's just how I was describing a Bruce/E Street Band show to the woman sitting next to me last night. It was her first. Though Bruce didn't get too political nor was he too revival-y last night. But it was still a really good time.

Chris: I came to Bruce through two fervent fans. Doreen is a Bruce fan but my friend Jeff is a BRUCE FAN. So when he has extra tix for shows in Detroit, I head there and catch shows with him (or go see Bruce on the Vote for Change tour). Though I'm not using his extra tix for this tour. But there's nothing like seeing a show with someone who's a huge fan.

Besides, if Bruce would stay off the road for a bit, I wouldn't go to shows. But the guy can't seem to stop touring.
