The Boss and the E street Band

so the other day i got a phone call , and the person asked if we (hubby and Me) wanted to go to a concert, she had extra tickets… i hemmed and hawed as i always do.. because i really dont like to be in crowds. well we agreed to go , and then found out this person wanted 300 bucks from us. well ok.. i was a bit disturbed at the beginning… but i got over it. even more so after the show.

of course weย  grew up with Bruce. i remember when the E street band played at all the local colleges.. for 5 bucks , and usually all the tap beer you could drink.

things change ๐Ÿ™‚ but He is still the MAN to see, what a concert!! he seems to truly love the audience. so this is what i got. if i would have known they weren’t going to check purses i certainly would have brought my camera.

after 3 hours of playing he walked into the audience and grabbed signs, they were all songs people wanted to hear. sure enough they played them

so the body next to Bruce… she was holding a sign that it was her65th birthday, Bruce pulled Her up on stage and , still not sure if she knew how to play or not, but they strapped a guitar on her and she did what she did:0 it was pretty awesome

this was towards the end, they all got really close to the mass of people.

The E street Band Played to a sold out crowd, Rochester,NY has a small venue by big city standards.. the Blue cross arena holds 13,000 people.ย  In my years…I’ve sen my share of concerts, and i know everyone usually says the last concert they saw was the best..but this one… this one will stand out in my mind for years to come.

they played from 8:20 till 11:20.ย  most oft he songs were from the River Albumย  but there was not one song they didnt play, ever a few covers.

  1. Sounds like an epic concert. You were so fortunate to see him Kath. I never take my camera to concerts either ’cause I would hate to have to leave it at the door! Fabulous images all the same and why not enjoy the concert rather than lugging the extra weight ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Great post. You’ve captured exactly why we love Bruce, because he’s a true artist. He could have taken the money from “Born In The USA” and become a celebrity. Instead, he stuck around for the long haul and long may he continue!

    • yes Francis every song people were on the their feet hands in the air, i can see how youd think that. and after all the Boss is “sorta” home grown” He made it big over 30 years ago and never forgets His roots. it was a great time

    • Oh Sylvia it was something. I’m petrified of getting lost in crowds . We found our seats and I didn’t move the rest of the night. Hubby had to get the refreshments all by him self. Thanks for stopping by , have a great weekend

  4. I’ve seen Bruce several times here in Finland! He’s awesome. I was even at his longest concert ever, which was 4 hours 6 minutes and this happened right here in Helsinki. ๐Ÿ˜€
