Bruce Springsteen has turned 60 but you would never know it from his performance Monday night at the Verizon Center in DC. Some of my observations:
The Boss weaved his way through his career Monday , accentuating the playing of his entire Born To Run album.. Jungleland was awesome.
Reds (wife Patty Scalfia) was not with the band Monday night. I guess rumors of the split have some substance.
The scalpers were just plain stuck with tickets due to a rumored Springsteen policy of releasing hundreds of seats the day of the concert.
Include in the Boss’ encore was a great rendition of Higher and Higher, a classic soul song from Jackie Wilson as well as Classic Springsteen song Rosalita.
If you haven’t ever seen Springsteen live, follow my advice and get to the next one. It’s as uplifting as a musical event can be. Nobody left early from the Boss’ concert.
The real event of the tour occurs Fri Nov 20 at the First Mariner Arena, Springsteens first concert in Baltimore in over 30 years. I am sure he will dream up something special for event.
