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 we  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 🙂 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.

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.  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.  most oft he songs were from the River Album  but there was not one song they didnt play, ever a few covers.
