Apparently he's been playing the longest sets of his career on the current tour, and it has been very well recieved by both fans and the music press. Personally I'm not the hugest fan, but enjoy.

My frieds, this was the best Springsteen concert I have seen since 1978. His mix of old and new, his sheer ability to rock all night long kept the ACC swinging and the post 50 crowd remembering the heady 70's and 80's.

No Surrender, Cadillac Ranch, Candy's Room, Born to Run, The Rising, Missing, and Santa Claus is comin to town, were just some of the hi-lites of this amazing experience.

Mishei, you're a Springsteen fan? Hee hee - that's awesome. I wouldn't have guessed.

I'd love to see him in concert sometime. I hear he's quite the showman. I don't have any of his albums, so I've never been a major fan of his, but every time one of his songs comes on the radio, I always sing along. He was quite big with his "Born in the USA" album when I was a teenager.

Oh man. I haven't been a teenager for 11 years. Weird to think about that.

Try 26.

The Boss. New Jersey's pride. Saw him perform in 1976. Think his best stuff was in the 70s. Born to Run, Darkness on the Edge of Town and The River are great alblums. His first three alblums are good too. More jazzy. Less polished.

Also has come a long way in his social consciousness.

Michelle thanks for the review.Josh I would tend to agree that his best rock was produced in the 70's. The anthem like "No Surrender" was a milestone and the fact that my 15 year old daughter listens to Bruce and likes him is a real testamonial to his longevity and musicality.

Still, his most recent work, "The Rising" is a haunting tribute to those killed in 9/11 and a hymn to the heros of this world...ordinary men and women who when place in impossible danger demostrate true human courage.

It was an experience to be at the ACC. The fact that we were all 50+ was neat. Just had to close my eyes, inhale deeply and feel the pungent taste of hashish and grass wafting through the air...ah yessss "No retreat baby no surrender!!!"
