Le Weekend

As expected, The Boss was boss.
On stage for 3 hours and 20 minutes WITHOUT a break.
This is what I wore underneath my waterproofs - (although hopefully I got rid of The Psycho expression on my face by the time we got there).

.

Sixty two years old and he still moves around the stage with as much energy as when I first saw him in the summer of 1988.
My husband introduced me to Bruce when we started going out with each other in 1986.
He had been introduced to The Boss by his older brother in the late 1970s.



Last night there was a wonderful moment when Bruce pulled a young boy - about 12 - onto the stage and let him sing a chorus from Waitin' On A Sunny Day.
The average age of the audience last night must have been around 50 but it was great to see lots of younger kids, teenagers and many in their early 20s too.
I think my days of hoping to be pulled on the stage for Dancing In The Dark are long gone.
Yesterday evening he got not one, but two girls onto the stage for that song during the encore.
Although I wasn't looking forward to the rain last night it did stop when Bruce took to the stage and I am certainly glad I went.
I have been to see Bruce six times and this was, by far, the best concert I have been to.
If you ever get the chance to go and see him live - please go, you won't regret it.

I wore: Boots - Clarks (swapped to wellies later)
Leggings - Tesco
T-Shirt - H and M
Denim Shirt - Barcelona shop

  5. Sounds like you truly had a great time. Nothing bears a live concert even a little rain can't dampen a great one.

  6. In my mind, Bruce is one performer that transcends age...as he speaks to the working class in all of us. sounds like a great concert. I've never seen him live.
