Bruce Springsteen @ Oakland Coliseum

March 13, 2016

We went to see Bruce Springsteen last night, and what a show that was! I did not expect it to rock the house as hard as it did. Being married to a woman from New Jersey clearly influenced my casual like-that-song approach to ‘the Boss’ into becoming a more erudite appreciation of his lyrics and style. So when she got a pair of tickets from Santa this last xmas, I think she may have been a bit stunned when she realized what it was. (it may have been the way it was wrapped too)

…waiting in the rain == worth it!

Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band is on tour performing a very high-energy a run through of The River (album) which has a lot of well-known tracks as it were, but then it becomes a sort of greatest hits show, I was not disappointed in the least!

I was about to comment of his age and energy, but that just seems pointless. However, the highlight of the show was when he played “Growin’ up”. It was the one we wanted to hear the most. 

Magic @2:30 when he pulled up someone up on stage to sing with him. Tre’s cool!
