Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band were back in Dublin last night and, needless to say, Hot Press was there to catch all the action.
Even by Brooooooce’s exalted standards, it was a killer gig with ‘Promised Land’, ‘Radio Nowhere’, ‘Prove It All Night’, ‘The River’, ‘Thunder Road’, ‘Badlands’, ‘Because The Night’, Born To Run’ and about 20 other classics getting an airing.
Explaining why the missus wasn’t with him, Springsteen said: “Patti’s at home. The cookies have been taken out of the oven. The Guinness is being poured. My favourite clothes are being sold on eBay. No, we’ve got three teenagers, one of whom is graduating.”
There were the usual sterling performances from the rest of the boys, with Sil, sorry, Miami Steve in particularly good form.
If you’re going tonight or on Sunday you’re in for a major treat.
