Carolyn Harrison writes about 1974-07-27 Phoenix: My husband and I saw Bruce for the first time ever at this show. I had to beg my husband to go as he had never heard of him. Bruce came out in a white tank top - wow. He started the set out with "Spanish Johnny". From there on it was hard hitting rock n roll. After the second song, my husband turned to me and shouted, "This guy's great!!" This comment was coming from someone I had to drag to the concert. I LOVE this memory. We are both solid Bruce fans to this day.
Doug Ellenberger writes about 1977-02-25 Lafayette: Attended the show at Purdue in '77 with college buddies from Valparaiso. We drove down and were able to see a fabulous show. Bruce and the band were at their peak. I have seen a lot of great rock and roll...before and after.....and this was the one I still have at the top of my list. Great music, great friends. The audience was on their feet the whole show....a fitting tribute to the best band in rock at that moment.

JoAnne writes about 1980-12-18 New York: My first Bruce springsteen concert! I was in awe ... I had NEVER seen anything close to the performance given that night. We were pretty far from the stage but his energy wasn't lost on us! Jumping on speakers, the piano, flying all around the stage for THREE HOURS! ... this was the performance to which all other artists concerts were measured! Need I say more?! Changed my life ... thank you Bruce!

Two shows, same city, same venue, 25 years apart. One was my first, the other was my 59th. There have been other shows in between at the same place, but 25 years is a good occasion to pause and loo ... Read more
Which was the bigger surprise is hard to say, but yesterday two announcements were made that were both rather unexpected. One was that Bruce has added a final show for 2012 in Mexico City, and the ... Read more
