Ron Reese writes about 1974-11-22 West Chester: I was there. I was a freshman at WCSU then. Went with a girl from the school paper. I have been a Bruce fan since. I am now 60 and I still remember it. Still in my top 10 of all time and I have seen a lot of bands!!!!!!!
IT ROCKED. Jungle Land with the spotlight shinning through the girl's dress from behind playing Violin still gives me goose bumps!
Patrick Mahoney writes about 1974-10-11 Gaithersburg: Same as most, first time seeing him, had me sold wearing "Chuck' Taylors". I looked at my brother and said "Motherf....er's for real".
Harvey Kojan writes about 1977-02-07 Albany: First Bruce show for me as well. I was lucky enough to be sitting in the front row (my roommate worked for Just A Song, a local record store and a Ticketron outlet, so he was "first in line" when tickets went on sale). When Bruce jumped from the stage to the (raised) orchestra pit and into the crowd, he stood directly in front of me when he did "Spirit In The Night". Incredible.
daniel faure writes about 1988-07-14 Basel: I was at this show, we drove from Le Havre, France overnight, seeing all the fireworks away on the side of the road because it was the night of 14th of July, Bastille Day, then we slept in the car in the stadium parking lot until the gates opened.
I remember the Italian fans, way more intense than us French, the show was unbelievable, the last tour where you felt each show was a triathlon, following the BITUSA tour, it was my 3rd Bruce show after La Courneuve in 85 and Vincennes that same year, I was 24, Bruce has never been so wild since this tour, I feel lucky to have been able to witness these years.
Brian Broekhuizen writes about 1996-09-24 Kalamazoo: I attended this show back in 96. So good. Wondering if anyone out there also attended and still has ticket stubs or any other memorabilia?
Or just memories to share. Bruce wanted this to be a quieter, low key performance, and I remember at one point in the show someone yelled "happy birthday Bruce!" to which Bruce responded, "aw shut the fuck up!" He laughed and we all had a good chuckle. What a guy.
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
