Daniel writes about 1980-11-20 Chicago: My first and only Bruce show. Completely mindblowing and so memorable. I was 15 and a huge fan, so knew the records pretty well. The opening of Born to Run was unbelievably exciting, I'll never forget it.
And, oh yeah, it was SUPER loud (but crystal clear).

Laid back venue with a good sound system. Stood by soundboard during this show. Drove the music hard and fast. High energy up on stage and from all my neighbors on the hill. What a BUZZ.. Man pheew. Tanglewood was just east of Music Inn. Area is now Condo's. Saw many acts there for few years while at MWCC.
