  1. George - waiting for a chip.
  2. That was a great show - one of my favourites (especially as I used to run round the track). RDS reminded me a bit of Crystal Palace - good size venue.
  3. From other thread ...
  4. My standing ticket also says 'Entrance B or C' and 'Queue at South East Ramp' - so I'm assuming that by Sunday morning any numbers will be given out there - assuming there's any left! But just seen pic with notice advising people to queue at J. So that's all clear then!
  5. Some people are on the pitch! They think it's all over but forgot about the solo acoustic number ...
  6. Wasted time in 2013 wandering around the stadium to find where numbers were being given out. As GA tickets say queue at South East Ramp for entrance B or C, I assume it will be somewhere between those two entrances; or is that too obvious?! Any of the wonderful people who make all this work able to comment? Weather looking pretty good for queuing.
  7. Prince talking about Bruce (not sure this has been posted)
  8. Well, just watched this and it's not what I remember. Bruce talks briefly about just three artists: Stones, Clash and Roy Orbison. He doesn't name any tracks but we get videos of Honky Tonk Women, London Calling and Pretty Woman. Rest of prog is film from Reunion show at MSG and a few other videos inc Hungry Heart in the Berlin club. Not much help with this project! PS I'm not that Richard I'm afraid.
  9. You're absolutely right. It was a TOTP2 Special with Steve Wright in 2001 - I'll dig it out and make a list!
  10. You can nominate him on the DID website! If enough people do it they might ask him ... whether he agrees or not is another matter! Perhaps with the book coming out he might feel like opening up a bit?
  11. Guess we can lock in Sam Cooke. But remember he only gets 8 - it's gonna be tough, he might need some help from Steve!
  12. UK Lakers (and maybe others) will know that there's a very long-running (since 1942) radio show on the BBC called Desert Island Discs. Guests choose 8 tracks and talk about the music and their life - they also get to take a book and a luxury item to the mythical desert island. As far as I know Bruce has never appeared but his songs have been chosen by 23 guests, including Tim Robbins, Stephen King, John Malkovich, Tony Blair, Emmylou Harris and Jackie Collins! He's also 16th on the Top 100 artists chosen by listeners, between Van Morrison and Leonard Cohen. Thunder Road is at #58 and Born to Run at #60 in the Top 100 listeners' tracks. http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/features/desert-island-discs/find-a-castaway?q=Bruce+Springsteen&type=all Big names in music have been on the show, including Keith Richards, Roger Waters, Alice Cooper, Annie Lennox and John Cale. Seeing as Bruce will be in the UK again soon, I wonder if he might be invited along? I'd love to hear the tracks he'd choose and what they mean to him. What would he choose? Got to be some British Invasion stuff in there, plus some early blues/folk I should think but also music from his childhood perhaps - what he heard on the radio growing up.
  13. Excellent, thanks!
  14. I imagine Bruce is aware that he's now written a song starting with every letter of the alphabet (I think Queen of the Supermarket was the latest addition) ... except X! Any suggestions for ttiles?
  15. No problem- thank you for the response!
