Three thus far, Wembley, Coventry and Leeds.

 

I'm still considering HRC, but I'm in the process of putting a deposit and first couple of months' rent down on a place before next year's student finance comes through, so it depends on whether I can get the place I volunteer at to confirm they'll employ me over summer...

Five

 

Padua

Limerick

Cork

Belfast

Leeds

 

Kilkenny will be the first Springsteen concerts on Irish soil that I'll have ever missed. Disappointed to finally lose my 100% attendance record, but they were too soon after the other shows and therefore unaffordable.

Three: Milan, London.... and Geneva.

As far as the last one is concerned, I'll get the stunning experience of going to the venue.... on foot!

Just reading everyone's list for the summer, are all of us stone mad ? I'm behind with my credit card but think nothing on splashing out the following : 5 x Concert tickets
9 x Hotel
9 x food and pints.
Roughly around 2500 in total. No wonder family/friends think I'm nuts.

Just the four this time due to arrival of babybusstop, making a respectable 11 for the Wrecking Ball Tour in all. Wembley, Paris, Cardiff and Leeds. GA all the way in each.

Why - is he terminally ill or unable to play and/or sing?

 

Have I missed something?

He won't retire but odds on next tour will be 2015 solo acoustic so even if ESB re-convene beyond that the days of these current high energy shows may be behind them

If he tours on his own would people still go to multiple shows ?

I haven't really posted here before but I'm so looking forward to this part of the tour I just had to chip in. I've got 10 shows lined up which is the most I've ever done but I've managed to pass it off as part of our silver wedding anniversary celebrations. In 1988 we came back from honeymoon and went straight to a Tunnel of Love show at Villa Park so it seems appropriate. That's my excuse anyway.

 

The shows this year are:

 

Stockholm 1 & 2

Munich

Padua

Wembley

Paris

Cardiff

Leeds

Kilkenny 1 & 2

 

Went to Milan, Manchester, Paris 1 & 2 and Gothenburg 2 last year which were all good choices so hoping for more of the same.

Yes....however tickets would be much mor difficult

to get as a solo tour would most likely be in arenas.

Agreed.....Springsteen will never retire from writing songs and touring, but as you say I doubt we are ever going

to see anything on this scale again.
