  1. That has got to be one of the weirdest performances of Bruce's career, but they pulled it off really well, I think. I loved "Rose Tattoo". But as great as it was, I hope that won't be how we have to experience live music for too long.
  2. I saw all four shows. The whole week was a very mixed bag for me. I had lost my mother two months earlier and wasn't truly in the mood to travel and see Bruce. But I also felt that if anything could give me a boost to get me back on track and begin the healing process, that would be it. So I went with my best Bruce buddy @GreatDane and did have a great time, despite having my wallet stolen at the hostel we stayed in and getting way too sunburned while spending most of a day relaxing in Hyde Park... and having an anxiety attack in the middle of the first show. I remember very little of the shows themselves. The first one was probably the least impressive of all Bruce shows I have ever seen, which may have had more to do with my state of mind and my abysmal seat 200 miles from the stage right under the ceiling, than the show itself. The second one I don't remember at all. The third one was, I believe, the best of them all, with the "I Wanna Be With You" opener and "Meeting Across the River" into "Jungleland". The last one was good too, but I remember having expected more of a four-night-stand closing show. We spent some of the days standing outside Bruce's hotel and at no point meeting him, but meeting several of the band members, as well as tons of fans from all over Europe, including @Wild Billy. On one of the nights off (where Bruce wasn't playing) I went to see a weird bluegrass show with Steve Earle at some other venue. It was a strange time for me. In retrospect, I don't think I was quite ready for it, but I don't regret going and enjoyed spending time with friends. The city of London I did not care for at all, and if I never go there again, which I haven't so far, I will be fine with that (sorry Londoners... nothing personal, I don't like big cities in general).
  3. I personally think it's all Mikey's fault, but JudgeBrown is worth keeping an eye on too.
  4. The permanent fix wasn't all that permanent, I'm afraid. But now they have applied a permanent permanent fix, so cross your fingers and keep posting.
  5. More problems today. Sorry about that. But the issue should now be permanently resolved, according to our host. Hope they are right.
  6. Sorry about the trouble. Hope it's working better now.
  7. That's not entirely true. It was also played in Horsens, Denmark, in 2016. Those 2016 shows were all officially released. But the 2012 version was much better.
  8. Thank you, all, for your birthday wishes! I have spent the day at home social distancing, as recommended by the powers that be, but I haven't felt lonely at all thanks to all the birthday greetings I have received here, on Facebook, on the phone, and even from my cat Tux who left a big fat mouse for me on the carpet this morning.
  9. I consider this show the best that I have ever seen. I can't wait to listen to it, and at the same time I'm afraid of listening to it for fear that it isn't what I remember. Anyway, if anyone is interested, I wrote this review a few days after the show when my feet had yet to touch the ground after what I'd experienced.
  10. Could the second guy from the right be Curt Ramm?
  11. Well, he just did a little bit:
  12. Happy Birthday, Mikey, whatever high age you've reached!
  13. Better late than never... All entries were put in the hat and a winner of the For You book was finally found. Sorry it took so long. The winner has been contacted directly. I'm not sure if it's someone who is a member of the message board, so I won't post the name here, but it's a fan in Germany who got the answer of the quiz absolutely right: the state Bruce has never played in is Idaho... Shame on him for not playing a show in my wife's home state. Anyway, thank you to everybody who participated, and thank you to Lawrence Kirsch for giving a way a book. Now, he did not ask me to say this, but I can honestly say that the For You book would be a great addition to anybody's Bruce library. Find out more about it here.
  14. Sorry about the delay with finding a winner. It will be another day or two due to some unforeseen problems. So feel free to participate. All responses will be put in the hat even if they didn't meet the March 1 deadline.
