Also had a chat with charlie plot kin ,who said he had flown in to sort out the sound for earls court shows. Real nice goy. Funny when Edwin walked on.

Dave Haden wrote: This was the first time that I ever experianced the magic that is Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band live. When Bruce came on stage, he owned the NEC. From start to finish, he had the crowd in the palm of his hand. He surprised the audience with a guest appearence by the late Edwin Starr and when the opening of Born to Run was played, the lights in the arena came up and over 13,000 people jumped to their feet and sang and danced to the music of The Boss. The show finished with a song I had never heared before called Land of Hope and Dreams, but it has since become a firm favourite of mine. Since then, I have seen the man live , 9 times and don't plan to stop yet, but that first time will always be my favourite live show of all time.
