"spanish johnny" wrote: One of the best Bruce shows I've seen. PNC Park is an awesome venue. The entire band seemed to have a ton of energy from the beginning. Bruce was at his best, he did alot of clowning and inter-acting with crowd. It was an all out go for broke show and the crowd was feeding off the music and the band was feeding off the crowd. It seemed that Bruce didn't want the show to end which would explain the extra long version of Dancin in the dark, he just kept it going and no-one was going to leave! But all good things must end at some point, so at around 11:40 it was done.. The only knock on the evening I have was the starting time.. The tickets said 7:30 not 8:25.. I can understand 20 minutes or maybe even 30, but 55 is to long.. He may have been waiting for people to get in, but hey, if they are that late because they want to stay in the parking lot and drink more, screw'em..

Jamie wrote: The show was great. we sat in the back on the third base side and it was loud. My ears were still ringing the next day. It was the best stadium show I have seen (including Born in the USA at Three Rivers stadium in the 80's). Highlights for me were the old songs that you don't her much: Jackson Cage, Streets of Fire, Blinded by the Light. I still wonder how Bruce remembers all the words. Max was especially great. Everyone I spoke with who went to the show loved it. Don't get nervous about the stadiums. Go and enjoy it. You won't be disappointed.
