I remember that no one I knew had any idea who this Springsteen guy was, so after trying in vain to get someone to go with me to the show, I went alone. I walked up to the Fronton box office and bought a ticket for $6 . . . Yeah, $6! And I didn't have to stand in line, just got my ticket and walked right in. . . My seat was down front, row 5 on the isle to the left of center (Danny's side) . . The light went down . . . And stayed down just a little longer than usual. . . Then seemingly outta nowhere a spotlight and there he is sitting on the edge of the stage, harmonica and piano start off Thunder Road. . . " The screen door slams . . . ". It was magic, and it changed my life forever!
I am a lifelong fan and have seen many, certainly my share, of amazing Springsteen shows, with and without the E-Street Band, and am nothing if not grateful to have witnessed them all! But. . . This show, was my first. . . The one that set the standard for all others to come. . . It was like nothing I'd ever seen before or since! I was there! It was revelatory! I TESTIFY!

We stood around and pretty soon someone came and apologized for the equipment. They then lead us down to the front row, centerstage. What a show. Rock and Roll heaven.
