I had bought my first ever record some months earlier, Dancing in The Dark, and having seen the video on To of The Pops, I later went out to buy my first album with my own money - Born in The USA. When i heard that this Springsteen guy was about to visit the UK on his World Tour on the back of his new album, I nagged my mum to get me a ticket and take me to a show.

This concert was earth shatteringly brilliant and from this day on I became a Springsteen fanatic. I have seen numerous shows since and I will always remember fondly the date of 6th July 1985 as the day i began to follow the Springsteen religion.

Long may it continue! Thanks Bruce.

I said surely you mean the arena.When he said NO its the stadium i knew that this fellow would be something special as it wa a complete sell out for the 3 nights.I was only 16 When the first chords of Born In The USA were played i knew that this was the road i would follow musically for the rest of my life. I`ve seen many Bruce shows since and just like a fine wine springsteen is now vintage. rock on Bruce!

Tony wrote: I think this was the one I was at. It was a frying hot day and they were throwing buckets of water off the stage to cool people off.

I was just about close enough to to get the spray and the whole thing turned into a bit of a wet t-shirt contest.

Lots of fun.
