I read on Billboard.biz that organizers say that $32 million and counting has been raised and donated for the Robin Hood Relief Fund, which is amazing.

Doors have opened at Madison Square Garden. Nearly 30 minutes until The Boss opens the show.

The Boss kicks off with Land of Hope and Dreams. That intro video was very touching.

Those are the people that forked out $2,500 for those seats. I think I have new appreciation for 'Wrecking Ball' now.

All the more reason.

He always look hot at the beginning of a show. And by the end he just looks, um, hot.

He's already sweating ridiculously.

So the movie theater option: great viewing, horrible sound.

Born To Run - with Jon Bon Jovi. I think this might lead to Bon Jovi's set?

Wow Wrecking Ball is a great song. Never heard it before.

Some song performance predictions:

Bon Jovi - Who says you cant go home.
Alicia Keys- Empire state of mind
Billy Joel - NY State of mind
Kanye West- Stronger
Rolling Stones - Gimme Shelter with Alicia Keys (or Lady Gaga)
Paul McCartney - Let It Be.

Would be cool if Paul did "Happy Xmas (War is Over)"

Couldn't figure out why Bruce was already so sweaty with the first song. Maybe he lifted weights or something before he came on.

Could have lived without JBJ singing Born To Run-but who cares, it's for a great cause.I think some of the people on the floor might be Sandy victims, so I think they can be forgiven if that's the case.

One time when I went to see Bruce in Cleveland I passed Baba Booey on the street.

He looked at me like he was expecting me to recognize him or something. Which I did of course but I didn't want him to think so.
