I haven't been following this thread as closely as I should, but after all the up and downs in recent weeks for me (health-wise), I'm delighted to say that I WILL be able to go and see Bruce on Monday in Germany. Have an early flight from Vienna on Monday morning. It's the day of the EURO game Germany vs. Austria, so that should be interesting. I am not really up to date about what has been played in recent shows, I'm just looking forward to a great concert.

If there is anything to the rumor about health problems, my first thought was Clarence. He's moving pretty slow these days.

After thinking about it, the health reasons are probably just from the wear and tear of being on the road. They will have been on the road for almost a year by August's end, I know even Bruce was having issues with his back on the Seeger Sessions tour and that wasn't nearly as many shows. Just seeing health as a reason rather scared me last night. Heck it takes me a day or so to recover from just one GA show

The owner of Backstreets posted this morning:
EASY COME, EASY GO...
Remember that tentative fall leg that was in the works a couple weeks ago? It's no longer in the works. Several sources have confirmed that the plan has now been scrapped. We're looking at a good chance for more dates to be added in August, but right now it appears the August 30 show in Milwaukee stands as the final performance of the Magic tour.


So we can still speculate where the extra shows in August might be

I didn't want to say it, but that's where my thoughts led as well. He still seemed pretty energetic emotionally, but yeah, he was moving quite slow. And he's older then the rest of the band isn't he?

Just back from the Springsteen show in Germany, powerful and energetic, great concert, despite the competition of soccer (Germany-Austria, important game) and technical difficulties: Powet outage during first song - Jackson Cage - and during second song - Radio Nowhere, monitors and sound were out, while they were trying to fix it, Bruce went into the audience and collected banners and song requests. The rest of the show was fine, no more substantial technical hiccups. Show wasn't sold out, probably because of the soccer game. The long daylight took away a little from the atmosphere which became really good during the last third of the show. Much interaction with the audience, Bruce in great mood, talking German etc.

I love this site:

Springsteen Lyric Shirts : springsteentrac : CafePress.com

I'm torn between the Cadillac Ranch, Rosalita and The Promised Land shirts. Or the Born to Run shirt. Or maybe the Thunder Road one.

Oh, decisions, decisions ....

I love the Born to Run one, but I wish it had something other than the guitar on it.

I like the ones with the little Springsteen silhouette.

When I'd visited the site before, I thought there was a feature where you could mix n match the lyrics and the style - like put the silhouette on your favorite quote instead of a guitar. Or a Cadillac.

Maybe that's just for certain items. Or maybe I'm crazy and that wasn't an option at all.

Perhaps you were thinking of this?
