I expect that is true

the arena shows I saw in the 90s, left feeling sad for how far they had fallen from the small venue shows when I first saw him and the E Street Band.
The first time I saw them, they only had 3 LPs, Born to Run, - The Wild, the Innocent and the E Street Shuffle, - Greetings From Asbury Park. They played 3+ hours back then. Those albums plus Darkness on the Edge of Town are in my opinion his best.

I have some great pictures up in my attic, I should dig them out.

yeah, just looking at his albums, I really only like the first 4 or 5 a whole lot, I have all those on vinyl and played them hundreds of times. The digital music does suck the very soul and pleasure out music, Neil Young is right.
I probably caught 25-30 live shows between 76 and 83, those big outdoor shows just killed it for me, plus he became the thing he despised, commercial.

perhaps he saves his best shows for the east coast and special occasions now... but every bruce show i've ever been to, and i only started going on the rising tour, have been over 3 hours, with the exception of one show at MSG on the magic tour, which clocked in at around 2:45.

and the majority of the shows i've seen him do have been in stadiums

One of the best Bruce shows I ever saw, in 32 years of Bruce shows, was the small one at the Pantages.

Maybe that wasn't commercial enough to dismiss.


Nostalgia can be its own reward, I guess.

Are you for real? Any performer would love to age like The Boss has. He was in fine form last night during his performance.

i've seen him 4 times.

3 of those 4 times i'd agree with you. he'd clock in on average between 2:30 and 2:45.

i saw him in Baltimore on 11/20/09, he played for 3hrs22min.

Thanks so much or all your messages and tweets about the GRAMMYs. I can now reveal that I was asked to perform a Clarence Clemmons tribute and then it got dropped to accommodate the tribute to Whitney Houston.


they couldn't ditch one of the chris brown performances to keep the Big Man tribute in?

Are you like you were in the 70's or early 80's? I didn't see him then so I don't know..but as a live performer he kicks butt and for me there's just no one like him. Not even U2.

Rumor is he might be playing Fenway August 11th

At least Clarence got the penultimate spot in the Montage O' Death.
