Same thing the one time I saw him. I figured he was well into his club set we read about the next day by the time we gave up and left the arena.

Yeah, by the time we decided to leave, we had waited a while, and he'd already done three encores, iirc. It was also laaaaaaaaate and I had to be to work in about 5 hours, but if I'd known he was coming back out, I'd have stayed.

Edit: so technically it was encore 3, but yeah. We'd waited a long time between each encore. That final one I just didn't see coming.

Springsteen VIII - 2014, tour, album, etc.

Yeah but that was like the least interesting moment of the night. Nothing against Eddie - I quite like him - but I just generally don't give a flying fuck about guest appearances, I don't care who it is. It almost never actually adds anything to a favorite artist's set.

Oh wait, there was that Little Steven show at The Ritz in the 80s where I was in the front row and Springsteen came out. Ok, that was cool.

BUT, Vedder's appearance did get me to pull out my wallet when the bucket came around for the food bank, knowing Pearl Jam would match the donation. (Yay me, bragging publicly about my charitable ways.)

The River is far from the top of the list of favorite Springsteen albums, but holy shit, what a show.

I can't believe he played almost four hours. (I mean, I can believe it, it just always felt like other countries got the marathon shows, and the US got, like, 2.5 hours. That's how my first two Springsteen shows were.)

Probably only because The River is a double album, so if you're playing the whole thing, it's already a full concert on its own!

Had a blast. My feet are so sore today from dancing during the whole encore. I feel like I don't need to go the gym for a week.

Bruce Springsteen, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, and Bob Dylan are my Mt. Rushmore of artists I need to see live before I, or they die.
