not a bad seat in the park

Fantastic rock n' roll show!!! My husband said, "Bruce is not my favorite, but I have to admit that was THE GREATEST ROCK N' ROLL SHOW I've seen yet!" He did not include U2's Inside Zoo TV in that collection (not really comparable).

Fenway Park is an awesome place for a rock concert. We sat up in the left field grandstand section 31 and had a great view of the whole park...the neatly lined seats throughout the entire outfield...the place was loud!!! Definitely a better venue than my previous show at Giants Stadium in July. You got an intimate feeling despite being with 35,000.

Bruce was very into the fact he was in the soul of the city as he encouraged the crowd to join him in an "exorcism" brought on by the "greedy bastards from New *********, ummmmm Pennsylvania." Like a true rock n' roll minister, he claimed to feel our pain (Red Sox fans) and acknowledged our great suffering.

An absolutely great show. We saw him fly out of the park after the show in his dark long SUV, his wet head poking out of the sunroof, waving to all the fans outside the clubs.

As for seeing U2 at Fenway Park in 2004, that would be like dying and going to heaven...oh, that and the Red Sox winning the World Series, too!!

Little details like "BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN" on the old time scoreboard were incredible. I read the day after that the groundskeeper had inscribed "B R U C E" in the outfield under the plastic corrugated. The park looked absolutely fantastic!!!

And as for Fenway the hot rumors for 2004 are Jimmy Buffet and The Eagles.
