Apparently, he played Twist And Shout twice! Yep, they played the song, finished it, went to the front of the stage waving goodbye and the crowd was so enthousiastic they picked up their instruments again and played for another few minutes!

The second night in Rotterdam was excellent, but I wouldn't have mind to be in Gothenburg yesterday. On the other hand, I probably wouldn't have been able to be in Utrecht the day before, where REM was playing in a small club (600-800 people). You have to make some choices.

But it's great that Bruce is back to his marathon concerts. And this time there is no intermission to catch a breath...

C ya!

Marty

Springsteen to play Fenway Park

i didn't know wether to post this in Just the Bang and the Clatter, or in Keep 'em Under Pressure, seeing as it's a significant music and sports story... so i put 'em in both.

It won't end the curse of the Bambino. But it's a decent alternative.

For the first time in its 91-year history, Fenway Park will play host to a major rock concert when Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band perform on Sept. 6.

Springsteen announced his concert dates on Monday, and Fenway is one of four baseball parks that Springsteen will play during a series of concerts in August and September.

The other baseball venues are: Comiskey Park in Chicago (Aug. 13); Comerica Park in Detroit (Sept. 21); and Miller Park in Milwaukee (Sept. 27).

The Red Sox will not be too far away when Springsteen shows up in Boston. The club has a three-game series that weekend in New York at Yankee Stadium.

Sept. 6 will not be the first time Fenway has hosted a musical group. Rock group Smashmouth performed there during All-Star Week festivities in 1999. The park also hosted a Christian musical ceremony during the Catholic Church Jubilee in 2000.

Obviously, neither of those acts are on the same magnitude as Springsteen. But current Red Sox owners John Henry and Tom Werner are trying to extend Fenway's use beyond baseball and to the community. They sought the city's permission to use Fenway as a venue for Springsteen, and received the go-ahead on Monday after the Office of Consumer Affairs and Licensing gauged public interest.

Don't expect, however, to see Fenway hosting concerts every time the Red Sox are away. Some residents who live near the venerable stadium worry about the noise factor a rock concert would generate.

"I don't think Fenway Park would be an appropriate venue for a regular concert series. The noise would just be overwhelming,'' Bill Richardson, president of the Fenway Civic Association, told the Boston Globe prior to Monday's announcement. ''But if (Springsteen) did show up, I'd be sitting on my roof deck listening in. It would be something.''

Springsteen is not unfamiliar with baseball, having thrown a few pitches during his video, "Glory Days."

In addition, members of his tour group have formed a softball team called the E Street Kings.

Even his performances can draw baseball analogies. A review by the Detroit News on a Springsteen concert on HBO said, "Every single song slams home like a baseball bat to the chest."

Springsteen will also play at Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill, N.C. (Sept. 14) and Ralph J. Wilson Stadium in Buffalo (Sept. 20).

The six concerts extends Springsteen's current tour that started on Aug. 7 and has sold more than three million tickets. Additional stadium dates will be announced in July.

I'm looking forward to two Bruce dates (my first time), this Thurs. in Giants Stadium and the Fenway Park show. It will definitely be odd to be in Fenway without a pitcher on the mound.

Winterland Night is the one Bruce boot I'd strongly reccommend.

I wish Ticketmaster would put up the Comerica Park info already.

Detroit goes on sale Aug 8th or 9th (cant remember exactly). Parking and traffic will be a nightmare as there is a Lions game at Ford Field accross the street the afternoon of the show. Not very good planning by the Boss's tour management.
