springsteen

Has anyone seen him on his most recent tour - does he have an opening act, or does it start right on time? I'm thinking of going...

Can anyone help?

Thanks

No opening act, show starts when everyone is in their seats, first late seating isn't until after the 3rd song. It's a very grown-up affair. An incredible show, GO, and be on time and sit still and be quiet (his terms).

Thanks! Do you think it's cool to go by yourself - I'm tempted. What are your thoughts?

I went by myself and it was more than cool. You can often get a better seat that way, too (shhh, don't tell, it's my get-a-good-seat secret). And I ran into two people I'd met at previous U2 shows in different states. I often go to shows alone, though, and am very comfortable with it.

As usual, what she said.


I'll add: GO! It was one of the best concerts I've ever been to.

I saw Springsteen by myself in May (picked up a ticket day of show) and it was FANTASTIC. This tour is incredible. I love the intimate setting and this is Bruce at his absolute best.

Re: going alone, I don't often go to shows by myself, but for this show I made an exemption and it was terrific, sat near two longtime Springsteen fans (and lesser U2 fans) and everyone had a lot of fun.

So, I got a ticket - a floor ticket! Row A on Ticketmaster.

Problem is I can't arrive until 10 minutes before it starts I'm a little worried about that. I mean I don't think it's a GA system like U2, because I have a seat number and a section. But I am just worried that if it says its starts at 7:30, then it will DEFITELY start at 7:30.

I hope I don't miss anything...

VERY Excited though VERY!!

Thanks.

Yay! I don't think it will start promptly at 7:30 (the show I saw started late but not all that late--I had planned to arrive halfway through the opening act, not knowing there wasn't one, and got there just in the knick of time) but just make sure you know where you're going and have all the parking details and stuff worked out in advance. Good luck!

Don't worry about the time. 7:30 ticket = 8:15 start in Chicago. Won't start until at least 8:00pm.

Ok. Talk me out of going to Barnes and Noble right now.





Confession: For a long time I had the lp cover of Darkness tacked up to my bedroom wall when I was younger.

I was still recovering from my foot surgery. I got a little overexcited during the show and jumped up ever so slightly.

I only did that once.
