SO....I'm going to See him on the 13th in Dallas at the American Airlines center.

Problem...friend that was going with me backed out.

Someone has an extra ticket.

I've traveled all day and am enjoying the Cincinnati skyline from my hotel window (Kroger world HQ anyone?).

The day feels appropriately early spring, appropriately midwest, appropriate for our entourage of four, where three of us will be "losing our Springsteen virginity" so to speak.

Ready, set, go.

Was the Cincy show as bad as I'm hearing?

Or was it just rushed?

How do you feel about Gypsy Biker and Girls in Their Summer Clothes?

Those are the only two tracks that I can't make up my mind on how I feel about them.

Sounds like it was just a little rushed.

Then again, longtime fans accustomed to getting at least 2 and a half hours of a show on this tour would've been disappointed no matter what was played.

But they freakin' got Lost In The Flood, one of my all-time favorites - what a tour debut!

Girls is beautiful, one of the better songs on the album.

I like Gypsy Biker, but I think they screwed up the production on that one. The vocals are too low in the mix at times, and it's a major distraction.

However, it absolutely kills live.

Gypsy Biker's my favorite song on the album.

Girls in the Summer Clothes is a little too Beach Boys for me, a sound I never did like, even when it was done by the actual Beach Boys.

I'm with Martha on this one, Gypsy Biker is one of my favorites (probably 3rd after Last to Die and Radio Nowhere), and Girls in Their Summer Clothes, well its just kind of meh...a bit too slow tempo and bland.

I Gypsy Biker, I think it's my favorite on the album. I view Girls in their Summer Clothes as sort of a guilty pleasure...I feel like I shouldn't like it but I love it

I absolutely love Girls In Their Summer Clothes - but I'm a sucker for that well-done Beach Boys kind of feel/sound.

I had a dream last night that I was at the Bruce concert, but it was in a small theater, and it was barely a quarter full. And like other concert dreams I have, I'm never wearing my contacts in them, so everything is blurry.

Six days!

I feel the same way generally, Gypsy Biker's good, Girls in Their Summer Clothes is meh. I was asking mainly because the Bruce site I've been skimming seems to be full of haters on both those songs

And I agree Phanan they got Lost in the Flood they need to ctfd XD.

Still three more weeks over here

Girls in Their Summer Clothes always makes me happy. Love it.

Gypsy Biker kicks all sorts of ass live.

Damn it I wish I were seeing him again this year.
