BRUUUCE! Or: What Dana had to say bout the concert

First off: THE CONCERT WAS AWESOME! I was 20 FEET AWAY FROM BRUCE AND LITTLE STEVEN! and if it wasn't for The World's Tallest Man in front of me, I would have had a better shot of lookin at him, but luckily this nice chap was kind enough to let me stand next to him to see better, but some rude man and his big haired wife weasled their way in front of me, and if that wasn't bad enough, they just STOOD there and didn't seem like they were enjoying the concert. they could have shoved over so the short me could see.

Anyway. Bruce was fantastic. He played the one song I NEEDED to hear ('Badlands'), but I can't remember the rest of the setlist as it was a complete blur. I know he played a lot of stuff from The Rising (of course ) and he played Darlington County and Glory Days and we got them to play one more song at the end, Dancing in the Dark, and I'm not a fan of that song, but golly in concert it was great. And they did a different version of No Surrender which was realllly good. If I could have had half as much energy as he did. Whoo. I couldn't have asked for a better concert and if I had the money, I'd go see him in Tampa tomorrow. And I wish I brought my camera cause I was so close.

BUT Boo to TD Waterhouse...their GA arrangement wasn't so great.

I don't know if these pictures are gonna show up, but here are some pics from Orlando Sentinal's website:

Candy's Room, Human Touch, DETROIT MEDLEY!!!??? Man! Must've been an awesome show. Just imagine what he'll be throwing in by next summer. I was on the floor (not in the pit) in Philly and a whole lot of wankers came pushing and shoving through to go for beers or whatever during "You're Missing." I agree, DITD is so much better live, especially since it was reworked for this tour. Glad you had such a great time.

No...Bruce didn't talk much at the concert, apart from introducing the band...although he called Steven 'Orlando Steve'


Oh and I read in the paper that there were people there who have been to EVERY show! I wanna know how one has the money and time to do such a thing.

I agree.


There were guys who had gone to every single show in Detroit, and we were just in awe. I mean, we saw U2 a lot last year but I dunno....that's a bit excessive.
