Last night I went to see Bruce Springsteen at the RDS Dublin, something I have always wanted to do. It was well worth it. The Boss really is astonishing live. Along with the E-Street Band they played a set of around 3 and a half hours, remarkable for a 62 year old veteran! Early on he played material from latest album ‘Wrecking Ball’, then fired into the old classics. The encore consisted of six songs, including ‘Born In The USA’ (very rarely played), ‘Born To Run’ and ‘Dancing In The Dark’. They paid tribute to late sax player Clarence Clemons at the end during ‘Tenth Avenue Freeze Out.’ He took the piss out’ve the people who cut their Hyde Park show. He even brought a little girl onstage who sang the words to ‘Waiting On A Sunny Day’, which was a great moment. A phenomenal performance, the second gig is tonight and everyone is in for a treat.
