The concert started an hour late, and I was getting a little cranky about that.
Soon, all that was forgotten.
If you have ever been to a Bruce Springsteen concert, you have probably seen this phenomenon – the thunder of 20,000 fans singing along in unison, all lights in the stadium on. It is stunning.
The other night, all he had to do is play the first few chords of “Thunder Road”, and the audience sang the entire first verse while he stood there and smiled.
This video below was taken from St. Paul [No I did not travel to St. Paul it is the only decent video I can find of Thunder Road from this tour.]
After the concert, we happened to pass by Nils Lofgren, the guitarist, outside by his limo, signing autographs and taking pictures with people. They were all yelling “Neils” to get his attention. I grabbed a pic. [It is dark but the best I can do with a cell phone at night.]
