Springsteen Proves Yet Again Why He’s “The Boss” on Sunday
In this 21st century world of live concerts where if you are lucky you may get a headline act to play of 90 minutes (maybe 2 hours on a good night), Jersey’s own Bruce Springsteen puts acts that are more than half his age to shame – playing for nearly 4 hours in concert over the weekend.
“The Boss” has always been known for his live shows, and the marathon concerts he has put on over the years. Sunday became a new level for Springsteen – playing his longest show of his illustrious career with The E Street Band in Madrid on Sunday night.
Hitting the stage around 9:35pm Madrid time, Springsteen went on to play 32 songs that included 2 songs with special guest and good friend Southside Johnny (another Jersey Shore legend) and playing a song for the 1st time live. By the time this so how ended, it was 1:26am and this concert went 3 hours and 48 minutes – the longest show in Bruce’s incredible career.
Stan Goldstein of nj.com, who is a Springsteen expert, reports that the previous longest concert for Springsteen was over 30 years ago – New Year’s Eve of 1980 at Nassau Coliseum.
Think about how much you may sped on concert tickets – you often do not feel you may have gotten your money’s worth. You never hear that complaint with The Boss and The E Street Band, and this night the crown in Spain got more!
