It was great!!


Last night Hubs and I finally got to see Bruce and the E Street Band. It was a wonderful show. 3 hours non-stop. The energy was incredible..the music second to none. They opened the show with a beautiful and fitting tribute to the Late Danny Federici, a video shown while Bruce was singing Blood Brothers...then they went right into the rest of the show:

That's cool, you finally got to see him. It's been about three years since I caught him here in Portland. Looks like he did another nice long show. Did he come out anywhere close to on time? i remember him being rediculusly late when I saw him.

Jeff,

the concert was schedueled for 7:30..but I figured they'd be late. They started at 8:30 which wasn't too bad seeing that we all had to get patted down before entering the arena..what a scene. Apparently there was a bomb threat at a recent Bon Jovi concert...anyway...yes they played 3 hours non stop...amazing!

HUGS!!
