So, I just got back from seeing my first ever Springsteen show in Dublin, and I just can’t say enough about the guy. He was awesome. At 62, he rocked the house, was such an unbelievable professional and left us not feeling like kooks that we had put him on our bucket list (check!).
He started pretty much right around 7:30 with an acoustic This Hard Land…he wandered out on the stage and just played. I think the thing I took away from the show was that he loves it. You are seeing an artist who truly loves what he does and gives the audience everything he can. The band took a break (he never did) and he played the piano (The Promise). Never stopped running around. His voice sounds awesome.
He is such a staple of my youth and it was a great experience to see him – honeslty, I was happy we were going but had no idea that he would be that fucking good. From the time he started playing, I didn’t want it to end. I highly recommend it, if you’re a fan.
