When they built you brother, they broke the mold.

I too experienced joy at both of the Springsteen shows Sunday and Monday at the Garden. The E Street band wrapped up the first leg of the “Magic” tour. They will embark on a European tour after the holiday and then come back to the States in January. My sisters, Dad, and I enjoyed “No Surrender” and “Jungleland” especially on Sunday, and I was pretty fired up about the throwbacks on Monday – “E Street Shuffle”, “Kitty’s Back”, and “4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy).” “Born To Run” and “The Rising” still resonate, and “Reason to Believe” is done in a rockin rowsing way. Off the new album, the crowd caught onto the sweet summer song “Girls in their Summer Clothes” and nodded along solemnly to “The Last to Die.” Although Peter Wolf joined the stage for “10th Avenue Freeze Out” and Bruce gave a shout out to “the home of the World Champions”…no “Dirty Water” was done…But it wasn’t missed! The crowd was kept plenty busy with the high energy encore, which included “Badlands” and closed out with the jig “American Land.”Thanks Boss.Dad, me, Meg(and my floppy hat) getting ready for the show Sunday :Clearly happy to see the Boss!
