Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band; this is a BMC Live Music Review.

Last May, I attended a great fundraiser. During the event, a silent auction took place. Several choices abound, my law of attraction for live music sent me bidding for an August 18th Bruce Springsteen Concert at Gillette Stadium. Without breaking the bank, I won a pair of Tickets to a music experience.

Saturday night arrives. My girlfriend lookin’ hot as always, Limo service on time and great eats at, “Toby Keith’s I love this Bar and Grill”. Our seats for the concert were not just good; they were what I would call, a privilege!

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are the embodiment of what popular live music strives to accomplish. The Wrecking Ball Tour Roared in to Foxborough MA Busting out on stage with high voltage and sustaining that energy throughout the four hour concert. Bruce Springsteen welcomed back repeat concert attendees and introduced him self and the E Street Band to those of us who joined the experience for the first time. He stated on stage that he welcomes new and younger fans because he has another forty years in him to perform. The Boss truly ruled. But he achieves that honor to rule without manipulating the audience. Instead, The Boss employed a relentless driving musical force with the E Street Band, amazing interaction with the audience while rockin’ a non stop spiritual vibe that some of today’s younger R&B or Gospel singers have yet to achieve. It’s no wonder why Bruce Springsteen’s 50,000 strong audiences left the concert up lifted and sanctified!
