Yep-- camera phone concert pics suck...but these are all I have from tonight's Bruce Springsteen concert.
First of all, The Boss is fine as hell. I'd like to see him nekkid. Yeah, I know he is old enough to be my dad....but still... that man has it going on.
Second, his voice is still amazing. Other concerts I have been to lately (like Motley Crue) sounded like crap because they have aged hard, but not Bruce.
Third, his set is simple. No pyrotechnics. No stage design. No background screens-- nothing but the band. The most elaborate thing on the stage is the fancy chair for Clarence to sit in. That dude was standing up on sheer will, vicodin and maybe some weed. He could barely shake the tambourine. He had a surrogate sax player for 90% of the time. But the crowd still loves him!
Lastly, this was probably one of the better concerts I have ever attended. And not *just* because the tickets were free, we were in the luxury box, and the parking was free.... But because the crowd was fun, no one was rude or gross, the crowds were laughing and not shoving--everyone was having a blast. It was probably the most civil event I have ever attended at the Greensboro Coliseum.
Oh and that is me and Dee in the picture collage. I guess we should have asked someone else to take our picture, or tried earlier in the evening or whatever-- but we decided this was the BEST picture EVER of us-- so we kept it.
