Show Review: Bruce Springsteen In 2,200 Words

Posted by - 10:08 AM on 03/22/12
Hey everybody, if you look up (no, not at the ceiling, at the top of the homepage!), you'll see a staff content post for today. I wanted to give a snippet out of one of those reviews, a live show review I wrote after watching Bruce Springsteen this Sunday open his Wrecking Ball Tour in Atlanta. I haven't written something like that in a long time - everything just came out fluidly. I felt very strongly about the emotion in the show and I encourage you all to read the blog, and check out Springsteen on tour this year, if you have the means.
From the review“Do I have to say his name?” Springsteen would ask. The crowd would respond, “Clarence!” “Do I have to say his name?!” “Clarence!” The Big Man. Not tonight. Tonight it was, “Are we missing anybody?” followed by the cries of “Clarence!” Over and over and over again. And not just for Clarence – but for the late Phantom Danny Federici as well. And at the end of the first of many tributes, Springsteen said, “All I can guarantee…is that if you’re here…and we’re here…then they’re here.” And all at once it was everybody wanting to yell but everybody wanting to make sure the water in their eyes welling up didn’t turn into tears on their face spilling over. Because that’s what Sunday was – it was a night of moments.

I believe it. Watching a bs&tesb concert on video is a greater experience than seeing most bands in person.

Excuse me? I posted it in the staff content thread and then posted a pull quote. That's customary.

It appears as though most of the people in the comments of the blog would disagree with you.

As far as I know that's our protocol for interviews and show reviews, I didn't know you were on staff. If you were really bothered by this news post and didn't want to read my show review, I find it strange that you took the time to come in here and tell me about it instead of just ignoring it like other news that doesn't interest you.
