One month after seeing him induct the E Street Band into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, I was lucky enough to see Bruce Springsteen and company in concert at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT (please forgive the poor picture quality…..I was in the last row and the lighting was fighting me!!!).
Bruce and the band were in their usual exquisite form, performing classics like “The Promised Land”, “Born to Run” and “Dancing in the Dark” to sublime covers of Gary U.S. Bonds’ “Quarter to Three” and the Isley Brothers’ “Shout”. But my favorite moment of the night? A beautiful acoustic version of “Thunder Road” by Bruce, his guitar and his harmonica-with accompanying vocals by the audience. Sublime. Special thanks to the Rhode Island guy sitting next to me for making the night extra fun.
A Springsteen concert is like a family reunion. You get together with people you did not know you were related to, but once you discover you are family, you party. And dance. And sing. To some of the best music ever made!!!
