That’s just what Bruce did in Austin. 


Sunday night was my fourth time to witness the heart-stopping, pants-dropping, Earth-quaking, booty-shaking, history-making E Street Band.  And let me just say, the show only gets better. 

For my Dad’s “50th” birthday, I gave him a ticket to go with me to the show.  My Mom and Dan also came along… I don’t think Dan knew what he was in for.  Bruce started off the show at 8:15 and didn’t stop rockin’ until 11:15.  THREE HOURS!!  Definitely the longest of any of his shows I’ve seen.  I think he was digging the crowd, because we got more songs than the prior cities, and songs that weren’t on his original set list for the night.

*Spontaneous requests Bruce took from the audience.  One of them was on a bubblegum wrapper.  Tight.

Thanks to the prayers from Bible Study, we had amazing seats.  I only wish our section could have been a little more animated.  I don’t think the guy to my left moved once the entire time.  Which of course makes me feel awkward when I can’t keep still.  I’ve either got to stand and clap, or sit down and tap my feet, all the while singing every word.  Cause that’s just how I roll.


If Bruce does add another U.S. leg to his tour and comes to Dallas, I’ll be there.  And I really want to get General Admission tickets to stand in the Pit.  I feel like that’s one thing I definitely need to experience in my lifetime.  It probably would feel like a little slice of Heaven.

The only bummer is that we got Glory Days instead of Dancing in the Dark.  But, I’m pretty sure that getting Prove It All Night, Jungleland and Born to Run made up for it just fine. 

Oh and don’t worry.  I got my $45 t-shirt.
