    The Boss at the Bell: Tix on Sale Saturday Noon

    Springsteen is coming to town. Tickets go on sale noon Saturday at: http://www.admission.com/html/evinfo...73881&l=EN&C=#

    I saw this tour in Ottawa last month. The hardest working man in Rock and Roll is still pretty fabulous.

    The Ties That Bind { lyrics **
    Lonesome Day { lyrics **
    Gypsy Biker { lyrics **

    I am on the ticketmaster site and can get 2 GA floor tickets for $115/each, total with service charges is $257. I'm not really a fan of Springsteen so I'm not going to get them but they're available if you're online now!!

    Comes to my home town to see Springsteen but he does not invite his good bossom buddy, not even a phone call to say hello and all this time I thought that I was his second best friend after the plumber, heck I would have even given him the same tour of the city that I gave Judy.

    Actually, I should've called you as you're still in hock to me for $160 thanks to the recent victory of the World Champion Boston Red Sox over the Cleveland Indians. What was I thinking?

    Holy Shit

    The Boss is still okay but he's not what he once was - hardly surprising since he's almost 60 and energy and passion were always a big part of what made him great. Also his audience is getting old so it's not completely surprising that he no longer guarantees a sellout concert.

    You obviously haven't seen the Boss lately. He absolutely kicked butt for 2.5 hours tonight. What a show.

    According to the review in today's online edition of the Gazette, there was a "Clarence Thomas" playing in the band. Gosh, I can hardly wait for the online Gazette's historical view on disgraced American judge "Clarence Clemons".

    Yes folks always look to the Gazette for accurate reporting! Oh and to make matters even worse Jack Todd is back (gaah!!!) with a column that will appear every Monday. It seems good things never last!

    Glad you enjoyed it. I'm sure he was good but was he as good as he was 30 years ago? I'm guessing he wasn't at that level because he doesn't have the same athleticism that he did in his twenties (hey, neither do I!) and I know that while he still does good stuff I prefer his older material.

    YES!

    My Little Devil Date and I got to the Show late (after 9:30)......
    We had GA Tickets.
    I joked with Her about how we had to get Bracelets, to go onto the Floor...the Joke being, "I wonder if the Bracelets will have Diamonds".....
    We then proceeded to get 2 Vodka & Cranberries (YUM!).

    SO cool standing on the Floor, that was the Ice, that the Habs play on.

    I remember hearing:
    The Rising

    Jungleland

    Badlands
    The Crowd singing there WHOA's Out...
    CHORUS
    "Badlands, you gotta live it everyday
    Let the broken hearts stand
    As the price you've gotta pay
    We'll keep pushin' till it's understood
    and these badlands start treating us good"


    Born To Run
    "Someday girl I don't know when
    we're gonna get to that place
    Where we really want to go
    and we'll walk in the sun
    But till then tramps like us
    baby we were born to run"


    Dancing In The Dark
    "You can't start a fire sitting 'round crying over a broken heart
    This gun's for hire
    Even if we're just dancing in the dark
    You can't start a fire worrying about your little world falling apart
    This gun's for hire
    Even if we're just dancing in the dark
    Even if we're just dancing in the dark
    Even if we're just dancing in the dark
    Even if we're just dancing in the dark
    Hey baby"

    Can almost 16,000 fans at Bell Centre be wrong

    No knock on Bruce, but of COURSE they can! In case you haven't noticed, the fans at just about EVERY concert in Montreal come out raving about how it was the greatest they've ever seen. This goes for Bruce and everyone else all the way down to Avril Lavigne, Celine Dion and Justin Freakin' Timberlake. It's called preaching to the converted.

    Hey K, in post 4 you said "I'm not really a fan of Springsteen" but now you feel offended because I didn't say that he has a personal hotline to God. Didn't they teach reading in Special Class?

    I have no problem with Springsteen and I think he's a great entertainer...but because I also think he was even greater 30 years ago, you seem to think "you can't please all the people all the time". What's up with that? Maybe the cause of the problem is that you've been "shaking your head" a little too hard and a little too long?
