The Boss July 11th

Anyone heading to this? Looking forward to it myself, he puts on some show, you get your moneys worth anyway.
Flannerys Coppers afterwards for the first time in about a year, nice one. :rolleyes: :smiley: :smiley:

Haven’t made the call on this one yet. Would love to get to the gig in Bilbao on the 26th at the Catedral, now that would be the business.

Fuck off back to wal-mart Bruce you Cunt/former man of the people .Fuckin Traitor

Bruce is a hero, legend, god.

I’ll be there.

Springsteen’s a sell out plain and simple. I can’t stand the cop hating cunt.:wink:

I never got him I must say. His music never did anything for me.

:eek:

See him live farmer, just once.

Not really much point when I don’t like his music.

:wink:

I have a ticket but haven’t decided if I’ll go.

If its pissing down, I’ll definitely be blanking it

Best live act I have ever seen. No question.

Even if you are not that gone on him - he is worth checking out live.

What’s his link with Wal Mart?

As you were on at 2am I may be waiting a while for this reply.

He’s good live, alot of energy. Only problem is that his back catalogue is so big that there will allways be a few songs that you mightnt have heard of.

Best band ive seen live, toss up between Prodigy and Arcade Fire, both were amazing!

No one puts on a show like the Boss, its astonishing the energy he has.

This weekend is Boss Time…

Heard a lot about Arcade Fire as a live act, and thought/think Funeral is an utterly fantastic album, but was disappointed frankly when I saw them in Phoenix Park last year.

REM in Ardgillan Castle, Pixies in Phoenix Park and The Pogues in RDS Christmas 2007 are my three favourite gigs.

The man has always been seen as a champion of the working man etc , only to turn around & get into bed with walmart . Shame on you Bruce…

Yeah that Arcade Fire gig in the Phoenix Park wasn’t great. I saw them at Glastonbury 2007 and in the Olympia and they were excellent. Their bext ever though was Electric Picnic in 2005. Crazy fooking gig.

For overall enjoyment the Boss last year in the RDS is my number 1 with Arcade Fire in EP a very close second

I remember reading an interview with Springsteen in Rolling Stone in September 2002 (I think) and he was talking about September 11th and how he didn’t want to record for a while until one day he was in his garden and some guy was walking past and shouted to him “Come on Bruce, America needs you” so he went into the studio the next day or something.

Horribly cringey.

It was some fucking album that he came out with though, irregardless of the cringeworthy nature of it. The Rising is a belter of an album.

Springsteen is very over rated in my opinion… 2 or 3 great tracks but all the energy and jumping around stage cant mask the mediocracy of most of his work… The river is a cracking tune tho.
