Bruce Springsteen hits a home run at Wrigley Field
There was some good things happening at Wrigley Field on September 8th and 9th. Unfortunately, for Cubs fans it was not baseball. For music lovers it was Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. I was lucky enough to attend both shows despite the ridiculous ticketing obstacle course you now have to go through to see popular acts. It is funny how you pay almost a third of the overall cost to a ticketing monopoly that does not even pretend to play a tambourine.
Bruce and the band were joined both nights by Tom Morello and Eddie Vedder. Saturday nights special guest was rain. I have to admit rain has been making a lot of special appearances at concerts lately.
Highlights for me ranged from Out In The Street on Friday to seeing the one two punch of E Street Shuffle and Pay Me My Money Down on Saturday. It was a weekend of great music by a great band.
The pictures are from my seat on Saturday evening that was three rows from the back in the upper deck along the third baseline. These seats were actually closer than my seats on Friday. Should I call this gallery "A View From Way Back"?
