#85 Bruce Springsteen @ Dublin RDS Arena (May 31st 2003)

Bruce Springsteen @ Dublin RDS Arena May 31st 2003

Support: N/A

Bruce rarely plays Born in the USA so when he wandered on stage just after 7.30pm on a sunny May's evening in Dublin and started playing the song acoustically....well it didn't quite seem real. Unfortunately Caoimhe had disappeared again to the toilet and so missed this and another couple of songs for that matter. To be fair to her she wasn't alone. I thought most people were aware that Bruce plays until he can't play anymore, hence no support and early start times (He only played 26 songs on this occasion but I really wouldn't put it past him to play 40) but obviously not.

This was my first Bruce gig, and as a result I will never forget it. I have been to many more since and loved them all. I find myself struggling to add anything as he really has to be seen live to understand how good he is. I know people that don't understand why people like him. They are stupid.

Ticket: May 31st 2003

Ticket Price: €65.00
