Springsteen was responsible - thumbs up, hands down - for the three finest live performances I have ever seen - and I've been a concert goer since 1972.

The sheer power and energy of the guy - combined with a brilliant bunch of musicians - has never been exceeded in my experience.

I hope old age hasn't withered his performance.............. it's certainly affected mine..........

I saw Bruce Springsteen play Roundhay Park,Leeds, 1985. One of the more memorable concerts I've been to ( still got the ticket stub at home ) It was around the time of his 'Born In The USA' album, so he was pretty hot in the charts those days. Approx 80,000 people in Roundhay that day, some estimate it was a whole lot more due to a few thousand gate crashers.

It was a legendary four hour gig by the big man, backed by The E Street Band-so if he's still on form , be prepared for a long day!

Co-incidentally, it was also on the same day that a 17 yr previously unheard of German , won the Wimbledon Mens Singles.
