Springsteen plays Two Nights at Madison Square Garden


We were lucky to get tickets for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band's SOLD OUT show at Madison Square Garden Monday April 9 and sat on Steve Van Zandt's side of the stage. While waiting for the show to begin we saw NJ Governor Chris Christie escorted to his seat, then New York Jets Quarterback Tim Tebow get shown his seat, our seats were only slightly behind these two celebs.

The epic show lasted close to three (3) hours and saw the oldies we all look for like: 'Out In the Street', 'Spirit in the Night', 'Because the Night', 'Backstreets', and 'Rosalita'. I'm a little bummed that the likes of  'Candy's Room' and 'Ties That Bind' got bounced for 'Thundercrack' but I guess Bruce felt he played 'Thundercrack' in Boston, he should play it in NYC.
