Epic E Street

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band went insane at Citizen’s Bank Park in Philly over Labor Day weekend (the first of two shows). I was bummed that there was a lack of ‘No Surrender’ and ‘American Land’, but it was a fantastic 33-song, 3-hour-and-40-minute party to end the summer. I’ve never imagined that ‘Working on the Highway’ could sound so ridiculously good. And ‘Badlands’ and ‘Shackled and Drawn’ – holy shit! ‘Rosalita’ even came out. Unfortunately, I missed most of ‘Thunder Road’ after a gentleman next to us passed out and had to be carried to safety by me and other fellow concertgoers.

And to think – just a few minutes away at the same exact time on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway – Pearl Jam was playing ’99 Problems’ with Jay-Z at the ‘Made in America’ festival. Philadelphia is the now officially the music capital of the world. The setlist:

Summertime Blues
Out in the Street
Sherry Darling
Hungry Heart
We Take Care of Our Own

Death to My Hometown
Lost in the Flood
My City of Ruins
