really boss news
My buddy Joe emailed me with a list of dates for a tour Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are launching later this summer. The tour will span the US and Europe, with the band playing Conseco Fieldhouse here in Indy on Nov. 10.
A bit of trivia: Springsteen and the E Street Band played the first rock concert at the then-new Conseco Fieldhouse. Unfortunately, the arena was custom-designed as a basketball venue, and proved less than ideal for a rock show. I haven't been to a concert there since (though I saw Springsteen later on that tour at Louisville's Freedom Hall--where I got a poster autographed by E Stree Band members Nils Lofgren, Clarence Clemons and "Miami" Steve Van Zandt--and the sound was excellent), but I understand they've since worked out some of the bugs.
