Got a great phone call this morning

Post by BrianT » Fri Oct 19, 2012 2:27 pm

A buddy of mine, who owns a bar in downtown Ottawa called me this morning
and asked me if I wanted to go to the sold out Bruce Springsteen show tonight.
I said yes in a flash.

It looks like Molson gave him 16 tickets for a box in the 100 section for tonights show.
He told me it would cost me around $100.00 for the limo to the show, all the beer and wine and some food. (the ticket is free)
I said no big deal.

Looks like the limo is picking us up at the bar at 5:30 and then of to the show, looking forward to a great evening with "The Boss"

Sounds great. Have a wonderful time Brian.

Personally, I'm waiting with bated breath (or some kind of breath) for Brian's report. Kinda hoping he comes back with a good report like maybe that Springsteen has hired a new lead singer or something. His band's not bad. Not bad at all!

Hope you had good time, even if you can't bring that good of news Brian!!
I was there "At the Fest!" Hope you were too!

Got home at 2:30am.
Did not feel good on Saturday. This is what happens when you spend 5hrs in a private box at a show
that is rented by a beer company. Beers flowing all night I felt pretty good. I think the 2 bottles of red did it back at the bar.

Anyhow, I really did enjoy the concert. For a guy who is 63 he can still move. He was on stage for 3hrs 20 mins and he took a 10min break in that time.
He played a lot of stuff from his latest album, The Wrecking Ball that I am not over familiar with, but it sounded like the rest of the audience was.
When he played the old standby's the crowd went wild.
The group was good, but the sax player Jake Clemons (nephew of Clarence) really had big shoes to step into did a fare job but was not Clarence Clemons
Bruces voice sounded real good he energy was astounding in all a very good show.

They are 2 different kind of shows. Waters definitely has the best visuals and over all sound. Bruce was more interactive
had the audience eating out of his hand, especially when he fell backwards and let the crowed carry him around for 3/4 mins.
