Got to see The Boss himself in Dublin earlier this week. He’s the legend who inspired the short story, “The Dead Beats” and the characters, Alex and Tristan. He kicked off the show by making fun of what happened in Hyde Park, London the past Saturday when the authorities cut him off mid performance of “Twist and Shout” with Paul McCartney. “Before we were so rudely interrupted,” he told us at the RDS on Tuedsay….

As you know, I’m not a Springsteen fan, but I’m glad you had a good time. And he was in Hyde Park with Paul McCartney? Why would ANYONE cut off Twist and Shout? With Paul McCartney! I heart Paul McCartney.
I know! They played past the curfew and the rich residents of the Hyde Park area like their peace, so the power was cut at 10.30pm on a Saturday night 🙂
Glad you got to that, I am a major fan of Mr Springsteen’s since way back. We saw him in the RDS a few years ago and I never saw anyone work as hard as he and the band did. They genuinely interact with the audience and certainly give value for money, beautiful lyrics, great music, master musicians, what’s not to like?
He was great for getting the crowd going, such an entertainer. His performance of The River was one of the most memorable moments. From the first note on his harmonica, he had the entire audience in thrall and everyone knew the lyrics by heart so he had close to 35,000 people singing along.
You’ve inspired me, Emma. I just found out Bruce Springsteen has added more North American tours, and one is in Arizona. I’m already planning the road trip!!!
Yay! You will have a fantastic time. He’s a great live performer and he knows how to interact with the audience.
