My first time with The Boss was back in the 70's at the Orpheum Theatre. Only a few hundred people as no one knew who he was back then, but I had a great time.Over the years I've been to many shows,about 20, some back to back because they are never the same, sorry to say the worst was two years ago at of all places Gillette, the sound just doesn't work like an indoors.
I also think the worst show that I have seen with Jimmy again 20+ was at Fenway, maybe due to no tailgating?
But that to the sound was not as good as Greatwoods. They are both showman, and know how to entertain!
Glad you had a good time, I passed on free tickets to the American Idol concert tonight in NH, let my son take my wife along with the in-laws

I remember a show back when the "River" came out, Providence Civic Center all we could get were behind the stage seats, about 500 people seating behind the stage that was set up in one end. The sound was good but we all were looking at the amps could hardy see the band for 2 hours, then the lights went down and you could hear things going on stage but you could see what was happening, until the lights come on and Bruce announced to everyone, "This is for the back seat drivers" for the next hour the band had there backs to the main crowd, and just played to us! I was about 12' away from all the guys that night. They played for over 5 hours, in-fact power was shut off to stage due to midnight curfew and he was in a great mood, got the place quite enough to play a few more songs with acoustic guitars, nothing better than when he would rip into a 30 minute version of Sandy or Rosalita, Thanks for bring back my youth

It was a neat trip, I was visiting my wife (then friend) and she had free tickets that she got from her work.
Same trip I met Alice Cooper !! He was signing autographs and talking to customers in his restaurant (Alice Cooperstown) in Phoenix.
