I have plenty to say, but I am exhausted!  Thirty-four songs almost three and a half hours.  Does Bruce realize that we are getting old?  I'll post more later, but if you have a chance to see him this tour, my all means do so!

Bowie's a very hard artist to cover. His cut-up lyrical style doesn't really make for interpretation by other artists either.

'Rebel Rebel', by contrast, is one of the most generic rock n roll things he ever did.

Bruce also rehearsed 'Suffragette City' (which I can imagine the ESB covering) and 'Changes' (which I most definitely can't)

I hadn't heard about him rehearsing SC or Changes. That would be cool. I actually thought he might do It's Hard To Be A Saint as a tribute.

I love Bruce, he's a class act.  Wish I was going to see him in WDC...his last tour was very very special...spiritual.

I would love to hear China Girl done for Bowie--I KNOW Iggy can do it...hope springs eternal.

I can imagine a Space Oddity cover...it would definatly be a Bruce version though

Bruce Springsteen Blamed for Student Arriving Late to School

By Dave Lifton February 10, 2016


...
Skip Bolen, Getty Images



For generations, children have been comping up with outlandish excuses as to why they were late or absent from school. A student in Albany, N.Y., said that a Bruce Springsteen concert was the reason for not getting to school on time yesterday, and her father had no problem with it.

The Times Union posted a letter posted by a man named Patrick Pipino: “To Whom It May Concern. Please excuse Isabelle’s tardiness to school today. In the interest of honesty, I feel it my obligation to be straight with all of you as to the reason. Last night Isabelle was lucky enough to see Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band in Albany, and darned if he didn’t play for three and a half hours.”

Monday night’s concert at the Times Union Center was the eighth stop on Springsteen’s The River 2016 tour. In addition to a full-album performance of The River, the show featured the tour premieres of “Be True,” a song that was originally the B-side of “Fade Away,” and “Detroit Medley,” a mash-up of four songs that Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels recorded in the mid-’60s.

“This may not seem like a good excuse,” Pipino continued. “But have you ever wondered how many kids would be late — or miss school outright — if God were to suddenly appear? It’s something like that.”

Springsteen and the E Street Band are playing the XL Center in Hartford, Ct., tonight. The U.S. leg of The River 2016 tour runs through April 25, and it is believed that European dates will be announced at some point in the near future.

“What rap did that was impressive was to show there are so many tone-deaf people out there,” he says. “All they need is a drum beat and somebody yelling over it and they’re happy. There’s an enormous market for people who can’t tell one note from another.” - Keef

Springsteen made a bold move yesterday. Cancelling his show in Greensboro, because of a controversial new law in North Carolina:

As you, my fans, know I’m scheduled to play in Greensboro, North Carolina this Sunday. As we also know, North Carolina has just passed HB2, which the media are referring to as the “bathroom” law. HB2 — known officially as the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act — dictates which bathrooms transgender people are permitted to use. Just as important, the law also attacks the rights of LGBT citizens to sue when their human rights are violated in the workplace. No other group of North Carolinians faces such a burden. To my mind, it’s an attempt by people who cannot stand the progress our country has made in recognizing the human rights of all of our citizens to overturn that progress. Right now, there are many groups, businesses, and individuals in North Carolina working to oppose and overcome these negative developments. Taking all of this into account, I feel that this is a time for me and the band to show solidarity for those freedom fighters. As a result, and with deepest apologies to our dedicated fans in Greensboro, we have canceled our show scheduled for Sunday, April 10th. Some things are more important than a rock show and this fight against prejudice and bigotry — which is happening as I write — is one of them. It is the strongest means I have for raising my voice in opposition to those who continue to push us backwards instead of forwards.
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band’s Sunday April 10th show is canceled. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.
