Tickets went on sale the Friday after my Mom died. Since my dear friend Sairy was willing to drive out from New Jersey for the show and help me play the Ticketmaster game, we were able to get some damn good seats.
The Ticketmaster Fairy was very, very good to us. We were close enough to watch the stage, not necessarily the big screens. And we were awfully close to the runway that divided the floor.
It was my first show since Clarence Clemons passed away in 2011, and I admit to spending a good chunk of the show watching Jake Clemons, Clarence’s nephew, who has taken over the sax for the E Street Band.
We had one moment of excitement with a drunk in front of us getting thrown out (think the Ron White “Drunk in Pub-LICK” sketch. The drunk was a very big dude and was hauled out of there FAST), but then this happened.
And really, anyone who doesn’t have a good time at a Bruce show is trying to be a grouch. Not many shows better than The Boss, and the Wrecking Ball tour was a lot of fun!
All pics are from my cell phone camera. Not bad at all for a phone that's ready for replacement!
