I just got back from the greatest concert I've ever seen
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 02:00 AM by NEDem
I saw Bruce Springsteen for the first time tonight in Omaha. I've seen more concerts than I can count, and tonight's show was without a doubt the single greatest rock concert I've been too. I don't think I'll see anything like that again.

If you have the chance, get out and see this show. You won't regret it.

One of the cool things that happened, is that Connor Oberst came out and sang Thunder Road with Bruce.

1. Bruce puts on the best show in rock n' roll!
I have seen him three times, and all three times he played his heart out!!
He really is amazing.

2. My wife said that
said that it really looked like he felt like he owed us a great show. And the band looked like they were having a freaking blast.

I'll say this, it takes some serious guts to walk into the reddest of red states and sing a song with the chorus "who is going to be the last man to die for a mistake." He took 3 or four swipes at * and told the crowd on several occasions that "there's a new wind a blowin" at one point he said "I know I'll be voting for change this year, I hope you do to." It was GREAT, and the crowd loved it.

He ended the show with an Irish folk song, "This American Land" I think its called (I'm probably wrong on the title).

6. I'm not a huge Springsteen fan, but Oberst making an appearance is very cool.

Nothing against Springsteen, mind you, just not my cup of tea. I am a pretty big onnor Oberst fan though.
