suricattus wrote up an excellent concert report on the Springsteen show last night.

A few notes to add to her fine reporting:

Two things that always strike me at these shows. One is that Bruce is a really really really really good guitarist. The other is that he's the third-best guitarist on that stage.

Roy Bittan is just amazing. By doing Born to Run front to back, it shows up a) what a great album that was, b) how piano-heavy that album was, and c) how incredible a pianist Bittan has always been.

Patti Scialfa wasn't present, but Soozie Tyrell filled in admirably on the soprano harmonies (and the band isn't hurting for backup vocals anyhow), and she also did her usual amazing fiddle work.

Unlike last time, Max Weinberg actually did play the drums (his son Jay has been filling in while Max does his gig on The Tonight Show) -- I guess the historic nature of the show was such that the Mighty Max had to be the one on the toms.....

I put up some mediocre photos on Facebook.....

(Oh, and thanks to karistan for the icon!)
