I was at Tuesday's incredible show and I'm going again on the 30th! Bruce is amazing...almost 67 years old and he's putting on 4 hour energetic rock shows!

Bruce Springsteen Breaks His Record for Longest U.S. Show Twice in One Week

The Bruce Springsteen fans who came out this week for his shows at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. definitely got their money’s worth.

CBS reports Springsteen played for a whopping three hours and 52 minutes at the first show on Aug. 23, breaking his personal record for longest Stateside performance — and coming close to his all-time record of four hours and six minutes, set during a 2012 concert in Finland. And then the band came back and broke that record on Aug. 25, performing for four hours even.

Billboard notes that the Aug. 25 performance, while weighing in with slightly fewer songs (only 33 compared with the previous show’s 35), boasted a number of extra-special moments — including appearances from guitarist Tom Morello, guest vocals from a three-year-old fan, a marriage proposal, and the presence of Springsteen’s mother Adele in the audience.

Recently back from a European leg, Springsteen and the band have embarked on a short run of U.S. dates that’s currently set to conclude Sept. 14 in Massachusetts. On Sept. 23, he’s scheduled to release Chapter and Verse, a new compilation timed to coincide with the publication of his memoir, Born to Run.

Between my left and right speakers...
There are multiple CD sets out on bootleg from the early part of his tour. 24 gigs at last count. All stereo soundboards. Would buy 'em if I had the $$$. I don't doubt the shows you saw will be out soon...unofficially that is.

I bought the official versions from (nugs) brucespringsteen.net. I got all 4 shows I went to this tour. Pretty sure every show is available or will be.
