    Bruce Springsteen In DSM

    I know this board is full of young whipper-snappers (yeah, I said whipper-snappers) but this Jersey boy is getting excited for the Boss and the Legendary E-Street Band (minus Danny - RIP) to come to the Well on 9/21! I've got good seats on the right side of the stage (Sec. 102) and hope this show gets sold out for a rocking great time. Bruce - who will be turning 60 next month (unbelievable), still puts on a 2 1/2 hour + show, and the reports I've been seeing on Backstreets.com are very encouraging.

    Hope there are some of you folks are going - if you haven't been to a Bruce show, this is definitely one you should have on your concert resume.

    I would love to see the Boss. However I'm not willing to spend more than I do to go to every ISU home basketball game.

    Understand - But ISU has a basketball season every year!

    Priorities!

    I'd love to see the Boss live at some point, but unfortunately that show won't work for us......hope you have a great time!

    Not in the Jack or in Hilton - ISU fans are doing us a disservice by seeing any concert in DM.

    Newsflash! No concerts in Jack Trice since we went to grass field.

    Second - there is ZERO connection between concerts in DSM and supporting ISU athletics. Give me a break!

    I would love to go, but as other's have said, can't afford the ticket.

    Oh yeah, I'm 24. This whipper snapper likes the Boss.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I want to see the boss slide across the stage and rack himself on a camera like he did at the super bowl last year.

    Re: Bruce Springsteen In DSM

    I saw the Boss at Hilton back in the day, ...never forget it! Folks, if you haven't seen his show, you must go! Or at least some point in your life, that way after he retires into the "Rock 'n Roll H.O.F." you can say that you were there... you saw him! ...you contributed to his retirement! Long Live the Boss!

    Re: Bruce Springsteen In DSM

    I have seen Bruce 5 times -

    1984 - In Phoenix BITUSA tour
    1999 - In Philadelphia two nights in a row
    2000 - At State College, PA in the Bryce Jordan Center (Penn State)
    2006 - At the Well - Seeger Session Tour

    MY BIGGEST REGRET - In 1980 as a sophmore at ISU, I camped out in the middle of winter outside Hilton and purchased my first Bruce Springsteen ticket (The River Tour) . When the show date arrived, I had a huge test the next day in a class that I was not doing too well in and I sold the ticket hours before the show in order to study. Dumb - Dumb - Dumb.
