Category: Following Bruce

On his 2014 High Hopes tour, I saw eight Bruce Springsteen concerts in the southeastern United States. On the road, I made some very dear new friends, had endless adventures, and most of all, discovered and fell in love with a whole new level of Bruce.

On The Way to Atlanta

I am mid-adventure. Time for a pause. Time to give great appreciation to the mysterious force of synchronicity. As I planned this trip, I followed my intuition to stay this past week Sunday to Friday in an Airbnb in Raleigh. It was near a…

Bruce and the E Street Band – Charlotte, NC

Charlotte was an amazing show. Really. I’m still a newbie to Bruce’s shows (though I’ve been a huge fan since 1975) but even the old-timers apparently are saying it was kinda phenomenal. I’m not going to do reviews (not my thing) but I do…

Charlotte Fans and Photos

The Charlotte show is a story best told in pictures. I did interview lots of fans, but I gotta say – mostly it was kind of the same old story.  I don’t think I’m a very creative interviewer. Taking photos is much more fun….

This Couple in Nashville

I realized after I wrote the Nashville Fans post that I forgot my very first interview couple – these two were so charming and sweet and real and I was so pleased with my first “fan on the street” interview that I can’t believe…

Nashville Fans and Interviews

My interviewing adventures started at about 2:15 P.M. when I walked up to the G.A. ticket wristband line, and I met Marta and Magela from Spain. I had arranged via the Backstreets ticket exchange board to buy my G.A. ticket from Marta. All I knew…

Five Days To Go

The countdown in the lower right of my site says “5 Day to Go.” Til I leave to follow Bruce Springsteen around the South for 3 weeks. Doesn’t seem possible. Isn’t it always like that? Whatever we plan, however far away it seems—suddenly it’s…

Following Bruce. Why?

In 1975, Born to Run came into my life. It rocked my world. This post is an attempt to explain what Bruce has meant to me—and why I’m following his tour and blogging about it. I was 12 years old. Just starting 7th grade….

Following Bruce – A BucketList Adventure Begins

I’m going to follow Bruce Springsteen on tour around the South this spring. No tickets in hand, no set places to stay, not even 100% sure which cities I’m going to. It’s a journey of my heart’s longing and a return to the core…
