Concert Review
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band
Tuesday, May 12, 2009
United Center - Chicago

Last night was the 34th time I've seen Bruce Springsteen, 28 of which have been with the E Street Band. (You can see a rundown of all my Bruce shows & setlists here) And once again Bruce and the band did not disappoint, even though I wouldn't rank it as one of their best shows. The setlist didn't quite flow right; a few more true classics would have been nice. But in terms of live performers--and I've seen hundreds--even nearing 60 years of age, there's Bruce and then there's everyone else. And even with an aging band, he delivered a nearly 3 hour show that if not quite an all-time best, was still truly phenomenal.
