The Bruce Springsteen Timeline
Bruce Springsteen�s career is entering its sixth decade. From a teenager with a guitar in his hand and a dream in his head, through his superstardom of the Eighties, to today�s status of rock �n� roll grand old man, he has done just about everything there is to do as a musician (except getting a number one hit on Billboard's single chart). Sold-out stadiums from New Jersey to Zimbabwe, honored by the president, playing with every artist worth mentioning, selling millions of albums in the Eighties, flopping in the Nineties, marrying a model, raising three kids, you name it. And it�s all covered here on this extensive timeline. So dive right in and reminisce over these snapshots of an extraordinary career that, fortunately, doesn�t seem to be anywhere near its end.

Ending the European tour on the highest note possible, Bruce does his longest show ever in Helsinki, Finland.

Several shows on the European tour came close to the four-hour mark and saw a re-energized Bruce who was seemingly in the shape of his lifetime.
