I went straight in and asked for tickets. They had 2 left and grabbed them like a shot. Called my brother in law to tell him and we both went along later. Fantastic gig. He played for around 3 and a half hours and almost ripped the roof of the old place. Every time I go back to the Playhouse, I think of that night. Great memories.

I then had the problem to explaining to my then girlfriend that I only had one ticket! The concert was everything I had read or heard about a Spingsteen event and still stays with me as the best concert ever, the intimacy, a fanatical crowd and the Boss at his awesome best. I now have two boys who first saw the Boss at a festival in France along with the Killers, they have also seen him at Hampden and watching them dance the night away just shows his music crosses all ages.
