Of all the troubadour storytellers, no-one tells and sells a story like Bruce Springsteen. You’ve probably heard this already but his concert in Sydney last Friday night was the BEST concert ever. And tens of thousands of Sydney-siders agree.
Springsteen is a master of the narrative song/story and he weaves much compassion and humanity into the troubled and complex characters that populate his songs.
With such an incredible backlog of material I thought I might be disappointed if my favourites weren’t included in the live set. But no – there wasn’t a moment during his 3 hour performance where I felt less than totally satisfied and inspired by the amazing E Street Band and the wonderful stories that the Boss was sharing.
What a fabulous performer… what an amazing band… what a great storyteller!
