    Springsteen in Rochester

    If anybody from that area hears any updates on the status of the show Tuesday night, it would be greatly appreciated if you passed them on here.

    Thanks in advance

    Long you live and high you fly And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry And all you touch and all you see Is all your life will ever be.

    Re: Springsteen in Rochester

    Which of those three categories does Jack of All Trades fall into?

    Or American Land?

    Or This Depression?

    Or Dancing in the Dark?

    Or I'm on Fire?

    I don't know what you're referring to, nor was I being serious. Its always struck me as odd about how fanatical people get over music. Though if I had to guess without having heard any of those songs listed (and if I did I wouldnt know it) I'd just say Jersey. Because well its Jersey.

    Re: Springsteen in Rochester

    I've lived in Jersey since 1990 and although I've tried I could never go gaga for Bruce like a lot of the people who grew up here.

    It's like a religion or a cult to some people.

    I said you need to strive to better than everyone else. I didn't say you needed to be better than everyone else. But you gotta try. That's what character is. It's in the try.

    I was never 'gaga' over Springsteen either, but my youngest son latched on to his music and I've developed a heightened respect and enjoyment through him...which has been very cool. The live show is tremendous...should be on anybody's bucket list IMO.

    I went with my son to the Buffalo show, but my wife and I decided he could bring a friend with him to Rochester instead of one of us, and that worked out well. We went to dinner, and actually 'snuck in' to the arena to hear the last couple of tunes. While we were in the lobby, an older gentlemen and younger lady requested we take a picture of them. Father and daughter...her first Springsteen concert, his 51st.

    I've been to 4 of them.

    Don't get me wrong, I like him and I like his music but the people here (Jersey, not the Zone) seem to take it to a whole other level.

    Agreed. The guy has some talent and definitely some good songs, but he's not what some people make him out to be.
