Bruce Springsteen and E Street Band Play Fenway Park In Boston - Fantastic Performances, Here's A Taste But No Help For The Red Sox
Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band played Fenway Park in Boston this past week. Nothing more needs to be said other than this Yankee fan wished he was there. Here's some of what happened. Enjoy.
Opening with Take Me Out To The Ball Game and The Promised Land.
Later Tenth Avenue Freeze Out with a tribute to the Big Man Clarence Clemons.

Hope to see him in NYC soon.
Some Boston Red Sox fans are hoping that Springsteen's 2012 Fenway Concerts, like his 2003 concerts, are an omen of better days ahead for their team this season. According to Peter Gammons at MLB:
The last time Bruce Springsteen played Fenway Park was 2003. He opened with an homage to Boston music by playing the Remains' version of "Diddy Wah Diddy," and the highlight was his exorcism of the mythical curse at the wall during an unforgettable version of "Mary's Place." And, of course, a year later, the curse was broken, Boston won two World Series in four years, and all was right and good in Red Sox Nation.But I doubt it.
Bruce returns to Fenway on Tuesday, with loyalists begging that his tribute to The Olde Towne Team be "The Rising." There have been no pennants since 2007, no postseason series won since the American League Division Series in '08, and the Red Sox haven't even made the playoffs since '09....
