Bruce Springsteen at Gillette Stadium is almost here!

This ticket is ALWAYS the most sought after ticket for many reasons. We’ll share some of them as well as a comprehensive guide of everything you need to make this concert experience, one to remember! Bruce hits Gillette August 24, and 26.

What Is It, About Bruce?

While I have always enjoyed his songs, I never understood why people called him: The Boss. Sure, his songs are great, but what’s the OMG, big deal, that people would scream about? I didn’t get it, until I SAW HIM, LIVE. In the 1990’s a friend offered me an extra ticket to join him and some friends in Chicago to see Bruce and his famous E Street Band. I have seen MANY great artists, like EltonBilly Joel and Phil Collins, LIVE. Springsteen was different. Other artists, you see, hear. Bruce Springsteen, is felt. 

Standing On The Piano

At one point during the show, Bruce jumped on a grand piano, and continued to play song after song, for AN HOUR. The energy, HIS ENERGY came off the stage and INTO my bones. I felt like he was playing TO me. OK….NOW, I get it. THAT’s what everyone is talking about. By the way, I only had two beers. It wasn’t that.  So, I can honestly say, seeing Springsteen was a once in a lifetime event I hope you get to experience.
