Mike Woods has been to around 30 Bruce Springsteen concerts across the country and world. Like many fans he was waiting all day to get as close as he could to the stage, knowing Springsteen promises a good show.
“The band is so close and they’re all good musicians it seems they can pull any song out of their repertoire and hit it perfect,” said Woods. “And Bruce is just a showman and I think his words in his songs they just speak to people.”
Over 16,000 fans ditched the lawn chairs they brought, standing up and singing along to the songs into the night, songs they’ve heard year after year.
“His music it gets to the heart,” said Chris Sucapani of Syracuse. “He’s followed my life, I’ve been listening to him since I was 14 years old.”
