After spending the last week denying rumors that he was having an affair with a Monmouth County woman, you know Bruce Springsteen couldn’t wait to get back on stage to put the personal shit behind him. The Boss returned to the friendly confines of Boston on Tuesday for the first of two shows at the Garden and treated the crowd to an epic bustout.
Towards the middle of his set, Springsteen noticed a sign asking the band to play a cover of ZZ Top’s I’m Bad, I’m Nationwide complete with the lyrics and chord changes for the tune. The E Street Band hadn’t covered I’m Bad, I’m Nationwide since 1984, but that didn’t stop them from giving the tune a shot. After completing a decent version of the song The Boss told the crowd “Don’t try to stump the E Street Band!” Let’s take a look…
Last night, for the second and final Boston show, Bruce and the band debuted a cover of The Ramones’ I Wanna Be Sedated and welcomed hometown heroes the Dropkick Murphys up for a raging version of American Land. Quite a two-night stand for The Boss. The Working On A Dream Tour continues tomorrow night at the XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut.

This whole tour has been marked by folks on the floor with posters for random songs… either it’s some creative fans on tour or they are planted by roadies. Either way, it’s great to see them dust off some old schtuff!! Caught the Austin show and it rocked!
Springsteen doing the Ramones. Another sign of the apocalypse.
I love the boss, a few decades in the business and he is still throwing in surprises.
I saw him in London last summer and he was brilliant of course.
