Bruce Springsteen was HUGE in Phoenix AZ right from the start of their touring career. I lived there from 1980  - 1986 and saw him play a show at a concert venue when they lost power. Literally in the middle of the concert the place went dark. It takes  seemingly forever for they to get the power back on.  Then a spotlight comes on in the dark, pans to the stage and it's Bruce with a push broom just goofballing LOL...and even with the power delay, he played over a 4 hour show He stated at that concert how Phoenix was so supportive of he and the band how appreciative he was. And he played his ass off. THAT'S why he is THE BOSS.

-My wife got my into Springsteen by taking me to his shows. You go to see him and you leave saying to yourself, "man - that was a great show - he was really on tonight - you could feel it - we jut saw something special". And then every time you see him, he does the same thing - the guy in playing a great show EVERY night. I didn't like or dislike Bruce before seeing him, but after seeing him live a bunch of times I'm a fan - what a performer.

He mentions the Phoenix support in his book.  In the very beginning of his career, outside of NJ, Richmond, VA was also a favorite spot for him.

 

I first saw him in 1980 in Rochester during The River tour...seen him several times since, the last in 2016.  He's about to announce his 2023 N. American tour dates any day now.

BOOM YEP not surprised mate I lived it in PHX. I saw him again in Denver for the Born in the USA tour. But by then he was massively popular. Not the same vibe. Back then You could buy tickets and not need mortgage your house to see a show lol

 

Seeing he live was the Ticket. My roommate in college 🙂 she came home and played the album with Badlands on repeat in our room she singng away with the lyric ...we kind of got sick of it LOL.

I researched and THIS was the AZ show I referenced where the power went out . Hubby verified. 11-5-1980

listen to her sweet voice in the intro she sounds so young here. what a lovely song.

 

edit: one of my fav lyrics ever...m

 

 

If you're driving into town
With a dark cloud above you
Dial in the number
Who's bound to love you

Oh honey you turn me on
I'm a radio
I'm a country station
I'm a little bit corny
I'm a wildwood flower
Waving for you
Broadcasting tower
Waving for you

And I'm sending you out
This signal here
I hope you can pick it up
Loud and clear

I know you don't like weak women
You get bored so quick
And you don't like strong women
'Cause they're hip to your tricks

It's been dirty for dirty
Down the line
But you know I come when you whistle
When you're loving and kind

But if you've got too many doubts
If there's no good reception for me
Then tune me out, 'cause honey
Who needs the static

It hurts the head
And you wind up cracking
And the day goes dismal
From "Breakfast Barney"
To the sign-off prayer
What a sorry face you get to wear
I'm going to tell you again now
If you're still listening there

If you're driving into town
With a dark cloud above you
Dial in the number
Who's bound to love you

If you're lying on the beach
With the transistor going
Kick off the sandflies honey
The love's still flowing
If your head says forget it
But your heart's still smoking
Call me at the station
The lines are open

Today... two covers. First an old one. Alex Harvey beats Tom Jones by a mile.

 

 

And a very recent one. Wet Leg capture the essence of Psycho Killer very well.

Ivr got a beef with the lighting in this clip. I felt obscuring my vision wasn't a great view I wanted to see her and the video better. I did see a gold glitter lame  tank top drinking beer in a blue pickup. I think shes a hottie basically. She reminds me of her............who knew Katey Sagal was not only a great actress but a back up singer for Bette Midler and a bonafide rocker chick.

To celebrate Friday Happy Hour, a drinking song...

 

 

That was the best live clip I could find, recorded 30 years after the original studio recording. The audio quality is not very good. Thus, here is the original...

My new favorite band might be the heaviest I've ever heard

 

 

 

Is there a vocal other than “reeeeee?”

 

The heaviest and most disturbing thing I’ve run across this week… my inebriative state when posting on these music threads generally resembles the Scott Van Pelt dude in this.
