Mom's Bucket List Party!

Coming to the end of Mom's Birthday Celebration
 with one last Big Night Out.

With 20,000 of her closet friends!

A little background:
My mom enjoyed hearing Bruce Springsteen's music when my brother and I were
 growing up and always wanted to see him.
Well maybe it was hearing us go on and on about him after a concert.
It became kinda like a Bucket List thing for her.
So guess what we did!


Are your speakers on?

We went Wednesday night and our older son, Erica (his girlfriend) and their friends went on Thursday night.

 This is at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
Can you smell all the charcoal grills going and
hear Bruce playing everywhere!
I guess you can since I have it playing here!

We have been to several of his concerts.
The last time he was in town Clarence Clemens was still playing.
What A Icon!

 The seats were good, but was happy
 for the big screens.
Vision not as good as in teen, 20's, 30's or 40's.

Mom looked like she was in Shock!
In her words "It was a once in a lifetime experience"
Bruce Groupies are starting to age and go bald.
 Including us! When did this all happen?

Jim had always said we would take each of our children to see at least one of his concerts.
So my mom and our youngest son (wish we had more children) got to experience this incredible night!
Notice Jim is wearing a hat!
Just saying!

My mother has been able to check allot off
 her bucket list.
And I am so glad we were able to do this together!

The E Street Band has such a unique sound and
when all the old songs started I got all choked up.
(OK-OK I cried !)

 Hard to believe Bruce is now 62!
At the last concert he had a big poster with
him on the front cover.
He said
"You know You Have Made It,
When You Are On The Cover Of AARP"

Most concerts (including this one) cameras are not allowed.
But my mother thought who would stop her!!!
And they didn't!
So without her, we wouldn't have photos.
Problem is I have no pictures of her inside the concert! 
I was busy watching, singing, screaming and crying.

So after you have listened to the songs here.
You can click here on 41 Shots to hear another great song of his. I never heard it before this concert but loved it.
