Photos and videos from Bruce’s mighty gig at Wembley last night. Trite as it is to say, he truly managed the improbable task of making you forget that you were in a massive stadium. I was caught up in the music, dancing and singing with abandon – I have a brief clip of him performing ‘Hungry Heart’ which I haven’t uploaded as I was too busy jumping around to keep it focused on anything at all plus it has me very loudly screeching along. A recent Springsteen bio has the title “Bruce Springsteen and the Promise of Rock ‘n’ Roll’ which alludes to his evangelical power. I defy anyone to leave his gigs unconverted and not wishing to proselytize about the transcendent power of popular music done¬†right.¬†In an age where pop music is reduced to a consumer choice, where everything is ‘equal’ as long as someone is paying for it, Springsteen continues to be a standard bearer for putting the music front and centre.
