We arrived in New York City for a 10 day holiday. I flew from New York City to Los Angeles, CA for his 1st show in Springsteen’s new Devils and Dust tour.
An excellent show! Bruce played almost 3 hours at the Pantages Theatre on Hollywood Blvd. The Pantages Theatre is a very beautiful theatre and creates the perfect setting for an intimate solo acoustic concert. Springsteen plays guitar and piano on this tour. He was very focused on telling us his stories about love, children and everyday family life. But despite that he staid very in touch with the audience and treaded us with a few laughs. And he played quite some of my favorite songs. I particularly liked the new versions of Reason to Believe and Johnny 99.
Apparently there were quite some celebrities in the audience (Sean Penn, Jackson Browne, Meg Ryan, Danny DeVito and Pierce Brosnan), but I didn’t see any of them. I was too caught up in the moment to even think about looking for someone I might know, I guess.
You can read my full review of the show (in Dutch) on the website of Be True.
