Bruce Springsteen – 2013 Articles – Part 5

Bruce Springsteen Wrecking Ball Tour Photo 8

As someone of you already know, I’m currently on vacation. I only took my old and trusty netbook with me. It allows me to slowly update and build blog posts (one man project). I’m currently only focusing on the latest tour specials, as I can’t update the site with the same pace as with my main PC. And I should be doing all that vacation stuff with the family too. 🙂

Yes, there are tons of emails, twitter messages, facebook messages waiting. I’m doing my best to reply to everyone. Thanks for the patience.

Anyways. Here’s articles collected from the last few weeks:

Bruce Springsteen – 2013 Articles – Part 4


“No job, no peace, not rest”, I won’t be stopping when the tour is on a break. I keep collecting all the Bruce Springsteen articles I can find when there’s no shows going, and of course keep updating the tour specials. Sometimes I even edit and dub concert videos… but believe or not, this blog is not my full-time job. It’s a hobby, and I keep updating this blog, when I have extra time to spare.

I first thought about saving these articles for the next concert special (2013-06-15 – Wembley Stadium, London, England), but there’s still time to collect another article batch for that concert.
