    Saw him for the first time in 1977 on the 'Born

    to Run' tour in the tiny Paramount Theatre in Portland. Thrilling. When I saw him on 'The River' tour in 1980, I sat in the 10th row on the main floor at the old Memorial Coliseum. You all remember how he used to dive into the audience? Well, I swear this is true, I shall...

    Danced Onstage With Bruce

    Hi--In 1981 in Meadowlands arena concert I got pulled up to the stage to dance with Springsteen.  I know it's a fat chance, but I was wondering if there is anyway to find photos from that show.  I had some that were lost in a move and am extremely bummed. Any ideas?  Thanks.

    Saw him for the first time in the summer live

    in front of 90000 at wembley. My dad brought me and my brothers up on the boss from since I can remember. We treated our old man to see the boss for the first time in 11 years. We all loved it he simply is the greatest!. Born to Run always gives me goosebumps :)
