Bruce Springsteen – Glory Day at Wembley

Twenty eight years ago today, July 6 1985, I saw a concert by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, at Wembley Stadium. I arrived early, and managed to get a place near the front. For hour after hour, I stood in the crowd on a very hot day. It was uncomfortable, but totally worthwhile, as I got a great view. Bruce displayed amazing energy, and built a rapport with the fans, while his band provided tremendous support. The show began with Born in the USA, and continued with a succession of fine songs before Bruce took a break, following Thunder Road. The second part was even better, and included a stunning rendition of Because the Night. The concert ended with a lengthy medley of Twist and Shout and Do You Love Me. Bruce had been on stage for just over three hours, with a performance that was almost unbelievably brilliant – witnessing it was an inspiring experience.

Here is some great info on the show from Brucebase
