Now, the E Street Band has come

thousands of miles tonight.

And we're here for one reason.

Because you're here.


And where we want to go, we

can't get there by ourselves.

Where we want to go, we can't

get there by ourselves.

We need you.

So I got one question

that I want to ask you.

Can you feel the spirit?

If you can feel the spirit, I want you

to answer me with a "Yeah, yeah!"

Can you feel the spirit?

Yeah! Yeah!

Can you feel the spirit now?

Yeah, yeah, yeah!


My three words for Bruce Springsteen

are hope, heart and perspective.

Intense, passionate

and earnest.


Bruce is power.

Bruce is belief.

Bruce is togetherness.

My first experience with Bruce

Springsteen was in here

in this venue, 1987, The

Tunnel Of Love Express Tour.

And my journey

started on that night.

I was nine years old and I was

hanging in the fences up here

and having a blast

and, you know,

there must have been 100 people

behind me who couldn't see the show.

But I was a kid at the time,

so they probably thought,

"Hey, let the boy

enjoy himself."

But I remember

I recorded the entire show,

three and a half hours,

on an old Walkman,

and on the old cassette tapes,

and I still have them at home.

I keep them in a box and...

Once every now and then,

I stumble on to this box

and I look at it and I smile, you

know, because I actually remember.

I remember the night. It was

a beautiful summer night.

What these tapes represent

is basically why I keep them

and they represent a great day

in a nine-year-old boy's life

and that's priceless.

My favorite singer

is Bruce Springsteen

because I think

he puts like when

he has a concert,

he puts a lot of effort

into his singing.

Like he takes a deep

breath before every song

and like when the

camera goes close up,

you can just see

his veins popping out

because he's working so

hard and after one song

he's as sweaty as

a normal singer would be

after he's done like 10 songs.

These are some of

the pictures that I've...

I won, or I bought

or framed them.

But this particular one,

it's a little moldy.

I used to hold this

picture up to my son

and say, "Daddy, Daddy."

So I think maybe I played

some head games with my son

for the first few years of his life

thinking that this was his daddy.

A song about growing up.


Well, I stood

stone-like at midnight

Suspended in my masquerae

And I combed my hair

it looked just right

And commanded

the night brigade

I was open to pain

and crossed by the rain

And I walked on

my crooked crutch

I strolled all alone

through a fallout zone

And came out with

my soul untouched

I hid in the clouded

wrath of the crowd

When they said sit down

I stood up

Growing up

Well, the flag of piracy

blew from my mast

My sails were

set wing to wing

I had a jukebox graduate

for first mate

She couldn't sail

but she sure could sing

I pushed B-52 and bombed

them with the blues

With my gear set

stubborn on standing

I broke all the rules,

strafed my old high scho,

And never once

gave thought to landing

I hid in the clouded

wrath of the crowd

But when they said come don

I threw up

Growing up

Hi. I'm Theresa Martin

and this is what I've

collected over the years.

I have an abundance

of love for Bruce.

So, Theresa, when did you actually

become a Bruce Springsteen fan?

I became a Bruce Springsteen

fan in 1982.

Really? And do you recall how
