Bruce Springsteen is The Boss
Bruce Springsteen is one of the biggest names in classic rock, and he is still touring today. Tickets to Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are still in high demand, decades after his first show. His shows are still full of energy. His musical talent remains unparalleled, too, giving him an authority when it comes to performing. He is often called “the Boss,” after all.
One of Springsteen’s early influences was a fellow New Jersey native, Frank Sinatra. Although they have very different sounding music, their song styles do share some similarities. He was also strongly influenced by The Beatles, and shortly after seeing them play on television, he started performing live as a teenager. His first album came out in 1973, called Greetings from Asbury Park, NJ. It saw slow sales at first, but was very highly regarded by critics.
In the years since then, Springsteen has had many hits, including “Born to Run” and “Born in the U.S.A.” He’s known for his epic concerts, sometimes lasting more than three hours. For someone that’s now in his 60s, that’s an incredible feat. Tickets to Bruce Springsteen concerts carry a sort of bragging rights with them just because they have such a revered place within the world of rock and roll. He’s put out 18 albums, and has had ten number one albums in the U.S., tying him for third all time with Elvis Presley. Only the Beatles and Jay-Z have had more number one albums than him.
Springsteen has a tour planned for 2016 and then has hinted that there is a solo album in the works afterward. It’s an exciting time to be a Springsteen fan, to say the least. If you’ve never seen him in concert before, there are plenty of opportunities coming up. He’s in the public eye as much as ever before, more than 40 years after his first album came out. It puts him in great company when it comes to the legends of rock that he is often associated with. Tickets to Bruce Springsteen have never been a better gift for the classic rock fan.
