Ive always thought Bruce was overrated. He is pretty good at times, but standing for 3 hours listening to him rattle through a bunch of stuff ive never heard. Nope!

Yeah, I think he's probably on the list of "Bands/Artists you should see live at some point", but bar a few tracks I struggle to get the enthusiasm for this guy.

a heads up, I think the Saturday of Bruce clashes with the Champions League Final. So Friday might be the better option if that makes a difference for you

Yeah I think I'm gonna go to that. Not a huge fan, just want to tick that box really. Like I know it will be amazing.

Does anyone know, is Tom Morello always in the band or just the odd time?

I'd love to see Springsteen but I really hate Croke Park gigs.

That also puts me off.

Much prefer indoor stuff these days. Would be more likely to go if he was in the Odyssey or somewhere.

Ive never been to Croke, but i know to look at it id hate it. Whats the point being miles away looking at a wee screen. Fuck that. Thats the only reason i went to U2, cause it was indoors. Thought it would be a better view. DIdnt realise they would play half the gig 10 feet from us.

i don't think springsteen has played any indoor venues over this way for years and years now.

i don't usually enjoy stadium gigs, but i enjoy his. the crowds can be a bit mixed but you just have to make sure you get in early enough that you can get as close as possible to the stage.

I think I'll make an exception for Springsteen. I really want to see him before he slows down too much.

I like it. All their albums are pretty Similar. Few belters then lots of padding. The paddings good though, they dont really have any songs i hate, its just a lot of it sounds the same

Jesus are they still going? I thought everyone hates the Chilis these days. I've never seen a band jump the shark like they did.

Yeah, I'd rather it would have been inside also. Was at Foo Fighters there a couple of years back and the sound was decent enough though.

So that's RHCP and Beyonce announced on the same day.
