  • Negative search
    If you do not want to find certain expressions in your search result, you can cause this with placing a hyphen in front. Terms containing this phrase are excluded from the search result.

Oslo, Bergen and Gothenburg sold out in total 230 000 tickets in 2 hours. So those tickets are pretty much gone. On the other venues the best tickets are also gone, but possibel to get some decent seats here and there. Second concert in Barcelona on sale from 15/12, so if you have any Bruce fans you dont want at Roskilde, send them to BaraaaaaarcelonA!!

Well, it's says on Bruce's homepage that he will play on the 7th of July, but no, it's never that safe until Roskilde has said something. With that said, I would buy the ticket. Why would he give us a specific date, if it's not true?

True. I have a feeling these tickets will sell out quickly, so the earlier the better, but I guess it boils down to how much of a fan my dad is icon_razz.gif

I suppose I could try to sell them though if the date changes ... Wish I could afford them as a Christmas present icon_razz.gif

Who's talking about cheap? I'm seeing every Scandinavian show as well as the two Paris shows before the Roskilde show. Bruce-fans travel around and follow the shows, so this is no surprise.

I just dont get suprised of anything in his music. That's boring in my world. I can't say that there isn't enrgy in it. But music needs to surprise me and make me feel something. Bruce just dont do that.

But im happy for the booking because so many people likes him. I just dont and your sound pieces dont convince me.

If you want surprising music then 99.99999999% doesn't suit you as it has all been done before. And Bruce did it first

relax man, I agree with Jakob, Bruce do not surprise me in his music and no Bruce was not the first to make the music he did. It´s all about taste, and that´s something that always ends in chaos when you try to discuss it.
To me Bruce is nothing special, and he makes boring songs. When I saw he was announced, I heard 3 full albums with him, I heard them all 3 times, and I couldn´t feel it. Out of the 3 albums there was 1 song I really liked.. But I am, as Jakob, totally happy with the booking. I know he´s a good performer, and I´ll look forward to experience him anyway.

To the above posters.

Well.. what I think makes Springsteen the legend he is.. is his songs and live performances. I dont know if you heard songs like Something in The night, Racing In The Streets, Darkness On The Edge of Town, Backstreets, Jungleland, Drive All Night and so on.. but to me it sounds like you might have not. I actually think I prefer his bootlegs over his studio albums. When you think of Springsteen; are you thinking Born In The USA with bandana and jeans? or are you thinking skinny angry brokehearted young dude with a pen as sahrp as Dylan? Needless to say, I think the last.

Here`s a list of some high quality Springsteen bootlegs I found on the net.. stellar stuff all tagged for ipod and such with coverwork nicely done. Legal (as long as no one is selling`em) and safe.

Btw.. I`d be very surprised if your not surprised of the sonic devlopment Springsteen had between 73-84. But fair dues, there are a lot of great bands I don care much for..

Take what you want, and leave the rest..

I think the reason why some may dislike him, at least in this forum, is this: "Since he is that big he must be kind of commercial and selling out."
But here's a thing: Bruce is never selling out. To me he is the greatest living legend. He has helped me make it through this life lots of times. Just wanna say: Thanks Boss. You are the reason I'm going to Roskilde

From one brother to another. Well written and thanks for your fine comment. We could maybe also add some of the newer too: "Nothing Man", "Terry's Song"

totally second this.. or third it, I guess it is by now icon_razz.gif..

Tons of respect to Roskilde for getting Bruce S, but the word boring that Jakob and JockeyFullOfBourbon uses describes pretty well how i feel about his music too.

I'm probably gonna see him anyway, if nothing clashes, and maybe that will change how i feeel icon_smile.gif

I´ve heard 3 albums with him: Born In The USA, Magic & Working On A Dream.

I´ve found Magic to be the best album, with songs like Radio Nowhere & Devil´s Arcade that I liked pretty much. Especially Radio Nowhere, which to me is his best song. And on Devil´s Arcade he does what I would like him to do MORE, experiment with the songs more, both with the sounds and structures.

Born In The USA was probably the worst song so far, and the whole album I really didn´t like. I just couldn´t feel it, both the production and the songs. Downbound Train is a good song though!

Allright.. Although I think Born In The USA & Magic are mighty fine albums (WOAD a bit meh) none of these albums are the reason I consider my self a fan. I`d say that most of the backbone of his concerts and legacy was built in the 70`s, maybe even upuntil 82` with the release of Nebraska (acoustic album he made in his kitchen, kinda bold release at the time for a major artist). Hope I`m not beeing to pushy here, but if you are willing to listen to some more of his stuff, I`d say at albums such as The Wild The Innoncent & The E-Street Shuffel, Born To Run, Darkness on the Edge of Town, The River and Nebraska is where you find that skinny brokenhearted angry young dude with a pen as sharp as Dylan icon_smile.gif And since you are asking for more experiment I`d bet that you will find the songs on The & Wild and The Innocencent as a positive surprise..

And just for you Mr JockeyFullOfBourbon.. at your convenience.. I made a quick playlist for you to listen to.. If you dont like it, thats fine.. at least you did`nt like the right stuff icon_wink.gif

I´ve heard it all through, and I enjoyed most of it. some funky stuff in there, some good acoustic stuff. However, though you have showed me some great sides to Bruce that I didn´t know he had, I´m still not a fan of his music.
But thanks, it was great man! after what I can hear, live is where he kicks ass, so I´m looking forward to his show icon_cool.gif
