Springsteen Video of the Week - Thundercrack at Fenway Park (8/15)




The Boss is back in the U.S.A and his first shows back at Fenway quickly became legendary in the Springsteen community with the second night (8/15) boasting a killer set list.

100.7 WZLX Classic Rock posted a series of videos from the shows highlighting some of the top songs. I would have loved to have been there for "Thundercrack" and while the above video isn't great quality, I love listening to Bruce's introduction describing their experience opening for other bands when they were first getting started. Bruce says they had to make convoluted songs in order for them to stand out with the crowd (explains a lot) and that "Thundercrack was their first showstopper." I would have loved to see "Thundercrack" performed back then and would love to see it played now. He's played it five times on the Wrecking Ball tour - twice in Boston. Here's to hoping for a few more performances before the tour wraps up!

We'll be attending Wrigley Field on September 7 and MetLife on September 22. We won't hold out breath for "Thundercrack" on either night, but we will be reporting back on the shows!
