If you didn't get to see Bruce Springsteen during his last North America tour, you have another chance NOT to see him when he makes a return trip to the U.S. beginning October 23.

The closest Bruce will get to Texas during this next swing will be Missouri!  Make your plans today for November 17 in KC! (Huh?)

Sarcasm aside, the  "Wrecking Ball" tour has been so well received that not adding additional dates would deny Springsteen groupies a chance to see one of their favorite classic rockers, who looks virtually the same today, as when I saw him play in '84.

While Bruce has always been cutting edge by giving us new material in 2005 (Devils & Dust), 2006 (We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions), 2007 (Magic), 2009 (Working On A Dream), and now 2012's "Wrecking Ball", I'm still a fan of his earlier work, "Greetings from Asbury Park in 1973, "Born to Run" in 1975, "Darkness on the Edge Of Town" in 1978, "The River" in 1980, and "Born in the U.S.A." in 1984.

Find me a current Springsteen tune today that rivals Dancing In The Dark, Hungry Heart, BadlandsCover Me, Tenth Avenue Freezeout, Prove It All Night, or Born To Run.  Just my opinion here, but this is the Springsteen that "floats my boat".
