Springsteen Breaks His Longest Gig Record
He plays for well over four hoursHis lengthy set lists may have caused a little controversy this year (when the plug was pulled at Hyde Park last month) but Springsteen took long sets to a whole new level as he wrapped up his European tour this week.
He played for a whopping FOUR HOURS, SIX MINUTES in Helsinki on Tuesday night. 33 songs were played during the main set, including covers of John Fogerty's 'Rockin' All Over The World', Southside Johnny's 'I Don't Want To Go Home', Jackie Wilson's '(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher And Higher' and The Isley Brothers' classic 'Twist And Shout'.
And that running time doesn't take into account a five song, 30 minute solo acoustic performance that Bruce performed for fans as they arrived at the stadium.
What do you think? Is four and half hours too long?
