Bruce Springsteen - Bruce Springsteen Delivers Emotional Set At Izod Center

In an emotional show that lasted almost three hours, Bruce Springsteen impressed fans and critics alike at his Izod Center show last night (April 3, 2012). Notably absent from the show was Springsteen's saxophonist Clarence Clemons, who passed away in June last year. He was replaced by his nephew, Jake, who, according to the New York Times, delivered "a strong approximation of his tone, though only a portion of his presence."
The gig itself appears to have been an emotional and cathartic one, as is usually the way with Springsteen's live shows and made even more poignant, as he was son home turf. "The home-field advantage that Mr. Springsteen savored throughout the show got its ideal expression in the new album's title track, which inhabits the point of view of the old Giants Stadium," wrote the New York Times. The set featured a number of Springsteen classics, including 'Thunder Road,' 'Born to Run' and 'Promised Land' which, according to the New York Daily News "left blisters on the ceiling."
