Bruce Springsteen - Bruce Springsteen Pays Tribute To Late Saxophonist At Recent Shows


The Boss himself Bruce Springsteen is on the road for the umpteenth time of his career, having recently announced a string of stadium concerts across the States to promote his latest effort Wrecking Ball. However his show at the Palace in Detroit came with a hit of poignancy as he and the rest of the E Street Band paid their respects to the late saxophonist of the group Clarence Clemons early on in the show, The Detroit Free Press reports.
"Are we missing anybody tonight?" he shouted out to the swaying sell-out crowd during a stirring 'My City of Ruin' - from 2002's The Rising. He also poked fun of himself as the show turned to a more light-hearted affair, referring to the last time he played in Detroit in 2009 when he embarrassingly announced to the crowd "Hello Ohio." "This is Detroit" became his go too catchphrase for the night and even held up a fan's poster midway through the set that poked fun at the occasion. The poster displayed a hand drawn map of the state of Michigan with an arrow pointing to Detroit.
The tour will see him take on the cities of Boston, Toronto, Moncton, Vernon, Philadelphia, Chicago, Washington DC and East Rutherford in New Jersey. No announcement of a European tour has been made yet.
