Based on the above responses to a Google search for information on Bruce Springsteen ticket sales, you would have plenty of reason to think I screwed up. Tickets for Springsteen’s April 2008 show in Ft. Lauderdale went on sale yesterday morning. I totally spaced it – I had some work stuff to do and completely forgot.

I woke up this morning and thought, “Oh shit!” I figured that outside of StubHub, there would be no way I’d get tickets. But, leave it to South Florida. I logged onto TicketMaster this morning and not only got tickets, but decent seats as well.

I don’t know whether to be disgusted at the people who didn’t buy tickets too fast for me to get mine, or to be happy they’re ignorant. In the end, I suppose it doesn’t matter.

Here’s some music from a 2002 show Bruce and the E Street Band did for MTV. Other than the fact this was recorded outside in New York City and it seemed to have been raining, I couldn’t find much information about the show. To the best of my knowledge, it was not released commercially.

Pretty sure this was a pre-show or during or combo of both that Bruce and co. played a few years back prior to the Grammys or something along those lines...it was like late 2001 or 2002 but the memory is hazy
