Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band

Baby, if you were born to drive, come to Chicago’s United Center to see Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band September 28, and stay at the nearby and affordable Best Western Plus Chicago at Hillside!

Yes, the Boss, Bruce Springsteen and those lovable lads the E Street Band will rock you to next Thursday. We are talking thirty-three Springsteen hits such as “Born to Run,” “Dancing in the Dark,” “The Rising,” “Thunder Road,” “Sherry Darling,” “Meet Me in the City,” and it just gets better and better.

If you haven’t seen the Boss live, you’ve missed it. This writer saw five concerts in a row a decade ago, and the show never got dull. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are better than the circus!

Bruce Springsteen has won nine Grammy Awards. His song “Streets of Philadelphia,” won the Academy Award for Best Song, for the film “Philadelphia.” His iconic album “Born in the U.S.A.” sold thirty million records worldwide with seven of the songs hitting the Top Ten. His albums “The Ghost of Tom Joad” and “Nebraska” are poetic hymns to the heartland, in the tradition of Woody Guthrie.
