There is no secret I love Bruce, is it?
I’m sitting here with my headphones on, playing the CD Working On A Dream out loud. It’s late and I don’t wanna wake up the neighbours.
It’s quite surreal. Tonight Bruce has held his second concert in Bergen and I haven’t seen any of them. Bruce has been to Norway and I haven’t seen him! Knowing that I have seen him the 8 last times he’s been here since ’93, it’s strange to not see him while he’s here.
He has rocked his ass off twice in Bergen and it makes me a bit sad to think about the fact that I haven’t been a part of it. Sigh. Bruce is so special to me, more than some people might think, so my heart aches a bit.
I’m so gratefull for Pinkpop and the almighty Chantie who got me tickets to see him in the Netherlands!
Now that he’s here, you can’t really avoide thinking / hearing about him. Not even if you wanted either. Not that I want that. It would be impossible. Norway loves Bruce and when he’s here, the media is crazy about him. You’re bound to read about him in the new-spapers! There are pictures, interviews, videos, reviews etc. It seems like people can’t get enough of this american guy! I know I can’t!
There was a documentary about Bruce and his new album on TV today. I thought it would be new, but I’ve seen it before. It came with the new CD. I had seen it before, but it was nice to see it again. This time I paid more attention to what he was saying. Bruce is a wise man. And funny. And almost everything in between!
Seeing that documentary made me put on the latest CD. I haven’t heard that in a long time. I’ve mostly listened to the old records; either a record from start to finish or a mix of all sorts of songs. I’ve sort of forgotten how good the last album is! I think I’ll be listening to this album for some while now.
I will be listening to Bruce and wait for the next time he comes. He’s said something like he would like to take a break from the E-Street Band and do something on his own again. He’s also said he would like to take break and spend time with his family and kids. But he let us know he won’t be away for a long time, because he loves being on the road! Good to know.
And if Bruce likes Bergen so much that he decides to come back there and not visit Oslo next time, there is always other options. I’ve heard that it’s quite easy to get flight tickets to the Netherlands… ;)
