Boston Gets Hit by the Wrecking Ball

March 27, 2012


BOSTON -- Last night Bruce Springsteen brought his Wrecking Ball Tour to Boston’s TD Garden. Yesterday WGBH Boston Public Radio took a close at “Born to Run”; the song that cemented Springsteen’s career.  Today WGBH's Phillip Martin and Bob Seay talk about the concert, the fans and the politics of Bruce Springsteen.

Martin greeted fans coming out of last night's sold out show, and asked them what they thought about the Boss's latest performance, how his message foreshadowed the Occupy movement's theme of speaking for The 99 Percent, and how many fans still see Springsteen as a sort of Everyman.

One local fan Martin spoke with, Pat Healy, music editor of the Metro newspaper chain, takes his admiration of Bruce to the stage as Uke Springsteen.
