Jack FM Welcomes Bruce Springsteen
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band's last concert with Clarence Clemons was right here in Buffalo. The band lost the loveable big guy, just six days after finishing thier tour to a stroke. Turns out that making music together was the band's way of completing the healing process. A new album "Wrecking Ball" and tour have been announced. And yes, there is a Buffalo Show at the First Niagara Center on April 13.
While the new CD, due out March 6, is mostly new material, fans of the Boss will likely recognize some of the songs that the band frequently played live including "Land of Hope and Dreams", "American Land", and the title track which he often opened his live shows with "Wrecking Ball". The first official song to be released from the new album is "We Take Care of Our Own" which you can hear below.
It's turning out to be a stellar concert season at the FNC this year with Roger Waters, Van Halen and now the Boss headlining at the arena. Tickets go on sale for the Wrecking Ball Tour this Saturday at 10 am. You can get them at the FNC box office, charge by phone at 888-223-6000 or at Livenation.com.
