My beginning with BRUCE was early 1980. Got Tickets for the show on my best friend (JUDI) birthday. We headed to the Spectrum (Philly), fell in love and have been to every concert on the east coast USA since.
At one of the concerts I remarked to Judi, 'there are a lot of guys here'. This movie/concert helped me understand the draw. Bruce is telling their life story. I am so happy to have that perspective, it changes everything for me. I will be buying more BRUCE listening with different ears.
As I listened to U2 after 9/11.
I love BRUCE, he and E Street Band have sooo much fun and we become part of the fun.
We go to BRUCE to have fun with him, sing with him, laugh, dance, we get it all

Springsteen and I rocked!!!.
I'm a huge fan or so I thought I was until I met these fans, there stories were from the heart. The way Bruce affected their lives made me want more and now I will locate all the Bruce music I don't own and add it to my daily playlist.
I want to be them and live my life on the hopes and dreams Bruce has shown us all.
I cried at least half a dozen times, danced in my chair and clapped as if I was at a live concert.
I cried most when dear sweet Clarence was on stage, I miss him, RIP...
Great job, can't wait for it on DVD so I can watch it many times over again. My 30 year old daughter is also a fan and now lives in Australia can't wait to send her the DVD.

It was wonderful! Bruce communicates with everyone at every age. We took our 9 and 13 year olds and they enjoyed it, too! He is such a real person who understands the trials and tribulations of daily life.

If you are a real fan, you MUST go to see this film. You will smile, you will laugh, you will cry and be touched down to your very soul when you see and hear other true fans who feel as we do about the man and the music, and how it has impacted our lives...when you hear how others feel about Bruce, you just want to shout "yes, this person totally gets it!!" I also brought my husband, who has been dragged to many shows with me and does enjoy Bruce, but isn't a true fan, and never understood how I can listen to the music constantly and go to soooo many shows! He really enjoyed it and I felt like he could maybe understand more about where I'm coming from now that he has heard so many others who feel like I do. I hope they do a wider release because I would see it again!

It was good to hear from people that have absorbed the message of Springsteens's music. The stories were inspiring, cute, funny, touching, and I related to them. The bonus is the concert footage, current and classic. In the end, we circle around to confirm "The Boss" still seems to be a regular guy despite being in a lifestyle that turns many people into self-absorbed jerks.
