Bruce Springsteen - Nebraska (Live)
Second Chance Week

We’ve all been drowned by our parents’ embarrassing music at some point and I was no exception to the rule at the insular age of fourteen, when the only thing that mattered was grumbling along to a daily Nirvana marathon. I just remember Bruce Springsteen feeling like the ultimate parent-rock, that themed a bygone era when the 50-something-year-olds of today were undoubtedly ‘cooler’…

I was dragged, scuffing and grumbling, to his show at the Cardiff Millennium Stadium and after a god-like, support-less, interval-free, three and a half hour show from the hottest almost-60-year-old, I left Wales with a brand new and permanent installation of a mental shrine, ever glowing in honour of The Boss.
