Rock Till You Drop: Bruce Springsteen's Longest Concerts


It's been a while since my last blog post but I'm back and I've got one for you Bruce Springsteen fans! I just read Gillian Gaar's excellent new book from Motorbooks titled Springsteen @75 . When I had Gillian on the podcast, we talked about a concert Bruce performed back in the summer of 2012 that was his longest to date. This is mind-blowing.


Back on 7/31/12, Bruce and The E Street Band performed in Helsinki and ended up clocking in at four hours and six minutes! This is from a band well into their 60s! You can listen to the entire show at the top of the page. While you're listening, below is a list of Bruce's longest concerts to date posted to Reddit by a dedicated fan of "The Boss". As you'll see, Bruce has eclipsed the four-hour mark four times:
