This is among the best shows I have ever seen, by Bruce and any artist Ive ever seen, I’ve been following Springsteen since 1978, went to fourteen shows on the original River Tour of 1981. Since then Ive seen Bruce and his bands 118 times.This is some great footage from the Bercy Arena Paris show (One of the best venues in the world) in 2012 the whole show’s video quality is awesome.

On July 5th I went to one of the most amazing concerts I’ve been to certainly in my Top ten of Springsteen shows: Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band live in Paris. It’s extremely rare to see someone rocking for almost four hours with not only an incredible energy, but also with such pleasure and excitement.

At Bercy, we saw The Boss give everything, even his body, when he let the audience carry him from the middle of the pit to the scene. It’s impossible not to be impressed by someone who enjoys performing so much, but when this someone is a rock legend, an extremely gifted musician, a 62 year-old men who has spent all his live making incredible music in various genres ; then you’re just blown away. Let’s not forget either that Bruce Springsteen’s band is no other than the E Street Band and this musicians are just top notch as well as great characters and performers.

Then there’s the amazing setlist, with all of Springsteen’s classics,  I won’t forget the night of the 5th of July 2012, when I saw one of the best live performances I’ve witnessed.
