August is usually my least favorite month due to the humid weather in New York City, but August 23rd at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, home of the Boss, proved to be a night to remember.

The Boss was in town, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street band ruled the night.

Along with perfect temperatures of no humidity and cool weather that made it one night to remember, the Boss and his great band set the evening on fire with a near four-hour long show, one of the longest he’s ever put on in my recollection. Having seen Bruce many times over the years, I have always been amazed at his ability to play for over three hours and keep up that level of energy and brilliant guitar playing, not to mention his voice is still amazing at the age of 66. He truly is unreal.

The River Tour was a real crowd pleaser, no one wanted to leave. When the night ended, we walked off into the moonlight singing Bruce tunes all night long, like “spirits in the night.”
