It’s been more than 40 years since Bruce Springsteen burst on the national scene in 1973; since then he has released more than 20 albums and over 250 songs. Bruce Springsteen is that rarity among popular musicians, an artist consistently selling millions of albums and selling out arenas while still garnering widespread critical acclaim. He is still putting out critical and popular albums to this day—even as he approaches retirement age. His live shows are still the gold standard—only Phish and the Rolling Stones come close to the quality and quantity of his typical 3-hour concerts.
But even Bruce can’t do what WMNF is going to do—put on an 8 hour Bruce Springsteen concert featuring at least 50 of his greatest hits. (Of course it takes 20 bands to do it.) Not only will you hear lot’s of great songs—but you will be able to see Born to Run performed in its entirety by the expanded Talk to Mark band, and 10 singer/songwriters will each perform one song each in order from Bruce’s acoustic masterpiece Nebraska.
