More than four decades into his music career, Bruce Springsteen is still playing concerts so lengthy that they test the endurance of even the most well-cushioned of fan ass cheeks. CL staff writer Thomas Wheatley, who describes his ass as boyish, won CL’s office ticket to Springsteen’s sold-out show at Philips Arena. Wheatley describes the concert as “awesome” and “fucking intense.”

At his seat, he says, he was surrounded by middle-aged dads who stood with their arms crossed mouthing every word Springsteen sang. Wheatley also reports that when Springsteen sang “Blinded By The Light,” a cut from his debut album famously covered by the Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, that the lyrics sounded more like “rolled up like a deuce” than “wrapped up like a douche.”
