If you recently enjoyed reading David Remnick's New Yorker profile of the Boss, you might be happy to learn that Bruce Springsteen is coming to Hartford this fall, as part of his Wrecking Ball tour. The show will take place at the XL Center on Oct. 25. Tickets will be available through Ticketmaster (natch).
Springsteen and the E Street Band are known for their lengthy, revival-like shows, so my suggestion would be to start resting up from now, go to bed early whenever possible and don't avoid the multi-vitamin aisle at Whole Foods.
Here's a cliperoo from a Bruce show somewhere else.
