Bruce Springsteen in MA: By The Numbers

, Staff

Last week was all about Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band. The legendary classic rockers from New Jersey made Massachusetts their home for the week with three shows over the course of five days in Boston and Foxboro. The week began with two consecutive nights at Fenway Park (read our full review of the show here) and after a couple of days of rest, continued in Foxboro at Gillette Stadium on Saturday. Each of the shows clocked in at over 3 1/2 hours, proving “The Boss” is not slowing down at 62. We thought it would be fun to take a look over the eclectic setlists from each of the nights.
