Some rock ‘n’ roll shows simply fill a Tuesday night with enough noise to free the audience from the minutiae of the work week. The band sings a couple songs and flashes some strobe lights—whoopity doo. Then there are concerts that are spiritual, startling, and almost revelatory that spark enlightenment and joy. Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band’s stop at the Honda Center as part of the Wrecking Ball Tour is one of those concerts. Since the Boss kicked off his tour in August at Fenway Park, he’s been on the road, igniting the lives of Americans from coast to coast. If you don’t have a ticket to this show yet, then you need to find a way—because seeing Bruce Springsteen live, well, it’s a renaissance of the body and the soul.
