So much ink has been spilled about Bruce Springsteen during his 35-year-long performing life that we won't bother with all the usual drooling platitudes. So what to add when everything's been said? How about how ecstatic you should be that you won't have to deal with stupid LA rush-hour traffic for these Anaheim shows like you did when he played the decrepit Sports Arena? And how thankful you should be that Springsteen and his E Streeters have-judging from the set lists so far-had the good sense to dump that lame "Town Called Heartbreak" song, a track from his wife (and backup singer) Patti Scialfa's solo record, which seemed way too John-and-Yoko last fall? And how great it is that, once again, the floor is all general admission, so if you get to the Honda Center early enough and snag a lucky wristband, you can watch the show with your elbows on the stage so the man can sweat on you? Bruce fans . . . we're weird like this.
