Does anyone know why Boston is getting such an underplay? It seems like all the surrounding cities (and often smaller music markets) are getting 10-20,000 cap venues while Bank Of America Pavilion only holds around 5,000 at best. I only ask because I was looking to make the trip up there, but tickets are pretty scarce.

I'd guess because they played CT twice back in May and played Maine on the 22nd. As for bigger venues than the BOA Pavillion, they'd have to play either the former Tweeter Center or the Garden, both of which hold 20,000 which is probably way too big.

A lot of my local friends went to the CT shows in May, because those were announced and went on sale long before they added the Pavillion date. I suspect if they hadn't done it that way, they might've been able to fill a larger arena in Boston.

Boston...my favorite city in the world.  I will be making my annual trek back there from California next month to Fenway.  Missing out on seeing the Boys there , though. I always stay in the Back Bay, and am pretty familar with the geography, but where excatly in the city is the BOA Pavillion?

That makes sense. Even still, they probably could have played a second night. The show has been sold out for quite some time now, seems the demand is there.

According to staff members at Saratoga, 20,000 were in attendance for that show.

I have a feeling the overhead cost for the Saratoga Performing Arts Center is a lot lower than the Comcast Center, otherwise they would have played there.

Personally, I'm thrilled the show's at the BOA Pavillion. The Comcast Center has the worst parking lot situation in the world, it's tough to get to and I can either train or walk to the Pavillion.

I grew up in the town directly next to Mansfield, and it took me over two hours to get home from a Springsteen show a few years ago.

Also, who's complaining about a more intimate setting for this tour? I got to see the show at a less intimate indoor venue at Mohegan Sun and now I get to see it outdoors and more intimate in Boston. Unfortunately, I think our seats were a bit better in CT.

No real surprises yet. "Marcella" was in and sounded awesome. Dave did "Getcha Back". Funny moment when Mike mentioned the President. I'll do the setlist when I don't have to type on a phone.

Off the top of my head in no order, Marcella, Pet Sounds, God Only Knows, Forever, Surfin USA, Surfin Safari, Hawaii, Sail On Sailor, Kokomo, Barbara Ann, Don't Back Down, 409, I Get Around, Little Deuce Coupe, Disney Girls, Wendy, Getcha Back, Don't Worry Baby, Why Do Fools Fall In Love, Do You Wanna Dance, Help Me Rhonda, California Saga, Cottonfields, Isn't It Time, TWGMTR, Wouldn't It Be Nice, I Just Wasn't Made For These Times, Our Prayer, Heroes & Villains, Little Honda, Add Some Music To Your Day, All This Is That, Be True To Your School, California Girls, Do It Again, Fun, Fun, Fun, Good Vibrations, In My Room, Surfer Girl, Kiss Me Baby, Please Let Me Wonder, Rock N Roll Music, Shut Down, Then I Kissed Her, When I Grow Up, Catch A Wave (I think?)

The only one I'm not sure about is Catch A Wave, so they played a pretty massive set.

I was kind of hoping to hear either Darlin or Ballad of Ole Betsy. I was very happy they played Getcha Back, it's a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine. I was glad they didn't do California Dreamin this time. I could probably do without Do You Wanna Dance and All This Is That. Wendy lags the show a little bit as well, though I do love that song.

Brian was ON tonight. He was groovin a couple times, his voice was maybe the best I've ever heard it. He told the crowd to clap during Good Vibrations and when someone flubbed a line on Add Some Music, he spoke up and laughed and said, "We forgot the lyrics" but you could barely hear it because I think someone else was talking over him. Really solid, especially on TWGMTR surprisingly. Dave was killer again on all of his leads, Al's voice was spot on.

Nelson came running down I think during Rock N Roll Music with a cowbell and was just blasting the thing in Al's ear, which Al had a good laugh about.

Cowsill's hi hat fell during Fun, Fun, Fun, so Nelson had to run behind him to help him out, he kept the beat just banging his floor tom, but it probably sounded a little weird to whoever didn't know what was going on.

Oh and at one point my girlfriend (who didn't go to the Mohegan show with me) turned to me and said, "Bruce is kind of useless" during one of his many times walking very far away from the mic and pumping up the crowd. I really do wish he would care more about singing than adjusting his mic and clapping his hands.

Post by: keysarsoze001 on June 26, 2012, 09:56:14 PM
Sorry, video's taking forever to upload considering it's only a minute long.

Meantime, great great show overall. I'd have liked "This Whole World", but I was quite happy with the set. Brian was really into it, lots of arm flapping and conducting the band. Mike worked the crowd really well, and Bruce jokingly referenced his Obama gaffe at one point. Brian seemed very emotional during GOK. I was sitting pretty close to him, and he was definitely staring at the video for a while. Then at the "ba ba ba" section in the middle, he turned back to his piano and sort of made a fist and held it up to his face as if trying to keep composure, immediately after which he wiped his eyes. Now, with Brian, who knows? That could've been a burp and sweat in his eyes. But it seemed like he was missing his brother. He spent the rest of the song with his eyes shut and his head down, but then dove right into GV.

I don't know if it had to do with the frequencies they were emphasizing in his voice, but he sounded to my ears rather like he did in '88 some of the time. A bit more treble than I was expecting.

Mike also sounded unbelievable. The YouTube videos didn't prepare me for how strong he sounded. Like he hasn't aged at all. Even more so for Al, who sounds incredibly like his younger self.

So by and large, fantastic show, thrilled that I went. Dropped half a week's pay at the merch stand, two tees, a hoodie, and the Al and Dave albums. Great experience, though. One I'll remember for a long long time.
