Springsteen show is a Fenway classic
Five minutes from Fenway Park Tuesday night a new breed of T-shirt cropped up on the streets. In the familiar Red Sox font, the messages read “Bosston” and “Dancin’ in the Park.” Another one said “Bruce” with the Citgo appearing in the corner. Savvy business venture? Sure. But those shirts also spoke to the incredible draw Bruce Springsteen has in this town. Tuesday’s sold-out show — a tour de force of old-school showmanship and heartfelt connection with the audience — was a testament to why. It was the first of two nights before Springsteen and the E Street Band head to Gillette Stadium on Saturday. Springsteen had been to Fenway for a triumphant two-night stand in 2003.
