Queen City Cadence: The Boss is headed to Buffalo
blog by Kathryn Przybyla • April 11, 2012 @ 8:00am
The time has come. The Boss is coming to Buffalo.
This Friday, Bruce Springsteen is making a legendary return to the Queen City for a highly anticipated performance with the E Street Band at First Niagara Center. Although according to the First Niagara Center website the tickets are sold out, we found a bunch of tickets still available through Stub Hub.
They are currently ranging from $50 to $6,700. Looks like someone is trying to make a bit of a profit off those highest priced?
Although this really is a man who needs no introduction,
Through four decades, Bruce Springsteen has served as a cultural phenomenon (twice, at least), a brittle and dark acoustic storyteller, a folk revivalist, a new Dylan, a working-class hero, “rock ‘n roll future,” a force for political and social change, an eloquent songwriter and unabashed party-rocker (often in the same song), a live performer of legendary energies, and a prodigy and preacher of the “majesty, the mystery and the ministry of rock ‘n roll.”
The show kicks off at 7:30 p.m. for the Buffalo stop of Springsteen’s Wrecking Ball Tour.
