Off to see The Boss...!

Ticket booked for Springsteen's Manchester gig, May 25th, his first UK date on The River tour.

Hope he appreciates the fact that I'll be driving up from Somerset and over-nighting...

Dates being ticked off on my wall calendar even as we speak...

Oh, and here's one of the reasons we think Springsteen's a class act, over and above his music:

This young lad, one Xabi Glovsky, was taken by his dad, Scott, to Springsteen's LA concert back on Tuesday evening. Bad news, it was a school night. So Xabi held up a note for The Boss to read:

'Bruce, I will be late to school tomorrow. Please sign my note.'

Result: Bruce spotted the poster from the stage and invited the Glovskys backstage, where he wrote to Xabi's teacher:

'Dear Ms Jackson, Xabi has been out very late rocking & rolling. Please excuse him if he is tardy!'

The note was signed with a flourish 'Bruce Springsteen,' and the autograph was accompanied by his personal guitar doodle.

The school's response?

Best late note...ever.

Turns out Ms Jackson's a fan too...
