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...
