    To be honest, I'm not a fan of this kind of music nor Bruce Springsteen himself but since I had never been to a stadium gig before and my g/f LOVES Bruce, I thought I'd go see what it'd be like...

    DSLRs were forbidden in the stadium so I didn't want to risk it and only brought my E-PM1 + Oly 45mm with me (since the silver combo kind of looks like a normal compact camera). Now that I know how easy it would have been to smuggle in the E-M5 I'm a bit disappointed I didn't do that... :wink:

    Anyways, I guess it says a lot about Bruce and the gig itself if I told you guys that I really enjoyed the gig and had a great time! I was sure I'd get bored after the first hour but I'm glad I couldn't have been more wrong. The concert lasted for about 4,5h, the weather was perfect and we got close enough to the stage so I can't complain. :biggrin:

    Here's a few samples of the pictures I took (click to enlarge). And the full Dropbox album can be found here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/df27744md7fsm8e/qqHiuexmZi

    Ahh, "The Boss!" That is his nickname.

    Saw him once during the Born in the USA tour in 1984. Heck of a songwriter and showman. Looks like he is still giving 4-5 hour performances.

    Looks like little Stevie Van Zandt is still with the band. I miss Clarence Clemmons' work. RIP brother.

    Love "The Boss". I"ve seen him six times and he's always been amazing. Not only great shots but more importantly...GREAT seats. :eek:

    Nice shots and high quality with the E-PM1. The last one is the best for me.

    Love the photos, particularly the last one. There is something engaging about a live concert that doesn't come through in a recording. Glad you enjoyed it!
