Memories

Gbailby (Jungleland - 2010-11-21):
"
My first Springsteen Show! Thank you so much! I had waited so long to see him! I remember that there were seats, very unsual for a rock concert in Paris. During intermission we (the audience) very quietly folded all our seats, and handed them over to security. On the second show, on the 19th, there no seats! I took a picture (see attached) 2 great nights!
