"Since it was only my 5th Springsteen show there were loads of songs I have never seen him do before".

Bonnieh1048 (Dimeadozen - 2010-08-05):
"I was at THIS show, not the 2nd one. Thanks for this! I had a great time - note the date - because I am a CPA and needed Bruce to celebrate the end of tax season!!".

oldken (Dimeadozen - 2010-08-05):
"I was at both shows and have loved the version of show #2 that's around.
Thanks for making this a matched set!!!!".

Perllive (Dimeadozen - 2010-08-05):
"Got to go to both nights in LA, it was an incredible, amazing & wonderful 2 nights.
Tom Morello completely blew my mind, what an incredible musician. And Bruce & Band was never better (IMHO).
LA#2 Matrix is one of the sweetest gifts I've ever been given, & now LA#1 Matrix?
I've most certainly died & awoke in Bruce heaven!!

Rainman7 (Dimeadozen - 2010-08-05):
"Hey, me too, a CPA that is. I came from DC for both shows. I just filed extensions early for everything not done by 4/10. Wasn't gonna miss these shows in that storied arena before it's gone, like the Philly Spectrum.
I'm sure glad I made it and thanks to MP, Hoserama and others involved in both L.A. show Matrix versions. Just can't believe my good fortune to have these both of these shows in pristine versions to relive both Pit nights right in front of Clarence with many close ups of Bruce coming over to that corner. Simply incredible shows, voice issues and all, and this makes for a great early Christmas in August!
