The Boss Brings The Energy In NYC

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band[/lastfm] took the stage of the storied Apollo Theater last Friday Night.

By all accounts The Boss brought the energy and stage presence, that we have come to expect.

Bruce Springsteen, who called himself the “hardest-working white man in show business”, was determined to prove it with music and antics that had the packed house rocking.

In a tribute to Apollo legend James Brown, the “hardest-working man in show business,” Springsteen worked the Godfather of Soul routine, staggering dramatically around the stage wearing a black towel “cape” that was ceremoniously draped onto his shoulders by guitarist Steven Van Zandt.

The show was broadcast live on SiriusXM Radio’s E Street Channel as a part of the company’s 10 year anniversary celebration, and it’s a prelude to Bruce’s world tour which launches March 18th.

The band’s last tour ended in 2009. “We’ve missed you,” Springsteen told the Apollo crowd.

His trademark intensity was there throughout the show with face furrowed with emotion and frame taut ready to strike.

The musical blend featured favorites and the stylistically wide-ranging new material. Other highlights included the Smokey Robinson/Temptations hit, “The Way You Do the Things You Do” and selections from Wilson Pickett as well as Sam and Dave.
