Bruce Springsteen
The writers of this blog are not music critics, and they don't consider a second (or third, fourth or fifth) mortgage to be a perfectly reasonable course of action to pay for front-row tickets, but despite being a whole lot more middle aged than they were when they first put \x34Born in the U.S.A.\x34 or \x34The River\x34 down on the turntable, still feels like Bruce has something -- OK, a lot of things -- to say about our country and the way we live our lives, things that not a lot of other artists are saying. And whether he's talking about the knife that can cut this pain from your heart, the house that's waiting for you to walk in or what that flag flying over the courthouse means, he's nailing down feelings that are so universal that they can raise your spirits and break your heart at the same time. Plus, let¹s face it, the man rocks.

In just a few short days, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will touch down in Norway for the next leg of their worldwide jaunt in support of Wrecking Ball — a jaunt that’s looking less and less likely to feature more U.S. dates, unfortunately. Last year the fall tour leg had been announced by April 13 — but we’re still holding out hope for at least a few wrap-up shows in our neck of the woods.

Meanwhile, there have been more than a few interesting Springsteen sightings and developments in the run-up to Europe Part Two — catch up on the ones you may have missed in the links below. But first, we honor Norway with this teaser for the second season of our favorite Norway-set TV show ever (better turn down the volume if you’re at work):



And now, the links:

• In case you missed it, this qualifies as Fairly Awesome: LancasterOnline posts full audio from surprise 1984 Springsteen show at Pennsylvania nightclub.

• Springsteen is up for some Billboard Music Awards, although somehow I doubt he cares that much.

• Matt Damon accidentally makes “Wrecking Ball: The Movie.”

• An Australian fan blogs his 10-show Springsteen concert experience.

• Will Billy and Bruce ride off into the sunset together on Bruce’s new Billy-designed motorcycle?

• Roy Bittan on the E Street Band: “We have no reason to stop now.”

• NEW YORK CITY SERENADE: Bruce and Patti take in Rita Wilson’s NYC singing debut at 54 Below, and get photobombed by Anna Wintour.

• Another ode to Springsteen by New Jersey’s Tramp-in-Chief.

• Stevie talks some more about “The Rascals” on Broadway.

• Burgers and Bruce offers a beginner’s guide to Springsteen concerts (and burgers).

• And then there’s this, from popster Carly Rae Jepson: “Is it weird that I saw Bruce Springsteen at a concert, and he is about 70, and I thought he was pretty sexy?” There is just so much wrong with that statement.

Finally, a sad farewell to the one and only Richie Havens, who once brought his own special interpretation to “Streets of Philadelphia”:
