In advance of Bruce and the band's upcoming five-night extravaganza at Giants Stadium, our friends at the New Jersey Sports & Exposition Authority have prepared a fantastically informative document detailing public transportation (yes, the buses will be running as well as the new rail system), parking, ticket sales, will call and reservations, entry procedures, general admission line with Pit information, permitted and prohibited items, admission policies, tailgating, smoking, and information on the Community Food Bank of New Jersey and how you can win access to the Pit by donating canned food at the Stadium.It sounds like they want to avoid the mess some U2 fans were faced with last week.
And like The Drones, The Feelies, Dirty Three, Suicide and many others have done before (especially in the past few years) (and like he did recently in Chicago) (and like he did in Red Bank in 2008), and as the title of this post suggests, Bruce Springsteen (now 60 years old) is jumping on the full album show bandwagon. Tickets for those five NJ shows and for the two he's playing at MSG in November are on sale. A list of which albums he'll play at each Giants Stadium date, and all tour dates, below...
