After delivering nearly 8 hours of action packed concerts to Philadelphia on Sept 7 & 9, Bruce Springsteen returned to Philly to give fans an experience of a lifetime. Here are a few MGK photos & links to the awesome coverage that Philly.com did of his appearance at Free Library of Philadelphia's Central Branch on Thursday September 29. Those that were able to buy tickets to this event (it sold out in minutes) were able to get a photo with him & a signed copy of his new autobiography Born To Run (in stores now).
Joan Palumbo of Blackwood won WMGK's contest to win tickets. Here's her photo.
WMGK staffers Sean Burke (below) and Kelly Wallace (pictured at top of this post) also had a face to face meeting with Mr. Springsteen.
Philly.com did an excellent job covering the event. Here's link to some fun moments that they captured.
Masterman fifth grader Michael Fenerty had a really good excuse for missing school Thursday, thanks to Bruce Springsteen. Fenerty attended Springsteen's fan meet-and-greet with his dad, Mike, a major Boss fan and memorabilia collector. Previously, Michael had expressed an interest in seeing Springsteen live, and Mike took him to the Sept.
Some fans thought they knew what they were going to say when they met him but.....
Joe Brooks waited all his life for a chance to meet Bruce Springsteen, and when that moment finally arrived on Thursday, he leaned close and said: Nothing. He couldn't get the words out. It was too emotional. And then it was over, and the next fan was being ushered onto the riser for their chance.
Some great photos captured during Springsteen's historic appearance at the Free Library.
