Here we are, just under one year from the 2008 presidential elections. Our economy sucks, the American dollar is quickly becoming as valuable as the Mexican peso, and our soon-to-be-former government leaders have lead their careers entrenched in power, corruption, and lies, turning American dreams into American nightmares. Is there any hope?
If you're a Bruce Springsteen-loving optimist, then yes.
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have announced plans of a 2008 tour that will bring them to Seattle appearance this Spring, on Saturday, March 29 at Key Arena, in support of his recent, totally awesome full-length, Magic.
Keep in mind that this might be the last time you see Max Weinberg, Little Stevie, Nils Lofgren, and Bruce on the same stage together.
Tickets go on sale December 8. That is, if you can afford them.
