    The Boss just added 25 new US dates and Tampa is the closest to me. Should I go see him again? My son wants to go too:up:

    I don't care for Springsteen, but getting the chance to spend the day with your son makes it all worth while.

    never pass on the chance to put a smile on a kids face.

    If you really like him I would. I've driven from Memphis to Knoxville (a little over 5 hours) to meet with some friends and then drove to Cincinnati from there (at least a few hours) to see a concert. It was worth it because I really liked the band.

    But I chose "Don't like Bruce so I don't have a valid opinion". So personally I'm not sure I'd walk next door to see him.

    I imagine that if you are going to make the commitment to drive 6.5 hours you could do a hell of a lot better than Broooooooce.....

    That being said, I wouldn't drive next door to see him so mine is probably not an objective view for you

    If you are a fan, how can you go wrong?

    Add in sharing the experience with your son and it's a win-win.

    Not a fan, but if you are and it's something fun you can do with your son the go for it and have a blast. Make a weekend out of it and go to Sea World, they have an incredible looking new Roller Coaster.

    Yeah but that was with a bellyful of tequila and 4 '8 balls' in the glove box. Man I miss the 80s. :sad:

    One thing I don't miss about Florida is how long it takes to get around. If I drove 6.5 hours, I'd cross 2.5 states!

    The Boss rules the concert scene value per dollar spent!

    ......6.5 hours to see The Boss w/son
    ....4 hours minimum to listen and appreciate The Boss and the E-Street Band w/son
    .....6.5 hours to drive back from experiencing what has been quoted as "the future of Rock and Roll" w/son

    = PRICELESS w/son
