Springsteen Sets Attendance Record at Barclays Center - Honors Prince.
Bruce Springsteen set a new attendance record for Brooklyn´s Barclays Center by playing for more than 18,000 as he and the E Street Band wrapped up a three month U.S. stint of "The River" tour. "Tonight this is going to be our last official performance of ´The River´ from start to finish," Springsteen said at the show. "We´re going to open up our set list overseas."
Springsteen lit up social media days earlier when he opened his first Barclays show with a cover of Prince´s "Purple Rain." For the closing night concert, he included the Prince classic as one of his encore performance along with " Thunder Road" and "Born to Run."
Check out Bruce´s powerful rendition of "Purple Rain" from Saturday´s show, available for free download via his website. The magic of the E street Band is in full display, particularly that of the great Nils Lofgren.
