So the dust has settled on my rocker boots, the pictures have been stored and filed and the t-shirt washed and dried, my Bruce mission is well and truly over ( for this quarter!). From the manic dash to get to the London Hyde Park gig, only to find myself waaay too far down the back, still had a ball (despite the silencing of Macca and Bruce, music history and London pulls the plug!), but knew that for Dublin it was queue for the pit or nothing. I got down to the RDS for Tuesdays gig 17th July at about 10.30am and there was approx. 800 queuing already, with people camping from 2 days previous! This is the power of a Bruce gig, I waited in line with all the other hopefuls and got my number at about 12.30 from the lovely fan Carla Carbonell who was keeping the pit list in order. Delighted was not even the word, I had finally made it on the Pit List for Bruce!!I met the best fans while waiting in line, every one just as eager as me to get up near to the action as possible. What happens after is bascially one of the best gigs I have ever witnessed, now I know he`s one of my idols so even if he sat on a chair and sang Baa Baa Black Sheep, I`d go away a happy camper, but there is nothing on this earth that compares to a Bruce gig, 3 and half hours of energy, emotion, crowd interaction, sweat, dancing, laughing , crying and exhilaration. I`ve been to my fair share of festivals/gigs and this man gives them all a run for their money, a true master of the live show and how to give back to the crowd. So as I try and come back down to earth from my few days of Bruce appreciation, I have some great memories to keep me going until I plan my next Bruce mission!
