  • Wow you really took me back in time JP. I was at that same concert at Hancher in 1978. Not only was Bruce at the top of his game, but we actually ran into him and the rest of the band minus Clarence after that concert at Perkins in Iowa city. We were talking out side when the automatic sprinklers came on spraying Bruce. I can still remember it as if it was yesterday.

  • Roberto, I have to confess that I had center seats, first level and was way in the back, and that after Bruce and the band were finished with their SECOND encore, my friend and I figured they were done and we left.

    We got as far as the Iowa River when we heard them start playing again, so we went back and NOBODY was in his seat--everyone was cramming as close to the stage as he could get and Bruce was singing old rock and roll tunes. I bet it went on for four hours.
