Sisters in Sydney for Springsteen - Part 2

You can read Part 1 here 

So, when we left High Tea, we went back to the hotel to change and rest before the show. 

We wandered down to the train station, where I effortlessly figured out what train we needed, and where we needed to change trains. Apart from a bit of a wait for the train to Olympic Park, it was fairly smooth. 

Grace in her snazzy new outfit. I made her buy skinny jeans, she looks hot!

I even had 2 beers!
There was no support band, so Springsteen came on at 7.30pm, opening with American Land. It was amazing! He is amazing, the band is amazing.

They played, what I think, was a good mix of songs. Including Hungry Heart and Dancing in the dark (for which he got a 10 year old girl from the audience up on stage to sing with him!). He even played Born to Run. Awesome.

He crowd surfed, he walked through the audience. Unfortunately we were about 5 rows too far back, otherwise we would have been able to shake his hand. 

All in all, it was one of the most enjoyable, energetic and fun concerts I've ever been too. I don't think anyone left disappointed. 

We finally made it back to our hotel, after having to walk for half an hour uphill after discovering our train home was cancelled. By the end of the walk I was hobbling like an old woman. 

We both got about 3 hours sleep before hopping our cab to the airport to bring us home. We were both sporting our new tour shirts (along with a good portion of people at the airport that morning)

We were exhausted and sore, but oh so happy. It was definitely worth it :)

If you haven't seen Springsteen, and you get the chance. Do it.
