The Boss Is Back Rockin In Madrid

The Boss, Bruce Springsteen, is back in Madrid with his legendary The E Street Band to performing three concerts in the capital to packed out crowds.

The first kicked off last night at the Cívitas Metropolitano Stadium with two more concerts on the 14th and 17th to complete the Madrid leg of the tour before moving on to Barcelona for two further nights at the Olympic Stadium.

Springsteen (New Jersey, 1949) showed a keen interest in music from an early age, learning to play guitar and setting up his first bands. In the 1970s, he gained popularity with his critically acclaimed album Born to Run (1975), which soon became a commercial hit. With songs like Thunder Road and Born to Run, Springsteen captured the public’s attention with his unique style and poetic lyrics.

Throughout his professional career, he has released a series of hit albums that have explored a variety of musical genres, ranging from rock and folk to pop. His most noteworthy albums include Darkness on the Edge of Town (1978), The River (1980) and Born in the U.S.A. (1984). This latter album in particular has been widely recognised as one of the most influential works of the 1980s.

After going solo for much of the 90s the Boss reconvened the E Street Band for live performances which has been a feeature of his musical career for the last 20 years.

In addition to his success in the music industry, Springsteen has also been recognised for his social and political commitment. Over the years, he has used his music to address issues such as the working class, inequality and social justice.
