Springsteen Closes Giants Stadium

Fans entered Giants Stadium last night to a messge on the huge video screen above the stage reading, "Tonight is the last concert at Giants Stadium. October 9, 2009. Thank you New Jersey!"
With that, the E Street Band launched its 24th and final show at the stadium built the year after Born To Run came out.  The song Wrecking Ball, a tribute to the complex in the swamps of Jersey and fans that have been with him from the days of gigs at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, opened the night that included the Stones classic The Last Time as an audience request (see it here). Raucous last rites will be given when Bruce plays the Spectrum in Philadelphia, another site of many great shows over the decades that is due to face the wrecking ball soon.
