Clarence Clemons Tribute Concerts

Norfolk is a buzz over the possibility that The Boss may show up to play during the city's birthday weekend tribute to the late Big Man of the E Street Band, Clarence Clemons, but the promoter is staying low-key about that prospect.  A Friday (1/6) concert will take place at the Attucks Theatre, followed by a larger event Saturday night at the NorVa arena.  Bill Reid says Bruce Springsteen showing up to play is, '...certainly not anything that we're counting on.' One former E Street member is a lock to perform - drummer Vinny 'Mad Dog' Lopez. His take on the possibility Bruce will make an appearance was not any more convincing: 'He certainly knows about the shows in Norfolk.  Whether he's in town or in the United States of America, I don't know.' Bruce and the current lineup of the E Streeters are scheduled to perform in Spain next week.  Other performers paying tribute to the late sax man in VA this weekend include Southside Johnny and Gary US Bonds.  The temptation to resist performing Quarter To Three with Bonds while paying tribute to the bond he and Clarence had just might be too strong for Springsteen to resist.
