Bruce Springsteen – Estadio el Molinon, Gijon, Spain (June 26th, 2013) – version #2 – Mp3


This was the only concert in Spain during this second leg in Europe of the Wrecking Ball tour, after 6 shows in Spanish ground last year, just one concert around here this time looked like too little (but the current economic crisis plus the incredible VAT increase to 21% in cultural activities has this devastating effect). All tickets were gone in less than four hours and the expectations were really high, after the amazing shows in Madrid and Barcelona last year.

We traveled from Madrid early in the morning the day of the show, and we spent the day queueing to make sure we got a nice spot in the pit. All the talk with my friends during the days prior to the show were making bets as to which full album we would be getting (BITUSA having the most votes, although we were praying for a non album show.

We managed to get into the pit and found a nice spot in the back aligned with the left side stack of speakers (not many clappers around which is quite difficult in Spain). I prepared the set up which was pretty amazing this time, as I was wearing the sets of mics on a baseball hat (not very sthealthy if you ask me, how do you hide your mics in a hat?!?!). From the start it was evident that Bruce had high energy today and My Love Will Not Let You Down really got everybody on fire pretty early. The requests were pretty impresive too (Better Days, Ain’t Good Enough For You!!!), and as the show progressed it was evident that we were not getting a full album. And what about the encores… just a pretty amazing show.

I enjoyed this show a lot, and I think that the setlist is really amazing compared to many other european shows. I think that when you go to so many shows by one artist you start looking for the rarity you have never listened live, and you start to measure the shows just for these songs, but this time I was just looking to enjoy the show with all my friends and I really did!!!!!

Second source for the Gijón show, and this is even better than the first one. There’s less intrussions from the crowd and the few noises around are not disturbing when you listen to the recording. I want to thank earlmv, once again, for the postproduction job (some EQ and track splitting) to improve the sound and make it more enjoyable to you. I’m too lazy and it would have taken me months before I had this ready to upload, but thanks to him you can enjoy it now!!!
