Bruce Springsteen in Rome, rain doesn’t scare the people of the Boss at the Circus Maximus

The fifty thousand fans who had been waiting for this evening for a year did not give up

“Rome! Rome! Rome!”. This is how Bruce Springsteen greeted his “people” in front of a packed Circus Maximus who didn’t let themselves be discouraged by the risk of a leaden and menacing sky that held their breath all day long. Fifty thousand fans who have been waiting for this evening for a year and have not given up: the Boss welcomes them at 7.30 pm sharp with ‘My love will not let you down’ and, then, “Death To My Hometown”, “No Surrender”, “Ghost “, “All night rehearsals”. Bruce changes the Ferrarese lineup, gives “Darkness of The Edge of Town” and, then, the splendid ballad “Letter to you”.

People want to sing, to dance, to exorcise the facts that have been troubling the country for days. Mobile phones turned on in unison create a powerful scenographic effect. the Circus Maximus is so full as to initially create some minor discomfort for assistance in restoring some order, but then everything proceeds perfectly without problems. The concert continues in crescendo, with “Because The Night” the Circus Maximus explodes. Among the guests announced for the Roman evening Sting, Thomas of Maneskin, Chris Rock, Isla Fisher, Edoardo Leo, Luca Marinelli, Giuseppe Battistini and Aiomone Romizzi of Fask.
