The Boss smashed open his special week with a wrecking ball.
Released earlier in February, “We Take Care of Our Own” is a politically charged, populist tune, while “Wrecking Ball” is a call back to his roots in New Jersey. References to the Meadowlands and the Super Bowl champion Giants especially pleased the hometown crowd; those sounds from the audience at the end of the latter track are calls of “Bruce,” not boos.
The E Street Band, which suffered the loss of longtime saxophone player Clarence Clemons last June, announced earlier in the month that Clemons’ nephew Jake Clemons would share duties on the instrument when the group launches their new tour, which launches March 18 in Atlanta.
Springsteen will return to Fallon on Friday for what’s being touted as an all-Bruce show, while Kenny Chesney and Elvis Costello will perform covers of his songs on Tuesday and Thursday, respectively.
