Sparks Fly On E Street: Bruce Springsteen, "Two Hearts" (1980)

Share this:

When the Reunion Tour rolled into Boston’s Fleet Center, it felt like Bruce was returning after decades, not just years. The actual length of time can be argued, depending upon your feelings about the tour with the “no-name” band back in the early 90’s vs. the Tunnel of Love tour.

What can’t be argued was the intensity of the experience, from the blistering feedback squall of the opening Adam Raised A Cain to the happy emotions of seeing Steve once again sharing a mic with Bruce during “Two Hearts.” Really, really great to see these two old friends raising the roof again.

This video isn’t from Boston, but from D.C. Catch that grin spreading across Bruce’s face as they launch into the second verse. That’s some pure joy right there.
