David Corio: Bruce Springsteen, Wembley Arena, London, 1981


David Corio recalls: “This photo of Bruce Springsteen was taken from the audience – I hadn’t got a photo pass but was lucky enough to get a ticket for the show and I managed to get near to the stage at the huge Wembley Arena. Apart from a couple of shows in 1975 this was the first big concert in Europe for ‘The Boss’ as he is affectionately known. He was famous for his energetic sets and this show lasted for three hours and he didn’t stop moving for the entire show. He climbed up onto the speakers, leaped across the stage and pulled girls out from the audience to dance or sing with him.

Springsteen supports many social causes, keeps to his working–class roots and speaks out very strongly on political issues. He has donated money to war veterans groups, endorsed Barack Obama early in his political campaign and most recently took part in fund-raising events for Haiti after the earthquake.

He still lives in New Jersey where he was born – his 1973 debut album ‘Greetings From Asbury Park’, was named after the run-down sea-side resort where he still occasionally plays the tiny Stone Pony Club (capacity – 775 people) . A contrast to the 137,000 people that were at the Glastonbury festival when he performed in 2009!”
