Peter Wolf Joins Bruce Springsteen in Boston

Bruce Springsteen & the E-Street Band performed at Boston’s TD Garden last night as part of the support tour behind Wrecking Ball. Near the end of his set, Springsteen invited our Boston hero and J. Geils Band singer Peter Wolf to sing on a cover of the Steve Cropper/Eddie Floyd/Alvertis Isbell collaboration “Raise Your Hand.” The song has been a staple in both the Springsteen and J. Geils Band repertories for many years. Bruce Springsteen & the E-Street Band will perform in Philadelphia tomorrow.

Well, I didn’t go to the show, but I like Bruce – his recent performances notwithstanding, he does work his ass off on stage. My real beef is with Peter Wolf showing up everywhere here in Boston. Why, for example, does he have to show up with Phil Lesh?!? WTF? Wolf, stay home for a change…you’re not needed at every fucking show!

Ignorance shines through with the people who are miserable! For anyone to say Bruce does not jam & cannot sing they are dumber than they look! Bruce tears it up night after night and his message is much more clear then any Right Wing nut could ever do for support of the commoners! NOTAFANOFTHEBOSS..... – Enjoy your Gun or your Bible!

Does anyone know why the house lights came on for the entire 5 song encore of this show?

Peter Wolf invites himself to all this shit. I saw him crash U2 having drinks at the Four Seasons, crash Toot and the Maytals at a Big Brother event and then tell people to get high listening to them with kids in the audience. His 15 minutes ended in the 80’s and he is desperate to stay relevant I guess.
