Went to Harvard Square yesterday and it was packed. I asked what was going on and learned that Springsteen was signing copies of Born to Run book at Harvard COOP. Thousands of people were in line sine 6 am, with tickets they got day before. No way I was going to get in, but mman you cold even feel his aura outside of the store which it onlt a blovk away from when he performed that famous Harvard Square show in the 70s when a journalist gave a review-:I have seen the future of rock and it is Springsteen!
The book was discounted for like $24, tax included. In total it cost me like $350 to make a trip so more or less the same as deluxe edition book+CD combo and I got pre-signed book, IP signed vinyl and handshake + photo with the Boss. I'm not a diehard fan but I believe it was a pretty good deal and great to have such an encounter with one of the biggest living rockstars.
I spoke to a few people and all were from far away lie Montreal, NY, etc. I wonder how any Maschusetts people were there-seems like it wasa more bruce fans from all over northeast
I was able to do the Portland and San Francisco events. I live in Portland, so for $30 I got to shake hands, get a pic with him, and a signed book. By far, one of the best deals ever, IMO
unbelievable! Only drawback must have been the lines
the press says thousand were in line in Cambridge. How can the boss sign for so many in 3 hours? Does anyone know if he was there longer?
To my knowledge, all the books were pre-signed. He didn't sign books at the events. A special Publisher's Page in which he signed prior to the events was inserted and bound in the books.
here is a prior to e street lyric book I have by springsteen
here is a human rights tour boo signed.
