99.1 PLR celebrates 50 years! This week we are celebrating another great year in our history: 2007!
That year PLR welcomed Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band to Hartford’s XL Center. Springsteen kicked off his “Magic Tour” in Hartford, which was his first tour with the E Street Band since 2004. It was one of the biggest tours of the year and it grossed more than $200 million, ranking it second only to Bon Jovi’s Lost Highway Tour.
Bruce was supporting his fifteenth studio album, “Magic,” which was released the week before tour opener in Hartford. The album featured singles Radio Nowhere and Girls in Their Summer Clothes.
Today we look back at Springsteen’s sold out performance in Hartford…
