The Boss Bowl?

Still the Boss!

Still the Boss!

Well, I guess it was “A Long Time Comin.”

I don’t know if it’s a big deal, or if it cements him as being a has-been in the eyes of many … or maybe both … but if you believe the New York Post, Bruce Springsteen will be the halftime performer at Super Bowl XLIII (is that 43?) Feb. 1 in Tampa, Fla. Here’s the note from Page 6:

THE next Super Bowl is really going to rock. This year, Tom Petty rocked the halftime crowd at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. But Super Bowl XLIII on Feb. 1 in Tampa will feature Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, sources said. “He was just confirmed,” a spy added. “Little Stevie (Van Zandt) has already rented out the Hard Rock Café for a party.” A Boss rep didn’t return calls or e-mails.

For as long as I can remember, Bruce has been mentioned as one of the NFL’s top targets that they’ve never been able to land for the gig. A big reason involves his refusal to lip-synch anything, which was the norm for most Super Bowl music for sometime (see the totally-BS-but-yet-a-big-hit version of the “Star Spangled Banner” by Whitney Houston in 1991).

Nonetheless, should he be the performer, I won’t miss a note.

  1. He’s an icon, his performances are electric and he’s the very definition of Americana. I can’t think of a more perfect choice!

  2. I hoping perhaps Kajagoogoo or Dream Academy
