Today WBLM celebrates the 71st birthday of an Iconic American Rock and Roll Treasure. He was born Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen on September 23, 1949 in Long Branch, New Jersey. When and where did he play concerts in Maine?
Legend has it that Bruce Springsteen's first show in Maine was at a little college in Houlton in 1973. This was 2 years before he became a superstar with Born to Run. We love that he really went the distance and played the 'County'.
It was 41 years ago at the Central Maine Youth Center in Lewiston! The one and only Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band made their second trek to the Pine Tree State on March 19, 1977. What a way to kick-off springtime in Maine, eh?
