Yay! Bruce Will Play All of "Born to Run" in Cleveland




We're getting oh-so-tired of all these bands trying to spark sagging ticket sales by performing albums in their entirety (seriously: Does anyone really need to hear everything from Dr. Fucking Feelgood?).

But we're all for the latest bit of news coming Cleveland's way: Bruce Springsteen will perform Born to Run in its entirety when he plays Quicken Loans Arena on November 10.

That's cool news for us. The classic 1975 album even comes with two perfect bathroom breaks: "Night" and "Meeting Across the River."

But you'll want to stay seated for the rest of the terrific record, especially if Springsteen works "Backstreets" into the most excellent epic it became during the 1978 tour. —Michael Gallucci
