2008-12-13 Tucson Time Capsule : Fans turned out for Springsteen (starnet-local)
http://www.azstarnet.com/sn/metro/271519.php
Eric Wexler and Heather Werthmuller said they don't follow rock star Bruce Springsteen everywhere, but the pair of California lawyers did fly in from Los Angeles just to see "The Boss" in concert Dec. 13, 1978. Earlier in the day, they had slipped into the Tucson Community Center arena to try to catch a glimpse of Springsteen. They were asked to leave before they got the chance. More than 7,500 fans did get to see Springsteen that night. According to the review, he put on "the best, the warmest, the most electrifying concert here in years." Read about a local fan who spent a week on the road traveling with the Springsteen tour in Tales From the Morgue at go.azstarnet.com/morguetales
