Love the Boss? You’ll want to be heading here

The Boss is getting older. He’s not called Bruce Springchicken, after all.

Bruce Springsteen is nearly 69 (nice) years old. He’s sold 135 million records in that time, amassed all the awards in the world, been given the Presidential Medal of Freedom and inspired a lot of people to tie things around their heads.

The night before his birthday, Saturday September 22nd, there’s a night paying tribute to New Jersey’s favourite son by playing nothing but Bruce all night long.

Hungry Heart, the UK’s only all-Springsteen night, will be going through the classics, obscure B-sides, live versions, alternate versions, everything Boss-related. 

There’ll be fists in the air, soaring heart-rates, tears, sweat and red baseball caps sticking out of jeans pockets.

Essentially, if you are a Bruce fan: heaven.

It’s all put together by Springsteen superfan Hannah, who runs the blog Burgers & Bruce and essentially follows Springsteen around the world, gorging on burgers in every city he plays. 

Appropriately, she has Bleecker Burgers on board for the party, and it’s all taking place in a brewery (Mick’s Garage in Hackney Wick) so beer is unlikely to be in short supply.

The night kicks off at 8pm and runs until 3am – expect a massive celebration at midnight when Bruce’s birthday arrives and the Boss hits the last year of his sixties. Tickets are £12.50 and need to be bought in advance

Run! Run like you were born to!
