Springsteen plays “The Weight”

On May 6, 2012 by Will Hermes

In memory of Levon Helm…

The crowd sing-along is pretty remarkable. And it’s a surprisingly good fit for Bruce lyrically, doncha think?

The shows have been so moving on this tour, to judge from the one I saw in Albany, New York; the reviews; and the video clips. I feel really fortunate that Springsteen decided to keep touring with the E Street band after the death of Clarence Clemons.

By the way, here a piece I did for NPR about Levon Helm, who was a neighbor of mine here in the Mid-Hudson Valley. He will be missed. It’s been a rough year.
