Show #1: Spirit in the night.
Past 2 am in Brisbane. Means it's actually after 3 am in Melbourne, where this day began. I don't know why I lost a f*cking hour traveling northeast from Melbourne to Brisbane, except to say it probably has to do with Queenslandic intransigence.
I'm making words up 'cause it's late and I'm beat but my brain is like an exhausted painter chucking fistfuls of paint at a canvas long after the fingers and eyes and aesthetic sense have surrendered. The opening show of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band's 2013 Australian tour is in the books. Many questions to my previous post have been answered. (More on that tomorrow, er, later today.) Setlists have no doubt been posted and reviews must be poring in but my brain is weary so I'll show, not tell. At least for now.
So it's now after 3 am in Brisbane, after 4 am in my mind ... or whatever's left of it. Another travel day tomorrow. Next show is the opener in Sydney on Monday night.
