“My antenna can only tell me 2022 at best,” Springsteen Say. “If that happens, I would think the concert industry is lucky… If I lose only one year of touring, I will consider myself lucky. Once you reach 70, there will be limited tours and limited Tour. You lost a year or two. It’s not that good, especially because I think this band is now capable of playing at a very, very, very, and even better level. Just like I have felt in my life. It’s just as important as being received…I can’t play the basic life force. This is something I’ve been living since I was 16 years old.”
