Springsteen, Grushecky Together Again

Grushecky and Springsteen perform in front of packed houses in Pittsburgh in 2010
Bruce Springsteen and legendary Pittsburgh musician Joe Grushecky will be performing two shows at Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall in Oakland at 7:30 p.m. November 3 and 4.  Tickets go on sale on Tuesday, October 18.  This is the second consecutive year that the 'Boss' will be performing at the intimate Pittsburgh venue with Grushecky and the Houserockers.  Last year audiences packed the hall and rocked out for over two-and-a half hours to the longtime friends commemorate the 15th anniversary of their collaborative effort "American Babylon."

Any memorable Grushecky or Springsteen shows in Pittsburgh that you've seen?

    Favorite Grushecky moments: Playing Dormont Fest in the fall of 2010 and playing at the Meadows Racetrack and Casino for the Kentucky Derby.

    Springsteen: Concert with E-Street Band in 2009 at Civic Arena, Grushecky made a guest appearance at end of show to play encore

  2. The Dormont festival was great, however it may have been topped by his incredible performance durng the Kentucky Derby in front of tens of fans

  3. I was interested in going to this, but when I checked the night before, the ticket prices were pretty high. It's probably worth it for a venue that size, but I just couldn't swing. Hopefully this becomes an annual thing and we can go in a year or two.
