Party for new Boss album and tour

Back with a new album, «Magic,» his first since 2002’s Grammy Award-winning «The Rising,» Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band are currently touring the US and begin the European leg of the tour in Madrid on November 25, the first of 13 shows planned. Greece, however, has not been included on the itinerary. To avoid feeling totally detached, Springsteen’s fan club in Greece, dubbed «No Surrender,» will host a party for his new album and European tour this Friday night in Athens at the Blue Bar (8 Mesolongio, Halandri). Fans will get to hear rare B-sides as well as bootleg recordings from various stages of Springsteen’s career. Fifty DVDs featuring rare and previously unreleased material will be given away to fans who have yet to join the club, it announced, as long as they provide the doorman with the words «I thought I was the only one who listened to Bruce Springsteen in Greece,» presumably in Greek – but English or other languages may do!
