Springsteen creates whole new performance templateAfter checking off all the rock-star superlatives in his 68 years, Bruce Springsteen has set out to create an entirely new performance template. This is a set piece, not a concert where Springsteen usually changes his set-list from night to night.The songs – 15 of them in a 130-minute performance – were secondary to Springsteen's stories about growing up in Freehold, New Jersey, peeks into what he's reached for artistically and pokes at his own persona.Some of Springsteen's stories about growin' up (the title of his opening song) should be familiar to anyone who's read his autobiography, and he even reads from it.Springsteen paid tender tribute to late bandmate Clarence Clemons in the song that references him, "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out".While Springsteen brings his story full circle by recollecting his distress at returning to his childhood street and finding the tree he had climbed as a boy had been cut down, much of the latter third of "Springsteen on Broadway" is outward looking and feels more like a concert than a show.
