Wouldn't that be amazing? I wonder how many of the mothers of kids at the school that are fans like some of us here and how we would react at an event like this. Can you imagine the PTO meetings if Don was a member of it? :hilarious:

In 8th grade, my school's softball team played Greenhill at their school and I hit a home run.

Ive always been a dreamer

That is cool, SH.

Wow, I would love to know what the full set list was for Don's show. From that picture, it looks like he must have had his full band along with him, so I wonder how long he played. I would have loved to heard the Henley version of "The Times They are a Changin' " with Andres playing cello.

I just don't get it - why is it that none of us ever get invited to these kinds of shows??? :shrug: :wink:

Again, I repeat myself---How cool would that be? I'm picturing something like that in my kids school auditorium, I just can't imagine it! And he brought everybody.... but 3. :worried:

Along the same lines, there is a private school in South Jersey where the Springsteen kids go, and every year Bruce gives an all-out fund-raiser concert for the school that unfortunately is a private affair for those families. :-( I'm sure they earn a lot of bucks and have an awesome time doing so!

Cool about the home run, Holly!

After soaring through a set of his Eagles and solo hits, Don sang a haunting rendition of "The Times They are a Changin' " with Andres playing cello.

A wave of emotion swept through the crowd of 1,400 prep school parents as Don sang the final verse, "What you can't understand, your sons and your daughters are beyond your command."

:sigh: Can you even imagine?

What a fantastic event for the school and for all who attended! I am green with envy!
And while I loved the clips that an attendee posted, I WISH they had included a clip of Don and Andres on "The Times They are A-Changing." Now THAT is the clip I want to see!

Nice clips. I notice Peter Thorn is still in the band.
