Story Title

The Boss Live in Montreal - January 23, 1981 (This is Freaky!)

At this show, seat were sold behind the stage as there was no backdrop. Springsteen did not ignore the cheap seats and strode behind Mighty Max's drumkit all night. During "Tenth Avenue Freezout", the third song, he went back there for the first time. My friend and I brought along a cheesy little Kodak camera to take some really bad pics. It was the first time I'd ever attempted to sneak a camera in not knowing that a good picture cannot be taken from 20 rows up behind the stage. At the 1:05 mark in the video you'll see a flash - that was me! Too bad we can't enlarge these things. I'll try to add some pics from the show in a later blog.
