Bruce Springsteen breaks record again for the longest US show

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band just don’t want to leave the stage.

Wednesday night’s concert at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia lasted nearly four hours and four minutes, breaking the previous record for the group’s longest US show set last week.

Philadelphia Daily News sports statistician and Springsteen fan Bob Vetrone Jr. clocked the show at four hours, three minutes, 46 seconds.

The band played for four hours on August 30 at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

The Boss’s longest show in the world was four hours, six minutes in Helsinki, Finland, in 2012.

The rocker’s 75-show US and European The River Tour wraps up with a show in Foxborough, Massachusetts, on September 14.

Foxborough officials voted last week to extend its concert curfew by 15 minutes, to 11:30 pm, for Springsteen.
