Terrific concert — no surprise there — and the worst sound system I’ve ever heard at a major concert. This muddled the sound on more than half the songs, made many solos inaudible, and Bruce’s one explicit political statement — aside from a generous dedication of one song to the San Francisco Food Bank — completely unintelligible.
From his web site, this is apparently what he said:
People come to my shows with many different kinds of political beliefs; I like that, we welcome all. There have been a lot of questions raised recently about the forthrightness of our government. This playing with the truth has been a part of both the Republican and Democratic administrations in the past and it is always wrong, never more so than when real lives are at stake. The question of whether we were mislead into the war in Iraq isn’t a liberal or conservative or Republican or Democratic question, it’s an American one. Protecting the democracy that we ask our sons and daughters to die for is our responsibility and our trust. Demanding accountability from our leaders is our job as citizens. It’s the American way. So may the truth will out.
