Bruce Springsteen turns 67 today. When you're that old (by the way, Bruce, you don't look a day over 55), and still touring with the E Street Band, you don't care about rules.
Before a Sept. 14 concert at Gillette Stadium, Foxborough's Board of Selectmen agreed to push the town's stadium concert curfew by 15 minutes, from 11:15 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. Springsteen proceeded to go over the new curfew by 24 minutes, stopping at 11:54 p.m.
Springsteen, who is worth an estimated $60.5 million, would have been given a $22,429 fine. Before the town could even send The Boss a letter, the stadium boss stepped in. The Kraft Group, which owns Gillette Stadium, covered the overtime fine Wednesday, according to The Sun Chronicle.
The Foxborough concert was Springsteen's final North American stop on "The River Tour 2016." He and the E Street Band will be in Australia and New Zealand from Jan. 25-Feb. 25.
In three concerts at East Rutherford's MetLife Stadium in August, Springsteen broke the record for his longest U.S. concert three times. He topped off with a show of four hours, one minute on Aug. 30. A week later, he broke that record with a show of four hours, four minutes in Philadelphia. The Foxborough show was clocked at four hours, one minute.
