'Hello, Ohio!' (Psst! Boss, we're in Michigan)
11/15/2009 1:05 AM, AP
The curse of Friday the 13th struck Bruce Springsteen in a most unusual way: it made the 60-year-old rock legend forget where he was.
The Boss bellowed "Hello, Ohio!" to his fans at the Auburn Hills Palace in Michigan.
Springsteen referred to the neighboring state several times in the following 30 minutes until E Street Band guitarist Steve Van Zandt whispered in his ear.
A visibly embarrassed Springsteen grinned and said such a mistake was "every front man's nightmare."
The Detroit Free Press says Springsteen rocked the forgiving audience for nearly three hours Friday night with new and old hits including a complete performance of his album "Born to Run.

I was in the audience when Genesis came to the syria Mosque with the Trick of the Tail tour.the first one since PG left and all.
After doing dance on the volcano the crowd was going wild and Phil blurted out "good evening, baltimore.oh wait, this is pittsburgh, baltimore was lastnight."
was still a great show.

Every frontman's nightmare indeed. I wouldn't be so sure that this has never happened to Peter and if it hasn't it certainly could.
Night after night, a different city every day or two, could confuse anyone. And i must agree with Jen. A 3 hr. show? I'd forgive him as well. :-]

three hours shows are the norm for Bruce
he puts on a great show
I love Little Stevie in The Sopranos also he was so inspired by Pete's song Biko he formed Artists Against Apartheid in the mid 80's
Of course PG was involved
Tonight on my classic rock station at midnight Little Stevie has his own show for a couple of hours
you can listen to it at www.rock101.com
Don't know when he tapes it just wondering if he'll mention Bruce's gaffe

I will forgive The Boss almost anything. And, if I might add, he looks damn good for 60!
Whoever writes as many lyrics as our beloved PG is likely to, on occasion, slip up once in awhile. And we forgive him. He also looks damn good. Delicious. I'll take an order to go, please. :-] :-]

Yeah, i've seen The Boss and he does usually do long and awesome shows.
I've seen Todd Rundgren forget the piano chords for "Hello It's Me", probably his best known and most well played song. Everyone messes up now and then. It's human.
Went to see Jackson Browne a couple of weeks ago- the Sunday before our Loonie Gathering in Lancaster to be exact - and it turned into an a all request show.
I counted five times he forgot the lyrics to his own tunes.
He did a neat set of Warren Zevon completely impromptu that was pretty neat and didn't have a problem with those.
So maybe that's why PG has done the whole Scratch My Back thing-he remembers other artist tunes better than his own. ????? :-]
