  1. To have a dream is something usually it’s only a illusion but mr Springsteen and his band mates have brought that illusion to life and made real they seen & did more than any individual could possibly ever think of but when anyone of them wake up they say i can’t believe this is real happen to me then last so long only explanation is that man upstairs either like mr bruce and his E streets band or he like the music they play possibly nether one their just plain lucky but either way we appreciate you Bruce and the E streets band thank you dude good looking out all these years keep going strong a lost fan who ever thought all these years later we all still be here rocking out ☮️ kk

  2. Did he mean Watertown NY or MA? There’s a huge difference,
    Try Googling Watertown and see for yourselves.
