Last week, Washington Post critic Paul Farhi questioned Bruce Springsteen for his use of an on-stage teleprompter, saying, “If he believes as deeply as we assume he does, why the need for a cheat sheet? Is he singing from the heart? Or is it just from the McScroll?”
Now, E Street Band guitarist Nils Lofgren has come to the Boss’ defense. In an open letter to The Washington Post, Lofgren writes, ”We played 192 different songs on [our last] tour. Dozens of those songs were from audience-request signs… [Bruce called] audibles that were songs unrehearsed or played in years or decades. With our collective musical memory, hand signals and teleprompter, it allows for those ambitious, ad-lib moments and an inspired, musical recklessness I believe is unique to our shows.”
Bruce Springsteen and his teleprompter will be at the Quicken Loans Arena on April 17th as part of The Wrecking Ball Tour. Tickets are still available HERE.
