Bruce Springsteen's E-Street band to play in Old Colwyn


Stephanie Price

SOME OF the biggest names in American rock are coming to Old Colwyn for the annual Light of Day concert.

Bruce Springsteen’s very own E-Street band will be gracing the stage at Old Colwyn’s TAPE Community Arts Centre for the concert that raises funds to aid the fight against Parkinson’s disease.

The concert will be in conjunction with The Alarm frontman Mike Peter’s Love Hope Strength Foundation for which he is determined he will be playing despite his third diagnosis of cancer earlier this year. Bruce Springsteen’s band is well represented, with Clarence Clemons’ nephew, Jake Clemons, taking the stage along with fellow E-Street horn player Eddie Manion.

Jake took over the Springsteen duties when his uncle Clarence died in 2011. Making up the Jersey Shore trio, is Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Vini ‘Mad Dog’ Lopez – an early Springsteen collaborator from the Steel Mill days – before moving to The E Street Band.

Joining the bill will also be The Hooters, who opened the Philadelphia section of Live Aid and guitar vocalist Eric Bazilian is another Light Of Day supporter making the trip.

The longest standing Light of Day devotee, Jersey Shore rocker Joe D’Urso, will also be joining in.

The show will take place on Saturday, December 5 at TAPE Community Arts Centre, Berthes Road, Old Colwyn, starts at 7.30pm prompt – with tickets priced at £18 (in advance until December 4) and £20 on the nightVisit
