The Rising - A Springsteen tribute band worth catching

The Rising Bruce Springsteen E Street Band Tribute
I went to see The Rising last night, a Bruce Springsteen & The E-Street Band tribute act, who are locally based in Central Scotland...and they were excellent. Its a funny thing with tribute acts (and I've seen quite a few), as some punters are more bothered that they "look" like the original act, and others are more impressed if they "sound" like the original act - me, I could'nt give a hoot what they look like, its the sound I am interested in...and these folks gave a very good account of themselves in that respect.

The Rising Bruce Springsteen E Street Band TributeWhat I was most impressed with was the spread of Springsteen tracks they played in their set, covering all era's of The Boss, and throwing in a number of lesser heard numbers such as "Trapped" and "Fire". You can find out more about The Rising at their website http://www.the-rising-band.co.uk/ and catch them in Glasgow at The Ferry on September 22nd, for their "Boss's Birthday Bash".
