Bruce Springsteen Is Not Above Dallas Selfie Culture.
It was one of the funnier moments to go down during Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band’s free Sunday night show that closed out the weekend-long March Madness Music Festival at Reunion Park: After having pulled nearly two dozen female crowd members onto the stage to dance with him during “Dancing In The Dark,” cell phone after cell phone was thrust in Springsteens face. Each and every one of these fans — as, for better or worse, is now the cultural norm — attempted to take a selfie with the performer.
For a moment, Springsteen obliged. Actually, for a few moments, really. Before long, though, he’s had enough. Bemoaned The Boss before finally refusing the last handful of requests: “Selfie, selfie, selfie, selfie…”
But it seems that Springsteen isn’t above the occasional selfie shot himself, either. Yesterday, The Boss posted to his official Instagram account a selfie that he’d taken of himself in front of one of the newer and cooler murals in town — a Ponchaveli-painted JFK mural that went up late last year along Lamar Street in the Cedars, not too far from the Gilley’s complex.
Anyway, check it out:
So too, one imagines, are the selfie-takers from the Sunday show, who suddenly don’t seem like such horrible people any longer.
Stars: They’re just like us!
