“The Dump That Jumps!”, the affectionate nickname Bruce Springsteen gave the 56-year-old Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena was prophetic as over 45,000 die-hard fans recently celebrated with three memorable concerts from “The River” tour. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band gave sold-out, jam-packed performances at the Sports Arena on March 15, 17 and 19. The first two shows lasted well over 3 hours, and almost 4 hours on the third night, lasting just 5 minutes short of midnight.
The Los Angeles Times wrote about the March 19th performance which rocked and rolled the Sports Arena to its very foundation and, is the last rock ‘n’ roll concert scheduled before the iconic Los Angeles landmark closes its doors forever.
The three March 2016 concerts marked 34 performances by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band in the Sports Arena since 1980 and showed why Springsteen also called it “the joint that don’t disappoint!”
