On 25 September we saw our new baby get born: the very first of our ‘Spotlight On’-evenings took place in Amstelveen’s local venue P60. And that spotlight was aimed at the legendary Bruce Springsteen, who turned 70 just two days earlier.

Together with a selection of the Boss’ biggest fans we celebrated The Big 70. We Speak Music hosted a tailor made Springsteen quiz (including that now infamous Stressed Out finale) in which we awarded the Ultimate Fan Award.

Besides the quiz, music archeologist Marc Stakenburg gave a presentation about his special ‘music trail’ to New Jersey, discovering all those Springsteen-landmarks. On top of that, Dutch fan club Be True-chairman Jos Westenberg shared a few of his most special personal stories about The Boss. Including meeting the man himself at a private party in New Jersey.

Thanks to everyone who joined this special evening. We look forward to seeing you again at our next Spotlight On events: The Rolling Stones in Tiel or Queen in Hengelo.

And then of course, there’s some pictures.
