Almost four years ago, Youth Journalism International rock reviewer Luke Pearson caught the Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band “Magic” tour when it stopped in Hartford, Connecticut.
His favorite part of the show, Pearson said, was a duet between Springsteen and his wife, singer Patti Scialfa. They sounded, he said, like “outlaw lovers.”
Today the rock and roll couple celebrate 20 years of marriage. Congrats to them and to Pearson, for a review and two related pieces, linked below, that stand the test of time:

”Play it as it lays”
HARTFORD, Conn. – Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are back. After four years apart, the band had one goal in mind: to rock the stage in Hartford.
The band’s Oct. 2 performance at the Hartford Civic Center premiered their new hit album, Magic, and opened their new tour.
Bruce is back and better than ever. Before the show, the impatient fans chanted, “Bruuuuuuce!”
Once the lights came down, the band charged into “Radio Nowhere,” the first single off Magic.
Then for fans, instinct took over and the crowd roared with excitement at the thrilling opener.
