The Rising

The T-shirt for Bruce Springsteen’s “The Rising” album and tour. Most of the songs were written in response to the September 11 attacks.

The sky was falling and streaked with blood
I heard you calling me then you disappeared into the dust
Up the stairs, into the fire
Up the stairs, into the fire
I need your kiss, but love and duty called you someplace higher
Somewhere up the stairs into the fire

May your strength give us strength
May your faith give us faith
May your hope give us hope
May your love give us love

From “Into the Fire”

The 2002-2003 The Rising Tour never made it to Stockholm (the only Swedish venue was Gothenburg), but some nice person who did see the concert gave me this T-shirt.

I did see his 1988 concert here in Stockholm, at the Olympic Stadium. Got a T-shirt then, which eventually wore out and is long gone.
