Thread: Why Does Bruce Springsteen Hate The Japanese?

    Default Why Does Bruce Springsteen Hate The Japanese?

    He hasn't played Japan since 1988 and that was part of the Amnesty International tour. He's never spoken of Asians during any of his social justice speeches and he doesn't hire asians either.

    Any idea what's the basis of this neglect and animosity?

    Didn't he play Japan in 1996?

    Japan promoters have visited his tours, but none have been prepared to pay his concert high guarantee.

    Cause he got into a jam back in his hometown? I guess they put a rifle in his hand and sent him off to a foreign land. Now, he doesn't want to play for the yellow man.
    How many headlines can you make out of the 2016 lineup? i.e. "Young monsters moon strangers for pure horror."
