DENVER (AP) — Bruce Springsteen stopped in Denver on Wednesday as part of a nationwide tour promoting his new autobiography “Born to Run.”
An estimated 1,100 people who bought advance tickets lined up at the Tattered Cover Book Store to get a pre-autographed copy of the book and a photo with the Boss. The line extended out of the store and down the street.
The store posted a YouTube video earlier this year urging Springsteen to visit during his book tour. The new incoming co-owner, Len Vlahos, is seen playing guitar and singing “Growin’ Up” while walking through the store.
In the book, Springsteen remembers his childhood in New Jersey, his rise to superstardom and personal struggles that inspired songs such as “Born to Run” and “Thunder Road.”
