"I saw Bruce at the Orphan Theater in Memphis during his "Born to Run" Tour. I was fortunate to go Back Stage and meet him face to face and sip on Heiniken with him. He was so natural, polite and geniune. I have always respected his realness. I hate that I missed his show at the Orphan in Memhis before the City of Memphis decided to destroy it a few years ago.
I assume she means the Orpheum, but was there an Orphan somewhere? I'd always thought The Auditorium in 1976 was first Springsteen Memphis performance since he had cancelled at Lafayette's in 1975 to finish "Born To Run." And the Orpheum didn't re-open until 1979, right? I know he hasn't played there, even before "the City of Memphis decided to destroy it a few years ago."
