Some fans had been queuing for the sell out show for over 48 hours
Some fans had travelled the length and breadth of the country to see Bruce Springsteen in his first tour since 2013.
The Telegraph caught up with a couple of colourful characters who had arrived at the Ricoh yesterday morning to bag their chance at being at the front of the pit.
Steven and Pauline arrived at the stadium at 7.50am on Thursday morning from Scunthorpe proudly bearing their E Street Fans banners and t-shirts.
The pair are responsible for the creation of the iconic E Street Fans Charity t-shirts.
Pauline told the Telegraph how the shirts were originally printed for their own wear at the 2013 tour, but now thousands of pounds is being raised for charities close to the hearts of the fans. This year the second edition shirt is being raised for the Parkinson's charity Light of Day.
Even The Boss knows of the E Street Fans and read out their salute at his final 2013 European tour date in Kilkenny.
Further down the queue, Chris from Banbury was keeping the fans entertained with his lifesize cut out of Springsteen.
The cutout was bought by his wife and was flown to the UK all the way from Australia.
Our man Paul Smith will be at Ricoh tonight reviewing the concert for the Telegraph. Make sure you check out the website over the weekend as we bring you some fantastic photos of the gig.
