Bruce Fans Get The Point

Fans of BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, who descended upon the ASBURY PARK CONVENTION HALL this week hoping to hear the BOSS and the E STREET BAND rehearse for their upcoming tour, instead got The Point. That'd be MILLENNIUM Hot AC WJLK (94.3 THE POINT)/ASBURY PARK.
For years, fans have gathered outside of the hall, a popular SPRINGSTEEN rehearsal venue, where they were able to hear the band through the walls. In an apparent attempt to keep the fans from hearing the practice sessions, speakers were set up outside of the hall broadcasting 94.3 THE POINT, effectively drowning out the band.
One disappointed fan told the ASBURY PARK PRESS, "I don't think it's fair. We're his true fans, we're the same people who are always out here." Another fan was more understanding, saying, "We're disappointed, but we respect his privacy."
