Apparently in a Rollingstone interview?

I don't think that's true...I saw video clips from the interview with Clarence and there was no mention.

Some guy on the BTX board is claims he is playing Born to Run start to finish in DC and Balt, that I'd like to see.  I'm not finding anything to substantiate that though.

Trust me, if Clarence was sitting out a chunk of shows it would be the biggest news on Backstreets and there is no mention.

rolling stone had a side-bar about bruce's upcoming tour, and the fact that he'll be playing BtR at several shows.  didn't mention which ones, but he is doing it.  i have a couple of RS's in my suitcase, i'll see if i can find the issue tonight.

It is in the Colbert issue of Rolling Stone.  It also mentions how the Pixies, and Devo are doing full albums.  They made it sound like he would play the album at every show.

This is where I heard it...
http://www.howardstern.com/rundown.hs?j=p&d=1253678400
The link to the story reads "Clarence Clemons on Hiatus from E Street Band", but the story itself is titled "E Street?s Clarence Clemons: ?This Is the Best the Band?s Ever Been? , with no mention of any hiatus.

Yes they played BtR in Chicago and were to do it in Nashville as well but  that show got postponed I can only assume he'll still do it there.

Some guy on BTX claimed that he had info from LiveNation that it would happen in DC and Bal but so far pure rumor...

he played born to run the last time he played verizon a few months ago as the closer.  i almost came.  the fan participation and the electric vibe running through the crowd as they chant every lyric and bounce heads/bodies to every riff is nothing like i have ever seen.

but my favourite moment was when he came out on stage at the start . . . the crowd goes wild . . . and i stand (as well as everybody else around me) to applaud and show my respect . . . and the old bitchy woman behind me asks me, "would you mind sitting down?"

Backstreets.com has on it's news page that DC and Balt Born to Run will be played front to back.  That's enough of an official announcement for me to believe it.  I'll probably go to both shows.
