Video Post: Santa Claus is Comin'


According to my concert list, I've seen Bruce perform "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town" live only 3 times, the first during one of the Labor Day weekend shows at Giants Stadium in 1985. Stevie was with the band that weekend, and at that time, I never thought I'd experience the song live. My best friend and I had driven from Wisconsin to NJ without concert tickets. Those were the days, thanks "Men in Black" for giving two young women tickets 2 nights in a row.


With the holiday season upon us, here's a collection of videos of Bruce performing holiday songs. I hope 2023 brings fresh memories of these songs being performed live.
