Music Festival Madness
What: Day three of March Madness Music Festival
Where: Reunion Park
The 411: Mother Nature tested the fortitude of North Texas Music Fans on April 6, the final day of the March Madness Music Festival that started in Reunion Park on April 4 (to clear skies, of course). Sunday afternoon's lineup included Texas favorite Pat Green and Fun, who seemed undeterred by the rain. The weather may have scared off some from coming to this free concert, but attendees made the most of it, with rain ponchos and other makeshift gear. And beer.
The biggest draw, of course, was Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. (Springsteen hasn't performed in Dallas since 2008.) They walked onto the stage to the Harlem Globetrotters theme song, with Springsteen holding a basketball. After a couple of dribbles, he quipped, "This has something to do with basketball, am I right?" Then they opened with a rendition of Van Halen's "Jump."
