The Boss! Harrogate will be hosting a night dedicated to Bruce Springsteen shortly in a fundraiser for Friends of Harrogate Hospital charity.

First released in 1995, Bruce Springsteen Greatest Hits was the American music icon’s first non-live compilation.

With famous Bruce tracks including Born To Run, Born in the USA, Streets of Philadelphia, Nebraska and The River, this classic album has sold more than four million copies in the US alone.

This hit packed ‘best if’ is the focus of the next Harrogate Vinyl Sessions event which will see the vinyl-only event return to its regular home of Starling Independent Bar-Café after raising an incredible £2, 700 for the Friends of Harrogate Hospital last month with a Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells night at All Saints Church in Kirkby Overblow.
