Bruce Springsteen played his longest show ever on U.S. soil on Wednesday night at Citizens Bank Park (read Dan DeLuca's review of the show). The concert clocked in at 4 hours, three minutes and 43 seconds, according to our very own Bob Vetrone Jr., who timed the show from opening to closing note.

Other sources, including NJ.com Springsteen blogger Stan Goldstein and fan site Blogness on the Edge of Town, confirmed the record:

The previous record of 4 hours was set at MetLife Stadium on August 30. His longest show to date was 4:06 in Helsinki in 2012

Springsteen will be back at CBP on Friday. Can he make it to 4:07?
