Bruce Springsteen (left), Max Weinberg, and the E Street Band played for 4 hours, three minutes and 43 seconds, Springsteen's longest show ever in the U.S., on Wednesday night at Citizens Bank Park. They play again Friday night.

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.

4 hours, 3 minutes, 46 seconds ... First note to last note ...

Yes. My other buddy had a few seconds longer, but he isn't BoopStats!!!

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?
