|About Bruce Springsteen|
|Roger Friedman of Fox News reports that a source told him that when Tipper Gore tried to get free tickets to a Bruce Springsteen show, she was informed that even paid admission tickets would be hard to come by. "'They wound up being offered four,' says a source. 'But when they were asked to pay $75 apiece, they said forget it.'" . . . "A Gore spokesman disputed the report as inaccurate, and denied Mrs. Gore tried to score free tickets."
