Springsteen pays tribute to storm-damaged NJ coast

6/17/2014 By GENARO C. ARMAS

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- New Jersey rocker Bruce Springsteen says his home state will rebound from the devastation of Superstorm Sandy.

Springsteen and his band played to an adoring crowd at the Jordan Center on the Penn State University campus in State College on Thursday night. He thanked New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for "doing a fine job" of taking care of citizens. He also lauded police, firefighters and other first responders.

He then launched into an extended, heart-wrenching rendition of his song "City in Ruins."

On Wednesday night, Springsteen and the E Street Band performed in the upstate New York town of Rochester, a concert that had been postponed from Tuesday because of travel difficulties caused by the storm.

Springsteen will join NBC's planned benefit concert Friday for victims of the storm.
