Bruce Springsteen has given his thoughts on the situation with San Siro, where he plays concerts when in Milano.

Milan and Inter are planning to build a new stadium in the San Siro area, but the future of the existing stadium is the big controversy in Milano in these days.

Many would like to see San Siro kept in some kind of capacity, regardless of a new arena, and it remains to seen what the City Council and Superintendency decide in respect to the plans of the two clubs.

American musician Bruce Springsteen gave an interview to Corriere della Sera Sette and he was asked about the future of San Siro, where he’s had several concerts during his career:

In Milano a debate has opened: there is a project to demolish San Siro and build a new stadium…
“Really? It would be awful. A pity. It’s a beautiful place. The way it was built is unique: the side furthest from the stage is never too far away. When you play in it, it’s like having a wall of humanity in front of you and a huge enthusiasm comes back to you. Every building has a soul, a spiritual life that you can never take for granted. And as long as they’re safe, I’d like to play inside of them. The new buildings don’t have that soul.”
