“The Boss” is getting up there in age, but he “can’t imagine” retiring, he told Howard Stern during an interview on Halloween 2022.
“I mean, if I got to a point where I was incapacitated or something,” he said. “…We used to do five sets a night. We used to play five hours a night. Now, if I play two, people are going to be disappointed. I gotta play at least three,” he said.
