PHILADELPHIA — Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band just don’t want to leave the stage.

Wednesday night’s concert at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia lasted four hours, four minutes, breaking the previous record for the group’s longest U.S. show set last week.

Philadelphia Daily News sports statistician and Springsteen fan Bob Vetrone Jr. clocked the show at four hours, three minutes, 46 seconds.

The band played four hours Aug. 30 at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

The Boss’ longest show in the world was four hours, six minutes, in Helsinki, Finland, in 2012.

Springsteen’s 75-show U.S. and European The River Tour wraps up with a show in Foxborough, Massachusetts, on Sept. 14.

Foxborough officials voted last week to extend its concert curfew by 15 minutes to 11:30 p.m. for Springsteen.
