    Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band just don't want to leave the stage.

    Wednesday night's concert at Citizens Bank Park in South Philadelphia lasted nearly 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.

    The New Jersey rock icon could break his own record again in Philadelphia Friday when the E Street Band plays a second night at the home of the Phillies. Some extra tickets to the soldout show were released earlier this week.
