Even after four decades entertaining packed crowds, "The Boss" keeps finding ways to earn his title. Wednesday night at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Bruce Springsteen - naturally, along with the E Street Band - broke his own record for the longest concert ever in the United States by playing a show that clocked in at 4 hours, 3 minutes, 36 seconds.

Already notorious for his high-energy, lengthy shows, Bruce has been pushing himself a little further recently, having just set the previous record for U.S. concert length with a four hour show Aug. 30 at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. The official time for the record-breaking Philadelphia show Wednesday was clocked by Philadelphia Daily News sports statistician and Boss fan Bob Vetrone Jr.

Bruce and the E Street Band have a chance to break their own record yet again before the 75-show "River Tour" wraps up in Foxborough, MA on September 14th.
