FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts town has decided to extend its concert curfew by 15 minutes, just for Bruce Springsteen.

The Sun Chronicle ( ) reports that the Foxborough board of selectmen voted to extend the concert curfew for the rocker's Sept. 14 show at Gillette Stadium to 11:30 p.m. The typical curfew for weeknight concerts is 11:15 p.m.

The stadium's director of external affairs says Springsteen has played Gillette twice before with no issues and he's been playing 3 ½- to four-hour sets on his latest tour. Foxborough is his last stop.

And if Springsteen plays past 11:30? Selectman Chris Mitchell notes that stadium concert curfews aren't set by any town law.

Not everyone agrees. Board member Ginny Coppola didn't attend the meeting but said in a written statement that she opposed extending curfew.
