FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - Gillette Stadium has paid a more than $22,000 fine for allowing Bruce Springsteen to break the town of Foxborough’s concert curfew.

The Massachusetts town made national news when it extended its weeknight concert curfew for The Boss’ Sept. 14 show by 15 minutes from 11:15 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.

Yet according to town officials, Springsteen didn’t play his last note until 11:54 p.m. - four hours and one minute after the show started.

Town Manager Bill Keegan tells The Sun Chronicle (https://bit.ly/2d3hoCs ) that without even being asked, the Kraft Group sent the town a check for $22,429 to cover the fine.

Keegan says there was also one noise complaint, although it came early in the show. The Foxborough concert was the last on Springsteen’s tour.
