Earning an MBA from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, Tony Ehinger went on to become managing director at Credit Suisse, a financial services company headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland. Prior to retiring, Tony Ehinger specifically worked in low cost index funds, properly diversified portfolios, and retirement investments. In his free time, he enjoys attending live Bruce Springsteen concerts.

One of Springsteen’s most notable performances was when he played in London’s Hyde Park in 2009. He began his set with “London Calling,” a cover song by The Clash, and played 21 more songs. Springsteen then came out for an encore set of five more songs, ending with “Dancing in the Dark.” He turned the performance into an album titled “London Calling: Live in Hyde Park” with special appearances by other musicians.

In 2012, Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band went back to Hyde Park to play a concert. He played a three-hour set for a crowd of 76,000 people and even brought Paul McCartney up on stage for his finale. However, the concert really made headlines when city officials cut off the power during McCartney and Springsteen’s duel rendition of “Twist and Shout” because they were playing past curfew.
