TWIST AND SHOUT / I SAW HER STANDING THERE / BORN ON THE BAYOU / (I CAN'T GET NO) SATISFACTION / LIKE A ROLLING STONE / ALL ALONG THE WATCHTOWER

Springsteen attends the third Annual Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame ceremonies with Bob Dylan, The Beatles and The Beach Boys the evening's key Hall Of Fame inductees. This 1988 event is considered to be the most memorable to date due to the number of major stars that turned up. Bruce gives the induction speech for Dylan. Springsteen performed in varying musician/vocalist support roles on all of the above-mentioned tracks. Bruce attended the event with then-wife Julianne Phillips - it was the last time they were seen in public together. The group singing backup on most of the songs, credited on the aforementioned compilation as The Rock Hall Jam Band, includes, among others, Ben E. King, Johnny Moore, Joe Blunt, Clyde Brown, Jeff Beck, George Harrison, Mick Jagger, John and Tom Fogerty, Billy Joel, Bob Dylan, Les Paul, Mary Wilson, Elton John, Arlo Guthrie, Yoko Ono, Ringo Starr, The Beach Boys, Little Richard, Peter Wolf, Neil Young, Paul Simon, Dave Edmunds, Jeff Lynne, Julian Lennon, Sean Lennon, and The World's Most Dangerous Band. Also on stage are various E-Streeters, including Max Weinberg, Little Steven, Clarence Clemons, and Patti Scialfa. Joel sings lead on "I Saw Her Standing There". Fogerty sings lead on "Born On The Bayou". Jagger sings lead on "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction", calling Bruce over to share the microphone. Dylan sings lead on "Like A Rolling Stone", and Harrison and Dylan share vocals on "All Along The Watchtower".

1988-01-24 - EXPO THEATER, FORT MONMOUTH, NJ

No set details known.

Private E Street Band rehearsals for the Tunnel Of Love Express Tour. All rehearsals were conducted at the U.S. Military base in the town of Fort Monmouth. Confusion has surrounded the location of these rehearsals due to the fact that the military base actually encompasses parts of the towns of Eatontown and Oceanport, as well as the town of Fort Monmouth. The base is now closed, and the theater is in Eatontown. But before 2011, the proper address was Expo Theater, Avenue of Memories (Route 537), Fort Monmouth, New Jersey.

TUNNEL OF LOVE / BE TRUE / ADAM RAISED A CAIN / TWO FACES / ALL THAT HEAVEN WILL ALLOW / SEEDS / ROULETTE / COVER ME / BRILLIANT DISGUISE / SPARE PARTS / WAR / BORN IN THE U.S.A. / TOUGHER THAN THE REST / SHE'S THE ONE / YOU CAN LOOK (BUT YOU BETTER NOT TOUCH) / I'M A COWARD / I'M ON FIRE / ONE STEP UP / PART MAN, PART MONKEY / WALK LIKE A MAN / DANCING IN THE DARK / LIGHT OF DAY / BORN TO RUN / HUNGRY HEART / GLORY DAYS / CAN'T HELP FALLING IN LOVE / ROSALITA (COME OUT TONIGHT) / DETROIT MEDLEY

Live debuts of "Tunnel Of Love", "All That Heaven Will Allow", "Roulette", "Spare Parts", "I'm A Coward", "One Step Up", "Part Man, Part Monkey", and "Walk Like A Man", plus the first ever on-tour renditions of "Two Faces", "Brilliant Disguise", "Tougher Than The Rest", and "Light Of Day", along with "Be True", which has had only one other public outing before. E Street Band premiere of the alternative arrangement of "You Can Look (But You Better Not Touch)". This rockabilly style arrangement was included on The Ties That Bind, the unreleased 1979 single album. "Spare Parts" include a highly personal and different introduction story than on later shows – a must-hear. "Part Man, Part Monkey" includes "Love Is Strange" in the outro, as it will throughout the tour. "Walk Like A Man" includes a beautiful instrumental intro, played only once more, two shows later. "Born To Run" is solo acoustic. "Detroit Medley" includes "I Hear A Train", "Sweet Soul Music", and "Shake", and will do so for almost the entire tour when the song is played. "Roulette" and "Cover Me" in the soundcheck are just the instrumental intros, rehearsed a few times each; the first "Part Man, Part Monkey" is just the ending, with the "Love Is Strange" snippet, while the second, full version also includes "Love Is Strange". The final "Walk Like A Man" in the soundcheck is just the intro.

Soundcheck: JUNGLELAND / MAN AT THE TOP / I'M SO LONESOME I COULD CRY

Pre-set: CRYING

TUNNEL OF LOVE / BE TRUE / ADAM RAISED A CAIN / TWO FACES / ALL THAT HEAVEN WILL ALLOW / SEEDS / ROULETTE / COVER ME / BRILLIANT DISGUISE / SPARE PARTS / WAR / BORN IN THE U.S.A. / TOUGHER THAN THE REST / AIN'T GOT YOU - SHE'S THE ONE / YOU CAN LOOK (BUT YOU BETTER NOT TOUCH) / I'M A COWARD / I'M ON FIRE / ONE STEP UP / PART MAN, PART MONKEY / BACKSTREETS / DANCING IN THE DARK / LIGHT OF DAY / BORN TO RUN / HUNGRY HEART / GLORY DAYS / ROSALITA (COME OUT TONIGHT) / HAVE LOVE WILL TRAVEL / TENTH AVENUE FREEZE-OUT / SWEET SOUL MUSIC / RAISE YOUR HAND / LITTLE LATIN LUPE LU / TWIST AND SHOUT

Longest and one of the best of the Tunnel Of Love Express Tour shows. A few show notes, most of which can be also said for all shows this leg: "Two Faces" includes a nice guitar intro, "All That Heaven Will Allow" has a lengthy intro story, "Cover Me" includes "Gimme Shelter" in the outro, "Spare Parts" has the usual intro about love gone bad, and "You Can Look (But You Better Not Touch)" is rearranged much like the rockabilly version contemplated for the unreleased The Ties That Bind album in 1979, but with a story included. "I'm A Coward" has a long intro story and "Part Man, Part Monkey" includes "Love Is Strange" in the outro. Adele Springsteen is invited to dance with Bruce during "Dancing In The Dark". "Born To Run" is solo acoustic. A unique "Little Latin Lupe Lu" is the sole performance for the tour and a first since Boston, March 25, 1977. Audience tape of the soundcheck includes "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" and "Crying". Backstreets Magazine also reports Roy playing a piece of "Jungleland" and Nils singing "Man At The Top". Clarence's very young son "sings" a couple lines after "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry", alongside Bruce singing a snippet of "Boom Boom". Bruce allows a few hundred people in early who had been in line since noon to hear the last song of the soundcheck, Roy Orbison's "Crying".

"Roulette" is dropped for the first time this tour, replaced with "Darkness On The Edge Of Town" which is played for the fourth and final time this tour. "Cover Me" includes "Gimme Shelter" in the outro, "Part Man, Part Monkey" includes "Love Is Strange" in the outro, "Light of Day" includes "Born To Be Wild" in the center section. "Dancing In The Dark" is not played. "Born To Run" is solo acoustic. The soundcheck includes Slim Harpo's "Rainin' In My Heart" (not the Buddy Holly song with the same title), "Big Boss Man" (first recorded by Jimmy Reed but also by Elvis Presley), "Let It Be Me" (The Everly Brothers, also soundchecked in Atlanta in March) with Nils taking lead vocals, "Cathy's Clown" and "Crying In The Rain" (both also The Everly Brothers) and both "Rock And Roll Music" and "Sweet Little Sixteen" by Chuck Berry. The second song of the soundcheck has historically been titled "The Way You Walk", however a little investigation has revealed it to be John Lee Hooker's "Dimples". Perhaps Bruce had considered including the song in the Express Tour set, but instead settled on "Boom Boom" which will be premiered four days after this show in Bloomington, MN.

Premiere of "Cautious Man", and the only known appearance until the Devils & Dust Tour in 2005 - the song was played in the soundchecks earlier. Debut of "Boom Boom". "Two Faces" has a nice guitar intro again. "Spare Parts" does not have an intro story, for a change, but "All That Heaven Will Allow", "You Can Look (But You Better Not Touch)" and "I'm A Coward" all include intro stories, as always. "Cover Me" includes "Gimme Shelter" in the outro and "Part Man, Part Monkey" includes "Love Is Strange" in the outro. "Light Of Day" fades out midway. "Born To Run" is solo acoustic. This show is the source of an urban legend when it was reported that the origins of the song "Boom Boom" being played was a riff played on the bass, followed by all the band spontaneously joining in and playing the song for the first time ever. Well apart from the two soundcheck versions anyway.

RECONSIDER BABY / BOOM BOOM
Incomplete setlist.

Bruce and Nils Lofgren sit and listen to a few songs by the New Orleans Blues Department, a loose collection of local musicians. After the first set guitarist/vocalist Michael Sklar approaches Springsteen and invites him to join the band during the second set. Bruce accepts, and Sklar drives home and returns with a spare Stratocaster and amp. Springsteen then joins the N.O.B.D on Lowell Fulson's "Reconsider Baby". After a break Nils borrows Sklar's guitar for "Boom Boom" and four other unidentified R&B classics. Springsteen returned to the Maple Leaf Bar in 1992 to play with The Iguanas.

"Out In The Street" (in its only 1988 performance) and "The Promised Land" make their tour debuts and "Born To Run" is performed with the full band for the first time on the tour. "Adam Raised A Cain" includes "Hoochie Coochie Man" and "I'm A Man" in the outro. "Cover Me" includes "Gimme Shelter" in the outro. "You Can Look (But You Better Not Touch)" includes the sung "Don't You Touch That Thing" intro. "Dancing In The Dark" includes "Lookin' For A Love" in the outro and "Light Of Day" includes "Land Of 1000 Dances". "Twist And Shout" includes "Having A Party". Oddly, this show was announced by the promoters as a "Concert for Nicaragua" (see ticket stub), which upset Bruce and prompted him to give his infamous German-language speech prior to "Chimes Of Freedom" about "not being here for or against any certain government, but to play rock 'n' roll for (you) East Berliners…in the hope that one day, all barriers will be torn down." A few minutes before the concert started, Bruce had the words translated and written down in phonetic spelling by his personal German driver, George Kerwinski, and the speech originally included the word "walls" instead of "barriers" – this was changed at the proverbial last minute because it was (rightly) considered too delicate by Jon Landau. Kerwinski had to literally climb onstage during the show and tell Bruce to say "barrier". Bruce does his introduction in German while the band plays in the background. Of course, the entire speech was censored in the original East German television and radio broadcasts anyway, although it was shown on various TV news reports in West Germany.

The final Tunnel Of Love Express Tour show. During the intro to "Tunnel of Love", Bruce speaks in Catalan, saying, "Hola Barcelona, ja soc aquí" (Hello Barcelona, I'm finally here). This was important to the audience because these are the exact words ("Ja soc aquí") that Catalonian President Josep Tarradellas said on October 23, 1977, when he returned to Barcelona after 38 years in exile because of Franco's dictatorship in Spain. Once democracy was restored in Spain in 1975, the old Generalitat government functioned again (Catalonia's own autonomic government), and Tarradellas came back to take the presidency again. So Bruce saying those magic words was very exciting, and sure he had some good advice about this before the show. "Adam Raised A Cain" includes "I'm A Man" in the outro. "Cover Me" includes "Gimme Shelter" in the outro. "You Can Look (But You Better Not Touch)" includes the sung "Don't You Touch That Thing" intro. "Dancing In The Dark" includes "Lookin' For A Love" in the outro. "Light Of Day" includes "Land Of 1000 Dances". "Born To Run" is full band once again. "Twist And Shout" includes "Having A Party". First ever performance in Spain of "Working On The Highway". The sleeve for a Spanish promotion-only 7" single of "Tougher Than The Rest" lists this concert with a date of August 4, so the show may have been rescheduled. A typo is perhaps more likely.

First time that Springsteen has played in Africa. Bruce's only performance in Zimbabwe to date. A certain amount of controversy surrounds this show, played at a Chinese-built sports stadium in the Zimbabwean capital. Reports suggest that Zimbabwe issued an estimated 20,000 visas to South Africans, and the end result is that perhaps 80 percent of the crowd is white. Secondly, the local promoter sourced the sound system from South Africa, which is still in the grips of apartheid. The performers discovered this while in India, protested, and as a result the promoter is forced to locate another system from elsewhere. Generally, it could be said that the show is a success, however at midnight (during Springsteen's set) the stadium lights are switched on, compelling thousands of the vast crowd to head for the exits and ensuring that the show closes with a bit of a whimper. Guest artists are Zimbabwean musician Oliver Mtukudzi, Ilanga, and Cde Chinx.

1988-10-14 - ESTADIO MUNDIALISTA MENDOZA, MENDOZA, ARGENTINA

Pre-set: GET UP, STAND UP (with Sting, Peter Gabriel, Tracy Chapman and Youssou N'Dour)

THE RIVER
Incomplete setlist.

"The River" was played at Bruce's first ever appearance in Argentina. Bruce at some point of the show said this to the crowd: "la lucha con coraje de los chilenos y argentinos por la democracia es un ejemplo para el mundo". A translation of this is "The fight with courage from Chile and Argentinos people for the democracy it's an example for all over the world." 30,000 people were at the show, and half of them were from Chile. They crossed the border to see the show. About 1650 policemen were at the show, and checked one by one all the persons who attended. Two Chilean bands recently returned from exile, Los Prisioneros and Inti-Illimani, took part in the show, as did the Mendozino group Markama. A further translation of Springsteen's speech is: "No one knows better than the South Americans how weak are that kind of rights. We fight in order to create one world without Somoza without Pinochet and with no leaders who rule the world with blood from their Countries in their hands. Let's join our voices in order to that the freedom scream will feel strong in America and in all the world."
