1990-02-12 - GREENACRES, BEVERLY HILLS, CA

THE RIVER / EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE / BIG YELLOW TAXI

Setlist details are incomplete. Bruce's only performance of Joni Mitchell's "Big Yellow Taxi" and first ever performance in the U.S. of "Every Breath You Take". A private dinner-concert held on the beautiful estate of movie producer and investor Ted Field. This was a fundraiser for the Rainforest Foundation's fight to preserve the Amazon ecosystem, billed as "An Evening In Brazil". About 800 guests attended (the cream of Hollywood's music/movie "A" list), each donating/paying $5,000 a head for the privilege. The event raised about one million dollars. It was Sting who organized getting Springsteen and the others to participate in the all-star group. Bruce Hornsby, a member of the "Allstars" lineup, has jokingly commented: "It was quite a band. It was a hilarious night – actually it was basically a bunch of (band) leaders playing sidemen and butchering each others tunes. We rehearsed for two days though – we really tried to get it right."

No circulating audio.

1990-11-16 - SHRINE AUDITORIUM, LOS ANGELES, CA

Soundcheck: DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN (multiple takes) / REASON TO BELIEVE (multiple takes)

BRILLIANT DISGUISE / DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN / MANSION ON THE HILL / REASON TO BELIEVE / RED HEADED WOMAN / 57 CHANNELS (AND NOTHIN' ON) / MY FATHER'S HOUSE / TENTH AVENUE FREEZE-OUT / ATLANTIC CITY / WILD BILLY'S CIRCUS STORY / NEBRASKA / WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT / THUNDER ROAD / MY HOMETOWN / REAL WORLD / HIGHWAY 61 REVISITED (with Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt) / ACROSS THE BORDERLINE (with Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt)

First of two acoustic concerts to benefit the Christic Institute. The Institute was a public interest law firm, founded in 1980. A stunning performance by Springsteen, including world premieres of "Red Headed Woman", "57 Channels (And Nothin' On)", "When The Lights Go Out" (all on the guitar) and "Real World" on the piano. Furthermore we get first time acoustic guitar versions of "Brilliant Disguise", "Darkness On The Edge Of Town", "Mansion On The Hill", "Reason To Believe", "My Father's House", "Atlantic City", "Wild Billy's Circus Story" (no tuba from Gary this time), and "Nebraska" (of course to follow "Wild Billy's Circus Story" – "Nebraska's our next stop"). "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out" is performed with Bruce alone on the piano for the first time. "Thunder Road" returns to the version last seen on the first leg of the Born To Run tour (with Bruce, not Roy Bittan on the piano). "My Hometown" gets its second acoustic hearing, this time on the piano, and not on the guitar as in 1988 on the S.O.S. Racism show. Highlight is the magnificent solo piano "Real World" - an inspired performance and one of Bruce's greatest. For encores Bonnie Raitt and Jackson Browne joins in on "Highway 61 Revisited" (Bruce on harmonica, Jackson on acoustic guitar, and Bonnie on tambourine) and "Across The Borderline" (previously performed on the Tunnel Of Love Tour) – this time with Jackson on the piano and Bonnie on the slide guitar – beautiful as always.
