Info & Setlist | Venue

As far as Bruce knew at the time, this was the final night of the tour, which explains his choice to open the 24-song set with the premiere of the Rolling Stones' "The Last Time", one of only three known versions outside of clubs. It would return for the actual tour-closer in Richfield, OH three months later. In the end, another leg was added following a month's break. The lights were turned off when Bruce and Clarence jumped into the crowd during "Spirit In The Night" before Bruce reappeared standing on chair in the middle of the audience waving a flashlight over his head. Set also includes the last known "It's My Life", and the last "Kitty's Back" of the tour. The latter will not be played again until the Christmas show of December 17, 2000. Final tour performance for "Incident On 57th Street" as well, which transitions straight into "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight". Plenty of dedications; "Incident On 57th Street" for lighting director Marc Brickman, "Meeting Across The River" (one of only five for the tour) for a fan in the crowd that threw Bruce a hat, a rare "For You" for Beth, and "Fire" for Obie. "Thunder Road" (with a distinct piano introduction) is dedicated to a young fan that Bruce met the night before who had just started his own band in high school. The show was added after the first night in Atlanta was rescheduled from June to September. Billboard magazine reported an attendance of 3,822 (a sellout) and gross receipts of $32,487.
