Info & Setlist | Venue

Outstanding show features the first 1980 version of "Rendezvous" and an emotional "Twist And Shout" the day after John Lennon had been shot dead. Bruce opens the show with a spoken tribute: "I'd just like to say one thing….I appreciate it….and it's a hard night to come out and play tonight when so much has been lost….the first record…the first record that I ever learned was a record called 'Twist and Shout' (cheers)…..and if it wasn't….if it wasn't for John Lennon, we'd all be in some place very different tonight (cheers)…. it's….it's an unreasonable… world and you have to live with a lot of things that are just unlivable …. and….it's a hard thing to come out and play but there's just nothing else you can do." "The Price You Pay" is full-band. Roy plays the piano intro before "The River" and "Once Upon A Time In The West" as a bridge between that song and "Badlands". Clarence sings the opening lines to "Stagger Lee" as an introduction to "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)". "Detroit Medley" includes "I Hear A Train".
