Info & Setlist | Venue

First ever Springsteen performance of Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Run Through The Jungle", which opens the show to stunning effect. Perhaps more of an adaptation than a cover, with an ethereal arrangement, lyrical variations throughout and even extra verses, presumably penned by Springsteen:

Well now the land's on fire
It's written in blood in the sky
Better load shotguns out of the trunk
The city's burning tonight
Better wake up, look out your window
I see the tide is turning
'Cause out across the cornfield tonight
I see crosses burning

European debut of "I'm A Rocker" and the first ever performances in the Netherlands of "Factory", "Fire", and "Racing In The Street". KRO Radio conduct a ten-minute phone interview with Steven Van Zandt for De Noen Show.
