Info & Setlist | Venue

Opening night of a six-show stand over eight nights at Wembley Arena is a 28-song set that opens with "Born To Run". First ever Springsteen performance of "Trapped", played in an arrangement that is wildly different to Jimmy Cliff's original. "Trapped" was also soundchecked, with Bruce and the band spending some time working on the instrumentation. Roy plays "Once Upon A Time In The West" as a prelude to "Badlands". Clarence sings the opening lines to Lloyd Price's "Stagger Lee" as an introduction to "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)", which also includes "Sweet Soul Music" during the band introductions. "Detroit Medley" features the emergency announcement / "when me and the Big Man do this" schtick. "Prove It All Night" is dropped for the first time on the tour. Show was rescheduled from March 19.
