Info & Setlist | Venue

Opening night of the tour includes live debuts of four songs from Born In The U.S.A. ("No Surrender", "I'm On Fire", "Working On The Highway", and "Bobby Jean") and five from Nebraska. The other four songs from Born In The U.S.A. in the set all received their debuts at club appearances prior to the tour. "No Surrender" is one of two full band arrangement versions played on the tour and features a rewritten last verse. This verse is played on all versions of this song during the tour: Now on the streets tonight the lights are growing dim / The walls in my room are closing in / But it's good to see your smiling face / And to hear your voice again / Now we could sleep in the twilight / By the river bed / With a wide open country in our hearts / And these romantic dreams in our heads. "Dancing In The Dark" is played twice for the video shoot, directed by Brian De Palma. Pulled out of the audience during the shoot to dance with Bruce is actress Courteney Cox, later to become a household name as Monica in Friends. Cox is reported to have been paid $350 for her efforts. "Backstreets" include an extended introduction and a brief "Sad Eyes" interlude in the middle. "Detroit Medley" includes "I Hear A Train". Debut performance of The Rolling Stones' "Street Fighting Man".
