Info & Setlist | Venue

The final Tunnel Of Love Express Tour show. During the intro to "Tunnel of Love", Bruce speaks in Catalan, saying, "Hola Barcelona, ja soc aquí" (Hello Barcelona, I'm finally here). This was important to the audience because these are the exact words ("Ja soc aquí") that Catalonian President Josep Tarradellas said on October 23, 1977, when he returned to Barcelona after 38 years in exile because of Franco's dictatorship in Spain. Once democracy was restored in Spain in 1975, the old Generalitat government functioned again (Catalonia's own autonomic government), and Tarradellas came back to take the presidency again. So Bruce saying those magic words was very exciting, and sure he had some good advice about this before the show. "Adam Raised A Cain" includes "I'm A Man" in the outro. "Cover Me" includes "Gimme Shelter" in the outro. "You Can Look (But You Better Not Touch)" includes the sung "Don't You Touch That Thing" intro. "Dancing In The Dark" includes "Lookin' For A Love" in the outro. "Light Of Day" includes "Land Of 1000 Dances". "Born To Run" is full band once again. "Twist And Shout" includes "Having A Party". First ever performance in Spain of "Working On The Highway". The sleeve for a Spanish promotion-only 7" single of "Tougher Than The Rest" lists this concert with a date of August 4, so the show may have been rescheduled. A typo is perhaps more likely.
