Info & Setlist | Venue

First show of "Human Rights Now!", a worldwide tour to raise awareness of both the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the work of Amnesty International. Other than Springsteen, the concerts feature Sting, Peter Gabriel, Tracy Chapman, and Youssou N'Dour, plus guest performers from each of the countries where the concerts are held. The days proceedings begin at around 4pm with a stripped-down version of "Get Up, Stand Up" performed by Springsteen, Gabriel, Chapman, Sting and N'Dour - the first ever Springsteen performance of the song. It is uncertain (but assumed) whether all the shows on the tour featured this opening - please get in touch if you know more. After the introduction and sets by the other performers, Springsteen and the E Street Band play a 15-song set, featuring the first (and only) "Spare Parts" without the horns and the familiar piano/spoken introduction. "Born To Run" is the full band version, as it will be throughout the tour. "Chimes Of Freedom" and a full-band "Get Up, Stand Up" close the show.
