Info & Setlist | Venue

First night of four in Los Angeles, with Bruce and the band the first performers at the brand-new Staples Center. 24-song set opens with "My Love Will Not Let You Down" after the "Meeting In The Town Tonight" introduction, and also includes "You Can Look (But You Better Not Touch)". "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out" includes "It's All Right", "Take Me To The River", and "Red Headed Woman". "Born In The U.S.A." is the acoustic version. "Light Of Day" includes a snippet of "California Sun", with a very funny reference to plastic surgery, and "I've Been Everywhere", plus Steve playing a snippet of "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" in the midsection. From a fan present, "I was behind the stage and saw Danny's set list and they dropped out "Brilliant Disguise" after "Working On The Highway" and before "The Ghost Of Tom Joad". It was indented on the list so maybe it was there in case they had enough time. The soundchecked "Pink Cadillac" intro was the instrumental, mostly Nils Lofgren on guitar and Max Weinberg on drums, that was played during the '85 stadium tour. Bruce appeared for "Prove It All Night" and sang the hell out of it. The intro to "My Love Will Not Let You Down" was worked on a lot, a real soulful treatment that really added to the show. "The Ghost of Tom Joad" was the full band and excellent. "Born In The U.S.A." was the standard acoustic version.
