Info & Setlist | Venue

Bruce, Patti Scialfa, Lisa Lowell, Soozie Tyrell, Southside Johnny, Garry Tallent, and Nils Lofgren take care of the warming up slot while they wait for Max and his band to come from New York on the fast ferry. A nice acoustic set. "Jingle Bells" introduces the official part of the evening by The Max Weinberg 7's horn section. "For You" is performed by Bruce alone on the piano. Garry and Soozie joins Bruce for an acoustic "Blue Christmas". "Powerhouse" is played as a Max Weinberg 7 showpiece prior to a duet between Bruce and Jimmy Vivino on "Run Rudolph Run". "The E Street Shuffle" includes all horn parts and a snippet of "Move On Up" in the end-part. "Kitty's Back" includes the horns again. "Rose" and "As Long As I (Can Be With You)" are Patti's solo slots. Southside, Little Steven, and Bobby Bandiera shows up for "This Time It's For Real", "Until The Good Is Gone" with Steve on lead and "All I Needed Was You" with Southside, Bruce and Steve sharing the lead. Nils does "Shine Silently" before Bruce drives home "Merry Christmas Baby" with a full horn backing and return to his youth with a horn-filled "So Young And In Love". "Roll Of The Dice" and "Bobby Jean" are familiar versions before a great "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" ends the main set. "My City Of Ruins" also gets the horn-treatment including a beautiful muted trumpet solo – Great!. "I Don't Want To Go Home" includes Southside, Steve and Bruce on lead vocals, "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)" also get the horn section treatment, before "Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town" rounds off the evening. All this with only two days of rehearsals – well done, lads.
