Info & Setlist | Venue

It's time to rearrange the set list again; a brief "Deck The Halls" by the horn section kicks it off, leading into "Incident On 57th Street", which is almost like going back to February 1975 - Suki Lahav is replaced by Soozie Tyrell. "Jingle Bell Rock" starts off acoustically country style before the whole assembly turns it into New Orleans Christmas. A new artist enters the stage replacing Garland Jeffreys; Bruce Hornsby does "Spider Fingers" introduced by "O Come, All Ye Faithful" before doing his own "The End Of The Innocence" (co-written with Don Henley) together with Bruce. "You Sexy Thing" is introduced as "one of the great accordion songs, the song that made the accordion famous". "This Time Baby's Gone For Good" replaces "Talk To Me" during Southside Johnny's slot, Nils Lofgren does an acoustic version of "The Star-Spangled Banner" before "If I Should Fall Behind", close to the version Bruce recorded back in 1992 adding a horn part. "So Young And In Love" returns and replaces "The E Street Shuffle". The full E Street Band, minus Roy Bittan and Steven Van Zandt, is again present, and The Alliance Singers join once again. After "My City Of Ruins", Bobby Bandiera performs a solo acoustic "Here Comes The Sun".
