Info & Setlist | Venue

"Born In The U.S.A." opens this show on Veteran's Day. Tour premiere for "The Wall", previously played at the Doubletake benefits in 2003. He introduced it as a song he wrote for an old friend from Freehold, a member of The Motifs who died in Vietnam; it's set at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., where the singer comes to pay his annual respects. Bruce Hornsby and Bruce switch off on grand piano on the tour's final "You Can Look (But You Better Not Touch)", while "Matamoros Banks" is dropped for the first and only time of the tour, replaced by the tour's final "Across The Border" with Hornsby playing pump organ and piano and Springsteen on guitar and harmonica. "Drive All Night" makes a welcome return to the set, while "Adam Raised A Cain", "Point Blank", "Downbound Train", "Darkness On The Edge Of Town", and "Blinded By The Light" make their final appearances of the tour. Piano songs are "The Wall", "You Can Look (But You Better Not Touch)", "Drive All Night", and "Jesus Was An Only Son" (plus Hornsby on "Across The Border"). "Born In The U.S.A." and "Johnny 99" are with the bullet mic. "Downbound Train" and "Dream Baby Dream" (as well as Hornsby on "Across The Border") are on pump organ. "Point Blank" is on electric piano. "Growin' Up" is on ukulele. "The New Timer" is on autoharp.
