Info & Setlist | Venue

Longest show of the tour so far, at 3hrs 20mins. Springsteen's final show at the Spectrum before demolition - he performed to date in the arena 36 times going back to 1973, when he was booed off stage. Born In The U.S.A. full album performed. And at last it's here: "The Price You Pay", last heard in May 1981. "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher And Higher" is a performance for the ages, last played on tour in 1977. After missing the next show, "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher And Higher" will remain a set regular for the remainder of the tour. The tour's only version of The Drifters' "Save The Last Dance For Me" is the final premiere of the night. Vini Lopez guests on drums on "Spirit in the Night". Bruce's mother Adele joins him for a dance during "Dancing In The Dark" while Curt Ramm lends trumpet to "The Price You Pay", "Wrecking Ball", "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher And Higher", "Kitty's Back", "American Land" and "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)" (again with the "Gonna Fly Now" introduction). "American Land" includes a snippet of "Theme From Shaft" in the midsection. Final tour performances for "Cover Me", "Downbound Train", "I'm On Fire", "I'm Goin' Down", and "My Hometown". "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher And Higher" and "Loose Ends" are played by sign request. Patti Scialfa is not present.
