Info & Setlist | Venue

Final show of the tour, the longest at 34 songs and nearly three-and-a-half hours. Bruce's first album Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J. is performed in its entirety, dedicated to Mike Appel. During "Growin' Up" Bruce tells the story of how he met Clarence, and they re-create the Born To Run album cover pose on stage - a wonderful moment. "For You" is of course full band. "American Land" includes a snippet of "Theme From Shaft" in the midsection. "Merry Christmas Baby", "Hang Up My Rock And Roll Shoes", and "Boom Boom" are played by sign request. Curt Ramm guests on "Wrecking Ball", the two Christmas songs, "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out", "American Land" and "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher And Higher". Willie Nile also joins in for "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher And Higher". Tour premieres are "Mary Queen Of Arkansas", a first-ever E Street Band "The Angel" (making its U.S. debut and featuring Joyce Hammann on viola), world premiere of The River-outtake "Restless Nights" (at birthday boy Steven Van Zandt's request), "Merry Christmas Baby", "Hang Up My Rock And Roll Shoes" and "I'll Work For Your Love". "Born To Run" and "American Land" are both played, making them the two songs to be performed at every show on the tour. Patti Scialfa is not present.
