Info & Setlist | Venue

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band play the Apollo Theater to celebrate the 10th anniversary of SiriusXM Radio, the satellite network that also broadcasts E Street Radio. Tickets were only available for SiriusXM subscribers contest winners. The show kicks off at 8:20pm and is broadcast live on E Street Radio. "My City Of Ruins" features band introductions, including Patti singing a snippet of "People Get Ready". Bruce sings a line from "Sexy And I Know It" during the intro to "The E Street Shuffle". "Mansion On The Hill" is played acoustically on guitar and harmonica, with Patti on harmony vocals and Soozie on fiddle. First ever performance of The Temptations' 1964 hit "The Way You Do the Things You Do", played in tribute (along with Wilson Pickett's "634-5789 (Soulsville, U.S.A.)", which sees Bruce up on the balcony of the theatre) to all the soul legends who have performed on stage at Harlem's Apollo Theater. "Land Of Hope And Dreams" is in a new live arrangement in the style of the Wrecking Ball version, beginning with a choral "this train" introduction and concluding with "People Get Ready", including Curtis Mayfield's original lyric "don't need no ticket / you just thank the Lord." There's also a moving tribute to Clarence Clemons during "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out", with the band pausing after "the big man joined the band" for a wave of applause, before crashing back into the song. Michelle Moore (who sings on the album) provides the "rap" vocals for "Rocky Ground". Live premieres for "Shackled And Drawn", "We Are Alive", and "Rocky Ground".
