Info & Setlist | Venue

Early-birds in the LA Sports Arena get an unexpected treat - an hour before the show Bruce appears on stage with a party (Bruce claimed they were his relatives, but we're not so sure!) and plays an acoustic version of "For You". This kind of event isn't unprecedented - Paris in 2003, for example. The three-hour set opens with "No Surrender", the first of two tour premieres from Born In The U.S.A. - "Bobby Jean" is the other. The "this train" introduction is dropped from "Land Of Hope And Dreams" for the second and final time of the first American leg. Tom Morello joins Bruce on stage for the same songs as the previous night, plus "Land of Hope And Dreams". Springsteen's guitar tech Kevin Buell is honoured on the occasion of his 1000th show - Bruce lures him to the front of the stage with a fake guitar failure. "My City Of Ruins" includes "People Get Ready".
