Info & Setlist | Venue

Held at the home of Manchester City FC. The second show in England and a 30-song set clocking in at three hours 17 minutes. No tour premieres just as the previous night, however "Prove It All Night" (by sign request) has the 1978 intro and "The Promise" is played solo at the piano. Bruce and Steve sing the duet of Marvin Gaye's "It Takes Two" at the end of "Two Hearts". During "You Can Look (But You Better Not Touch)" Bruce and Steve were joking: Bruce: "You can look between channels 92 and 100 in the hotel." Steve: "Did you look?" Bruce: "Oh no, I looked, but I didn't touch!" It also featured the "Hey you! Get out the car!" line from the original version on the unreleased The Ties That Bind album. Other notable inclusions in the set are "Save My Love", "Cadillac Ranch", the 350th performance of "Land Of Hope And Dreams" and "Twist And Shout", containing a few bars of Richard Berry's "Louie Louie", to close. Bruce did a striptease (down to a shirt!) during "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out" while standing on the piano. Trumpeter Curt Ramm takes a tumble during "Twist And Shout", much to Bruce and Steve's amusement. Bruce: "I've never seen that happen before!" - and at the end - "We can't do no more, somebody's gonna get hurt!" First ever performances in England of "Save My Love" and "The Promise", as well as the 1978 intro to "Prove It All Night". Patti Scialfa is not present.
