Info & Setlist | Venue

Just how could Bruce follow up two wonderful nights in Gothenburg? With the longest show in his performing history, of course. 33 songs over four hours, 4 minutes and 47 seconds, and that doesn't include the five song acoustic pre-set played to the fans that made it into the stadium early, just thank them for following him around Europe. Following the mini-set he spent ten minutes collecting signs and shaking hands before returning to the microphone to say, "Thanks to all you regulars and thanks for making it a lovely summer for us, and we'll see you in a little while!" The main set opens with CCR's "Rockin' All Over The World", last played in 2009 at the final show of the Working On A Dream Tour in Buffalo. "Prove It All Night" with the 1978 introduction follows soon after. Also played, the second "Light Of Day" of the tour (including "Land Of 1000 Dances"), plus the Wrecking Ball Tour debut of "Back In Your Arms". The nine-song encore includes three premieres, "Detroit Medley", the tour's only "I Don't Want To Go Home" (last played at an E Street Band show in 1981), and the tour's sole "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher And Higher". "Twist And Shout" (including "La Bamba") brings the night, and the European leg of the tour, to a conclusion. European debuts of "I Don't Want To Go Home" and "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher And Higher", and first ever performances in Finland of "Leap Of Faith", "For You", "Blinded By The Light", "Rockin' All Over The World", "Loose Ends", "We Take Care Of Our Own", "Wrecking Ball", "Death To My Hometown", "Does This Bus Stop At 82nd Street?", "Be True", "Jack Of All Trades", "Downbound Train", "Light Of Day", "Shackled And Drawn", "Back In Your Arms", "We Are Alive", and the "Detroit Medley".. What a night, what a tour. Patti Scialfa is not present and Jon Landau played guitar on "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher And Higher" and "Twist And Shout".
