Info & Setlist | Venue

Bruce and band take the stage to "In The Midnight Hour" for their last show of three at MetLife Stadium, and the final stadium show of 2012. The set (delayed by two hours due to thunderstorms passing over the stadium) sees four tour premieres: "Cynthia", "Meeting Across The River", and the tour's lone performances of "In The Midnight Hour" (last played with the E Street Band at the 1980 New Year's Eve show at Nassau Coliseum) and "Into The Fire". Just like the night before, Gary U.S. Bonds joins the band for "Jolé Blon" and the tour's final "This Little Girl". A full band tour premiere is for "Janey, Don't You Lose Heart", after which Steve teases a brief snippet of "Birthday". "My City Of Ruins includes "Twistin' The Night Away". At midnight the crowd sang "Happy Birthday To You" to Bruce and prior to "Twist And Shout" Bruce cut a cake (delivered by Bruce's mom Adele, his oldest sister Ginny, Patti Scialfa's mother - introducing whom Bruce sings a line from Allen Toussaint's "Mother-In-Law" - and brother, plus Maureen Van Zandt) for his 63rd birthday, and shared it with fans in the pit, who once again sang "Happy Birthday". Patti Scialfa is not present.
