Info & Setlist | Venue

Opening night of the High Hopes Tour and Springsteen's first show in South Africa. The Specials' "Free Nelson Mandela" opens the 27-song set, but otherwise the show bears a strong resemblance to a Wrecking Ball Tour setlist. Only four songs from High Hopes, including "American Skin (41 Shots)" and "The Ghost Of Tom Joad", the latter with Tom Morello sharing lead vocals, make the show. "We Are Alive" is dedicated to Nelson Mandela and features rewritten lyrics with references to South African history, and the set closes with an acoustic "Thunder Road".

Patti Scialfa is not present.
