Info & Setlist | Venue

Springsteen's final show in South Africa is a 31-song performance, lasting three hours and twenty minutes. Bruce appears on stage while the stadium is filling to entertain the early-birds with a three-song solo acoustic set that includes "I'll Work For Your Love". Pro-shot video of that song and "Growin' Up" is subsequently posted on Springsteen's YouTube channel. Some three-and-a-half hours later the main set opens with the tour's final "Free Nelson Mandela" and is followed by "Land Of Hope And Dreams", hardly surprising considering the close links the FNB Stadium has with Mandela. Five tour premieres make their South African debuts (plus two more in the pre-set), including "Cadillac Ranch" and by request, "I'm On Fire". Bruce's microphone fails at the start of "The Ghost Of Tom Joad", resulting in a nice two-minute guitar improvisation before he continues the song. Rain falls during the show, prompting the encore opener, the tour's only "Who'll Stop The Rain". Show closes with a solo acoustic "Thunder Road". Patti Scialfa is not present.
