Info & Setlist | Venue

Last show in Australia and Bruce pulls out all the stops with a thirty-song, three-hour-43-minute set. Three tour premieres open the show starting with the first ever Springsteen rendition of the Bee Gees' "Stayin' Alive". The Gibbs emigrated to Australia and settled near Brisbane in the late 1950s. "It's Hard To Be A Saint In The City", "Does This Bus Stop At 82nd Street?" and "Growin' Up", including an intro story about growing up and superheroes, follow, all audibled. Following thereafter are sign request performances of "You Can Look (But You Better Not Touch)", "Sherry Darling", "Save My Love", and only the 26th performance of "Fade Away", played "for Steve". Bruce allowed the crowd to decide how to continue, more signs or something special. They selected the latter, and it was indeed something special - a complete album performance of The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle for only the second time. The Cooper + Koo string section (Natalya Bing, Nadia Buck, Yena Choi, Susannah Clark, Sally Cooper, Francesca Hiew, Airlie Koo, and Caitlin Lacy, all on violin) joins the band for "Stayin' Alive" and "New York City Serenade". By comparison the rest of the set is standard fare, apart from Eddie Vedder guesting on "Highway To Hell". The acoustic "Thunder Road" brings Springsteen's Australian Tour to a conclusion. Only tour appearances for "It's Hard To Be A Saint In The City", "Does This Bus Stop At 82nd Street", "Fade Away", "Wild Billy's Circus Story", "Incident On 57th Street", and "New York City Serenade", plus the final tour versions of "4th Of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)" and "Kitty's Back". First ever performances in Australia for "Stayin' Alive", "It's Hard To Be A Saint In The City", "You Can Look (But You Better Not Touch)", "Fade Away", "Wild Billy's Circus Story", and "New York City Serenade". Over the fifteen shows in South Africa and Australia Bruce and the band played a total of 126 songs. Patti Scialfa is not present.
