Info & Setlist | Venue

Opening night of The River Tour 2016, at which each show on the opening U.S. leg will feature a complete performance of The River album, in sequence. The 34-song set opens with "Meet Me In The City". "I Wanna Marry You" includes the "Here She Comes Walkin'" introduction, and "Point Blank" features the same piano introduction that was played on the River Tour in 1980 and 1981. The encores open with "Rebel Rebel", as tribute to David Bowie who died on January 10, 2016 at the age of 69. Springsteen first met Bowie in November 1974, after catching a Greyhound bus from Asbury Park to Philadelphia. Bowie was in the studio at the time, recording Young Americans, and would go on to record covers of "It's Hard To Be A Saint In The City" and "Growin' Up". "Shout" includes a snippet of "Take Me To The River" in the midsection.
