Info & Setlist | Venue

First of two concerts at the arena previously known as the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy, where Springsteen played thirteen shows between 1981 and 2012. Set opens with a solo piano "Incident On 57th Street" before the tour premiere of "Reason To Believe", the bullet microphone arrangement first seen on the Magic Tour. The set features fifteen songs from The River, the most ever to date at a show in Europe. Tour premieres also of "Into The Fire" and a solo acoustic "Nebraska". The former was last played September 22, 2012 at MetLife Stadium, while the latter has only been played one other time at an E Street Band show since 1985. Elliott Murphy and his son Gaspard joined Bruce on stage for "Born To Run" on guitar and backing vocals. The PA system and lighting failed during "Ramrod", so the band finished the song unamplified after taking a lap around the pit. While waiting for the power to return Bruce sat on the stage autographing signs while the crowd clapped and sang, and wrote a sign of his own saying "5 min break". The power returned shortly after, and "Ramrod" was resumed and completed: "Stevie! what time is it?, is it quittin' time?, is it fuse blowing time?, then what time is it!!?" The show closes with a solo acoustic performance of "Thunder Road". First ever performances in France for "Jackson Cage", "Crush On You", "I'm A Rocker", "Drive All Night", and "Shout".
