Info & Setlist | Venue

Just like the first night, Bruce opens the set with "New York City Serenade" accompanied by a string section. It is the first time that the song has been played at consecutive shows since 1975. What follows is an almost four-hour show, with it's 3:59 the second longest show ever and breaking the US record set at the previous show. Tom Morello, currently on tour in New Jersey, joins the band on stage for "Death To My Hometown", "American Skin (41 Shots)", "The Ghost Of Tom Joad", and "Badlands". "Night" is played for the 41st anniversary of Born To Run, released on this date in 1975. "My City Of Ruins" is dedicated to the Italian people hit by the earthquake earlier this week and features a new speech in the midsection. "Thunder Road" is the full-band version. Once again the set ends with "Jersey Girl", which included a marriage proposal. "What's going on down there?" said Springsteen in reference to a commotion to his left. "What are you doing. Don't do it down there, do it it up here." "Love is in the room tonight." The couple came up on stage to the cheers of the crowd. "My City Of Ruins", "Waitin' On A Sunny Day", "Darkness On The Edge Of Town", and the third "Lost In The Flood" of the tour are played by sign request. "The River" is dropped from the set for the first time of the tour. Final tour appearances for "Wrecking Ball", "Youngstown", "Tougher Than The Rest", and "The Ghost Of Tom Joad". The strings, all violins, are Bardfeld, Sara Caswell, Janey Choi, Rachel Golub, Joyce Hammann, Todd Reynolds, Mazz Swift, and Orlando Wells.
