Info & Setlist | Venue

The last of three shows in East Rutherford breaks the record set on August 25 and is the longest U.S. show ever, clocking in at four hours and one minute. Once again the show opens with Sam Bardfeld's string-section accompanied "New York City Serenade" and ends with "Jersey Girl". The set begins with an incredible run of nine songs written in 1973 or earlier, including the tour premiere of "Kitty's Back". Three other tour debuts pepper the set: "Pretty Flamingo", "Living Proof" (dedicated to Bruce and Patti's oldest child, Evan), and "Secret Garden" (for only the third time at a full concert), all of which were rehearsed at the extensive soundcheck. The printed setlist also included three other songs from the 92/93 period, "Lucky Town", "Human Touch", and "Better Days". The first song from The River does not appear until the 18th song of the night. Rickie Lee Jones is onstage for several songs on percussion and backing vocals but is mostly inaudible throughout. The strings, all violins, are Bardfeld, Sara Caswell, Janey Choi, Rachel Golub, Joyce Hammann, Todd Reynolds, Curtis Stewart, and Mazz Swift.
