Info & Setlist | Venue

First show of the 'Summer '17 Tour', a run of fourteen shows in just over a month in Australia and New Zealand. The first of three shows in Perth is a 30-song set kicking off with a string-accompanied version of "New York City Serenade" followed by a political speech 48 hours after Donald Trump is inaugurated as President of the United States: "The E Street Band is so glad to be here in Western Australia", said Springsteen. "We are a long way from home, but our hearts and spirits are with the hundreds of thousands of the women and men that marched yesterday in every city of America and in Melbourne. Who rallied against hate and division and in support of tolerance, inclusion, reproductive rights, civil rights, racial justice, LGBTQ rights, the environment, wage equality, gender equality, health care and immigrant rights. We stand with you. We are the new American Resistance." The set structure is very similar to that seen at the final shows of The River Tour, with a suite of songs from Greetings From Asbury Park, NJ and The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle early on. The show features the only tour performances for "Does This Bus Stop At 82nd Street?", "Lost In The Flood", "Kitty's Back", and "Incident On 57th Street", as well as "Blood Brothers", which makes its first ever appearance outside the U.S. in a solo acoustic arrangement with the original lyrics, performed by sign request. Nils takes over the vocals for a verse of "Darlington County", as he did on the 2016 River Tour and will for the full Australia/New Zealand run as well. Patti Scialfa is not present.
