Info & Setlist | Venue

After a six-year break from the road, Bruce and the E Street Band open the 2023 International Tour with a 28-song, two-and-three-quarter hour set. The soundcheck started around 3:00pm and lasted around two hours. The band took the stage at 8:00pm, kicking off with "No Surrender". The live premiere of "Burnin' Train" opens the encores, while five other songs from Letter To You and two more from Only The Strong Survive make their first appearances in a full ticketed concert, including the first ever E Street Band versions of "Letter To You", "Nightshift", "Don't Play That Song", and "House Of A Thousand Guitars". A stripped-down version of "Last Man Standing", mostly solo acoustic with added trumpet from Curt Ramm, followed a spoken intro about Bruce's old friend and Castiles bandmate George Theiss. Bruce introduced all nineteen musicians on stage before "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out". The show ends with a solo acoustic performance of "I'll See You In My Dreams", which is dedicated to Emily Rose Marcus, critic Greil Marcus's daughter who had died a few days earlier.
