2013-07-24 First Direct Arena, Leeds, England

According to press reports, Springsteen specifically requested a date at this brand new amphitheatre-style arena, and will be the first act to perform there. The tour's final "Roulette" opens the 29-song, three hour show, one of eleven songs before "Wrecking Ball". Three one-off tour premieres in a row: "Local Hero" (last played nearly a decade earlier in Detroit), "Gotta Get That Feeling" and Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Bad Moon Rising", last played with the Band during 2004's Vote For Change Tour with John Fogerty. Encores begin with the tour's sole "Secret Garden" dedicated to the fans that have been travelling around Europe, not played since June 22, 2000 in New York City. "Secret Garden" is also the 218th song to be performed on the Wrecking Ball Tour (view our list of every song played this tour). Set once again closes with two acoustic tracks, including the tour's final "If I Should Fall Behind". First ever performances in Europe of "Gotta Get That Feeling" and "Secret Garden" and first ever performances in England of "American Skin (41 Shots)", "Bad Moon Rising", the tour's final "Thundercrack", the tour's final "This Depression", and "Shout". Patti Scialfa is not present. Curiously, the planned setlist for the show included the entire Side "A" of The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle, but not side "B".
