Info & Setlist | Venue

Springsteen & The E Street Band rehearsals for the upcoming Reunion Tour. Max Weinberg stated in a late February 1999 interview that rehearsals had not yet started, so it appears that all rehearsals took place during the month of March. However security was tight so exact dates and setlists are unclear. However, the setlists below are accurate. In reviewing original media/fan reports of these rehearsals there are five songs that warrant special mention. Three then-new and previously undocumented Springsteen compositions were rehearsed – "Land Of Hope And Dreams" (it premiered live early in the tour), "Further On (Up The Road)" (it premiered live near the end of the tour) and "Waitin' On A Sunny Day" (sound-checked mid tour but not played in concert). "American Skin (41 Shots)" was not rehearsed in March, as Bruce didn't write the song until mid-tour. "Restless Nights" is the only song from the Tracks box that is known to have been rehearsed that was not later played at least once on the Reunion tour - it would not be performed in concert until the Working On A Dream Tour in 2009. "The Price You Pay" (from the River album) was the notable regular album catalog song that was rehearsed but then not subsequently performed on the 1999-2000 tour. Many other songs were performed in these rehearsals beyond those listed here.

Both "Waitin' On A Sunny Day" and "Further On (Up The Road)" would eventually be officially released on The Rising in 2002.
