I believe it's a venue by venue thing. Good luck!

I never thought we'd see Springsteen do 30 songs or more again.
30 songs also in Helsinki last night. A friend of mine was there and described the concert as "magical". Too bad I couldn't be there

With these setlists and such, I am really excited. Anyone else have a GA experience from the other US arena shows earlier in the tour?

Hewson and I were in GA at the second Boston show (Danny's last full show). While we didn't get into the pit, we were on the rail and it was still pretty damn awesome.

Yes. Obviously in the pit would have been a tad better, but it was well worth hanging in the line after "losing" the lottery to be able to grab the rail outside the pit. The distance to the stage is still not much, you had something to lean on while waiting for the show, and the sightline was very good as most of the pit patrons are squeezed towards the stage, so there's not a lot of folks immediately in front of you.

Oh....I remeber they did that for actually getting tix for Bruce/E St when we were standing on line at Ticket Masters [RIP TOWER Records] 10 years ago or so- before the Net became big enough to do the on-line sales.
We ended up being pretty close to the random number chosen!

Will the setlists remain long when they return to the US? What do we think?

Good question. It's anyone's guess, although the fact that there is only a week gap would hopefully keep things going as they are.
