He only played two hours or so the two times I've seen him, too.

Don't listen to Travis. Bruce played 2 hours and 50 minutes. He was just grumpy because it was the first show that Bruce didn't go over 3 hours in quite some time.

I'm absolutely crushed that you got BITUSA all through. Downbound Train and I'm on Fire are my white whales, with Atlantic City.

I said "like" two hours, and I think you're rounding up anyway. It was raining so the set was cut by several songs. It was a full half hour shorter than the previous night.

I won't deny that it was shorter, that's for sure. First time I saw him, I think where he played less than 30 songs...I'll have to check that Dallas setlist, because that was from the leg before he started on the tear that hasn't ended.

Nope, that Dallas show was only 25 songs, so that was probably a much shorter gig.

You just caught lightning in a bottle with the St. Louis gig is all.

Well, if we'd been at the show on the 7th instead of the one on the 8th, as we'd originally planned, I would've been to two 3hr+ shows

You better hope we're never in the same place at the same time.

Oh shit! I just checked...I've never seen him play more than 30 songs. I guess I was just thinking of him crossing the 30 minute mark. The show we got in Chicago had 27 songs and about 2:45, 2:50...the show in St. Louis was 29 songs and was like 3:30 . But, I know exactly why that was. He played a 20 minute long version of Mary's Place, Drive All Night and Jungleland at that show.

He played 29 songs in Hershey back in '08 and, ugh, that 20-minute version of Mary's Place was such a drag. Maybe the second or third best concert I've ever been to, but that was far and away the low point.

I loved, loved, loved it at my show. I think it just depends on what Bruce brings to the table that allows those performances to be good or not.

Has anyone downloaded a show yet? Curious how it sounds.

I'm excited that if it goes well, they might do it for some past shows.
