10.World's Apart
11.Two Hearts
12.Badlands
13. Mary's Place
14.Countin' on a Miracle
15.American Skin (41 Shots).
16.Into the Fire

Encore

17.Born to Run

I'm not familiar with the new album, but judging from the old songs on the setlist, it sounded like a pretty awesome show.

The encore is worthy.

Hell, yeah. I adore the new album, and yes, the encore rocks. Seriously, if he showed up in Detroit next week and just played Thunder Road, I could die happy.

I've just always heard stories of 3 hour jams, so it was a bit disappointing to read of how short tonight's show was.

Still extremely hyped up though!!! A week from tomorrow!!

Awww thanks for the report, Poodle!

I was hoping for I'm On Fire and Ghost of Tom Joad - but hey! The Boss is the Boss

YES!!

Also, don't forget: The man does like to yammer between songs, and some of these may have been extended. It could still clock in at almost three hours. Or I may be wrong!

I LOVE that song!!!!!!!!! That's perhaps my favorite Springsteen song of all time.

"Well you can hide 'neath your covers and study your pain
Make cross for lovers, throw roses in the rain."

Heck, I couldn't help but go look up those Thunder Road lyrics....here's the complete damn song.

The screen door slams
Mary's dress waves
Like a vision she dances across the porch
As the radio plays
Roy Orbison singing for the lonely
Hey that's me and I want you only
Don't turn me home again
I just can't face myself alone again
Don't run back inside
darling you know just what I'm here for
So you're scared and you're thinking
That maybe we ain't that young anymore
Show a little faith, there's magic in the night
You ain't a beauty, but hey you're alright
Oh and that's alright with me

You can hide `neath your covers
And study your pain
Make crosses from your lovers
Throw roses in the rain
Waste your summer praying in vain
For a savior to rise from these streets
Well now I'm no hero
That's understood
All the redemption I can offer, girl
Is beneath this dirty hood
With a chance to make it good somehow
Hey what else can we do now
Except roll down the window
And let the wind blow back your hair
Well the night's busting open
These two lanes will take us anywhere
We got one last chance to make it real
To trade in these wings on some wheels
Climb in back
Heaven's waiting on down the tracks
Oh oh come take my hand
Riding out tonight to case the promised land
Oh oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road
oh Thunder Road
Lying out there like a killer in the sun
Hey I know it's late we can make it if we run
Oh Thunder Road, sit tight take hold
Thunder Road

Well I got this guitar
And I learned how to make it talk
And my car's out back
If you're ready to take that long walk
>From your front porch to my front seat
The door's open but the ride it ain't free
And I know you're lonely
For words that I ain't spoken
But tonight we'll be free
All the promises'll be broken
There were ghosts in the eyes
Of all the boys you sent away
They haunt this dusty beach road
In the skeleton frames of burned out Chevrolets

They scream your name at night in the street
Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
And in the lonely cool before dawn
You hear their engines roaring on
But when you get to the porch they're gone
On the wind, so Mary climb in
It's a town full of losers
And I'm pulling out of here to win.

I agree, the new album is really wonderful. I just can't stop listening to it.

The problem with this shorter length of Bruce's shows, is that he is his own worst enemy. A 2 1/2 hour show is long by any standards, except for Bruce's. Wouldn't we all have been escstatic if U2 had played that long?

It's fun to read the Springsteen message boards, cause they are all complaining about the set list and the length of the show. Jeez, does that sound familiar or what???

Well, it's 2 1/2 weeks for me, and I'm looking forward to hearing the new material more than the old. I think I'm almost as excited as I was last year before the U2 shows!

BRUUUUUUUUCCCCEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thunder Road is one of the greatest R&R songs ever.

I haven't seen Springsteen in a long time and after reading the Time magazine cover story while waiting for my car to be serviced, I kind of got the Brucies again.

As for the set list (haven't heard the new stuff):

3. Prove it All Night
5. Darkness on the Edge of Town
9.The Promised Land
11.Two Hearts
12.Badlands
17.Born to Run
19.Thunder Road
19.My City of Ruins



anybody going to see him in Denver?? talk me into a road trip, please??

Phoenix is awfully tempting--that would be Moby on the 24th and Bruce on the 25th for me. But the Denver date works better and it's closer and an easy, beautiful drive. Plus tix haven't gone on sale so I might just luck out and get a good one.

Maybe I should visit the Bruce board and see if I can benefit from the kindness of strangers, too! I had a 2nd row GC seat close to the tip of the heart for U2 in Denver that I could not sell and almost gave it away at the show but could not even find someone to GIVE it to!! I was out $130 bucks and there was a perfect empty seat beside me. I wish I'd offered it to the bellboy at the hotel but was sure I could sell it at the show....
