When the came back, almost every song they played was at least ten minutes long (The E Street Shuffle was over 20 I think) and included lots of hilarious drunken Bruce rambling. He told this FANTASTIC story about how he Met Clarence Clemons too. It's fairly epic The show lasted until 2 o'clock in the morning
That's just awesome! You know, as much as I don't really like what I know of Springsteen's studio material, everything I've heard of him live has appealled. I've said in the past that I wouldn't cross the road to get his studio discography for free, but would think about paying to see him if he came to Melbourne.

I mentioned while they were young, cause from what I understand he was known for going even longer when he was younger, but it's good to see that the Vertigo tour is were you really see the longest shows. But I'll never understand the 2x Vertigo

I'm listening to the first few tracks of teh Depot show before I go to bed, and God, all I can say is that Streets is an AMAZING opener
Yeah, Bad and 40 would turn into sprawling epics sometimes (respective record runtimes are 16:16 and 16:45), but the sets in general were shorter, often 16-19 songs.

I hope they start to push towards the 2.5 hour mark on the next tour. One perk of stadium shows is that they do tend to play a bit longer, even if it's just one or two songs more.

Cool, they're playing the D and the Dominoes version of Layla on the radio rather than that goddamn acoustic Clapton one.

They never even made an official announcement about WTF had actually happened. I imagine they didn't want to give all the other idiots working there ideas... But an email went around asking if anyone had any information, and reminding us not to let anyone through the security doors without a pass, etc etc. If they catch whoever it was, I doubt we'll ever hear about it, except through the rumour mill.

Oh don't say that. The 40 from Bologna on TUF tour (I think it was the second show) with the Feed The World snippet is stunningly beautiful.

I would say if you can stand it, do see him sometime if he comes anywhere near you. It was just so amazing. The guy's edging on 50 and he still jumps around the stage, plays 25-30 song shows, and rocks the fuck out where at all possible. Not to mention the fact that he's played over 100 different songs this tour!

I have to find the transcript of the story he told about Meeting Clarence...it's just so hilariously random, because it's obvious that he forgot what he was talking about for a couple minutes, so he rambled til he could remember

If I had to go to a stadium show, I damn well better get an effin long set that's all I know

A Sprawling Bad is something I would not mind I'll tell you that much.

What does he do? In the performance of OOC on 30/12/89, he does this acting routine like he's in Las Vegas - but it makes sense because he talks about "I remember playing Dublin, turn of the decade, '89 to '90, now there was a special night".
