To send photos, ticket stubs, concert ads, handwritten setlists, etc. The evening began with the Basie's Rusty Young describing the benefit show's mission, to raise money for the restoration of this year-old theater to its original glory -- "when the ceiling wasn't covered in netting" -- and this night alone brought in more than three million dollars.

This was the Magic tour's first stop in Texas, and they got a strong one -- Bruce in high spirits, great energy, fast pace, the band in fine form.
Yes, it was the same mall, in the shadow of the same, cold, neo-classical government buildings, where Springsteen joined John Kerry on November 1, This time around, though, more of an air of cautious confidence was evident as Bruce contributed his final set to the cause and introduced Obama's family to his own.
This slightly truncated set may have had more to do with the fact that Obama was due in Cincinnati later in the evening and had just arrived from Columbus. Standing off stage along with Patti were their three children, all of whom joined Bruce onstage moments after he introduced Obama and his family to the crowd. It was a special moment as Barack's youngest daughter, Sasha, sheepishly shook Bruce's hand after her father introduced the two. For a minute, both families blended together on stage as Barack thanked Bruce for his support, Obama telling the crowd, "A rising is coming!
Find video on CSpan. Caroline Kennedy introduced the artists, and Bruce had a few more words before the performances began -- first of all, about the undercard: Hopefully no one will leave the room screaming like in rehearsals! Arie for his new song, "If You're Out There. Joel followed with his band which would be the backing band for the rest of the evening for two of his own songs, "Miami " and "Baby Grand.
The main event featured the Boss and the Piano Man together. On "Thunder Road," simultaneous piano action from Billy "I like this one! This was truly a blended set -- not only trading off songs, but trading off verses as they sang on each other's songs.
Bruce was surprised that Billy didn't know "Spirit in the Night" -- he called out chords throughout -- but was really into his own verse on "New York State of Mind," a highlight of the night. In the encore, one more Bruce tune: Some inspiring words from Obama himself, who also offered plenty of praise for the night's artists: They write inspiring songs about the problems of everyday heroes that have been ignored for far too long by those in Washington, and that is what this campaign has been all about.
We have a lot of work to do in the next 18 days. So call your neighbors and e-mail all your friends and keep this great spirit from this room going until election day. Obama also revelaed that, backstage as they were listening to the show, he told his wife: It's not a time to take anything for granted. I had the tequila lined up on the bar An overcast day brightened up while Bruce was onstage, as the sun came shining through during "The Rising" as if on cue.
See the Detroit News for a degree view; Gary Graff's take here. The second day of Springsteen's Vote for Change rallies brought him to Columbus, where he was introduced by Ohio native, Mercury astronaut, and former U. Springsteen opened up with a bit of The Byrds' "Hey Mr. Spaceman" in his honor. After that, a seven-song acoustic set, as in Philly, beginning with "The Promised Land" and including a variation on his rousing speech from the previous day.
The event, which brought 10, to OSU's Main Oval, was "aimed at encouraging Obama supporters to take advantage of Ohio's weeklong same-day voting period," the Associated Press reports, "in which state residents can register and cast an absentee ballot on the same day Absentee voting in Ohio began Tuesday. The state's voter registration deadline is today. Saturday afternoon in Philadelphia, Springsteen began his three-city tour of Vote for Change rallies for the Obama campaign.
After the introduction by a wisecracking Governor Ed Rendell, Springsteen and his acoustic took the stage for a seven-song, minute set that opened with "The Promised Land.
Springsteen also prepared a speech the occasion, calling for a rock to keep his pages from blowing in the wind -- "Don't throw it! Come on, Philly, let's build that house. Toward the end of the set, the crowd broke into a spontaneous "Yes we can" chant, Bruce adding some percussion on his guitar before offering up one more, a regular from the '85 stadium tour, Woody Guthrie's stirring "This Land is Your Land.
I've spent 35 yrs writing about America, its people, and the meaning of the American Promise. The promise that was handed down to us, right here in this city from our founding fathers, with one instruction: Do your best to make these things real.
Opportunity, equality, social and economic justice, a fair shake for all of our citizens, the American idea, as a positive influence, around the world for a more just and peaceful existence. These are the things that give our lives hope, shape, and meaning.
They are the ties that bind us together and give us faith in our contract with one another. I've spent most of my creative life measuring the distance between that American promise and American reality. For many Americans, who are today losing their jobs, their homes, seeing their retirement funds disappear, who have no healthcare, or who have been abandoned in our inner cities, the distance between that promise, and that reality, has never been greater or more painful.
I believe Senator Obama has taken the measure of that distance in his own life and in his work. I think he understands in his heart the cost of that distance, in blood and suffering, in the lives of everyday Americans. I believe as president, he would work to restore that promise to so many of our fellow citizens who have justifiably lost faith in its meaning.
After the disastrous administration of the past eight years, we need somebody to lead us in an American reclamation project. In my job, I travel around the world, and I occasionally play big stadiums, just like Senator Obama.
I've continued to find, whereever I go, that America remains a repository of peoples' hopes, possibilities, and desires, and that despite the terrible erosion to our standing around the world, accomplished by our recent administration, we remain for many, many people this house of dreams. One thousand George Bushes and one thousand Dick Cheneys will never be able to tear that house down.
They will, however, be leaving office -- that's the good news. The bad news is that they'll be leaving office dropping the national tragedies of Katrina, Iraq, and our financial crisis in our laps.
Our sacred house of dreams has been abused, it's been looted, and it's been left in a terrible state of disrepair. It needs care; it needs saving, it needs defending against those who would sell it down the river for power or a quick buck. It needs a citizenry with strong arms, hearts, and minds.
It needs someone with Senator Obama's understanding, temperateness, deliberativeness, maturity, compassion, toughness, and faith, to help us rebuild our house once again. But most importantly, it needs you. It needs us, to rebuild our house with the generosity that is at the heart of the American spirit.
A house that is truer and big enough to contain the hopes and dreams of all of our fellow citizens. Because that is where our future lies. We will rise or we will fall as a people by our ability to accomplish this task.
So now is the time to stand with Barack Obama and Joe Biden, roll up our sleeves, and come on up for the rising. Watch Bruce's speech and "The Rising" above; for more video, visit cbs3. An enormous turnout for one last Magic show, Bruce and the E Street Band's Saturday night special for Harley-Davidson 's th Anniversary; it was one last stadium-sized performance, the outdoor set slightly tailored and lengthened for the occasion to be a fuel-injected, good-time rock 'n' roll blowout.
Gates opened early for showgoers to get some relief from the brutally hot day -- at least the stage offered some shadow. Bruce himself arrived in Milwaukee in time to emerge before his opening acts -- looking like a biker himself, in long sleeves, denim, and sunglasses -- coming out on stage to greet the crowd, shake some hands and give some waves to the field before the sun went down.
Apparently not in time to practice with Alejandro Escovedo, though, who put in a well-received minute set with no Bruce appearance. Main event showtime at 8: Bruce made 'em both happy with the opener, a scorching "Gypsy Biker"'s first time in that position. A rocking sign set commenced with "Wooly Bully," the old Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs hit, the request spelled out in cotton balls on a sign in the shape of a bull.
The only time they really seemed to slow down to catch their breath was on "Darkness on the Edge of Town," a beautiful performance that served to center the band before they dove back into the fray with "Youngstown. Davidson -- and as a "good end-of-summer song. Just when you might have thought it was over, Bruce hollered at the band, "Come on!
An amazing "Seven Nights to Rock" kept the engines roaring after "Badlands" to close the main set, Bruce truly rocking out on guitar at the end. He was absolutely beaming, getting hugs from Bruce and Steve before leaving the stage.
Of course, "Sandy" also includes the line "Every summer when the weather gets hot they ride that road down from heaven on their Harleys Some have expressed surprise that Springsteen would play a corporate event, but it's hard to deny his affinity with the "product. For "Thunder Road," the screens displayed Bruce's motorcycle cred, showing a series of images of Bruce riding over the years -- and the crowd ate that up, too.
During "Glory Days," Bruce: A quick kiss for Ginny -- "That's my sis! We can't leave without this one, I guess I hope we know it! We're only just getting started! Saddler 3, 4, 5, 6, 8. With the E Street Band headlining the Harley-Davidson anniversary festival next weekend, most of us have looked at the Magic tour as ending there in Milwaukee.
But as the tour neared its close, the Harley show began to look more and more like a separate thing. Louis barnburner had the feel of one of Springsteen's penultimate night specials. Indeed, in Kansas City on Sunday, Bruce confirmed that they wouldn't be saving the last dance for Milwaukee: Yes, Max Weinberg on the mic! The night before was the rock 'n' roll blow-out, with Kansas City more of a sprawling, celebratory, everything's-out-the-window-now romp -- the way Springsteen seems to like to wrap up a tour these days.
Not with a neat bow, but with ribbons everywhere. That led into "Cynthia," Bruce telling the crowd, "We're gonna do back-to-back Farfisa songs tonight! Oh, we're really flying by the seat of our pants now! A little tutoring, be right back. And maybe there was really only one song this could be -- the one, perfectly fitting song to break out for a sign like that. But in any case, damn impressive that they came up with it on the fly: Max made the most of it, hollering out to "Kansas City!
Musically, it sounded fantastic. A brilliant sign moment. Breaking out another oldie just a few songs later, Bruce put the spotlight on another E Streeter. A great performance, with Bruce taking a verse and sharing the mic with Soozie on the chorus. A poignant "Sandy" opened the encore "in honor of our good friend Dan," Bruce said, with Charlie moving over to piano and Roy on the accordion. Bruce mentioned a donation that Sprint made to the Danny Federici Melanoma Fund and continued, "We're closing out our first tour ever without him.
Gonna send this one out to you But of course that wasn't all she wrote just yet. A wonderful, soulful moment before the hopping commenced. Hannah, a little girl who had the honor a couple times before on this tour, came back for one last dance -- she upped the ante for Bruce with a cartwheel, and he responded with a somersault of his own.
Thank you Kansas City! Thank you E Street Nation! And it sure would be a whole lot more bittersweet if we didn't know they were going to be back on stage in less than a week! A real humdinger, and I like it like that.
As the last notes of "Twist and Shout" died away, the buzz and general consensus was "best night of the tour. But no question, St. Louis was a peak performance, with a mind-blowing setlist and the energy to match. As the show stretched to three hours and 15 minutes, with two false endings to "Badlands," Mighty Max simply tearing up the drums, and three songs after "American Land" Bruce didn't want to get off the stage, and the energized crowd didn't want to let him go.
A delirious opener, a song I thought I'd never hear, but hey, we've come to expect such things this month. What I didn't expect was that it would be just the first of five classic covers in the set -- six, if you count the resurrected "Not Fade Away" intro to "She's the One.
Trying to stump us with stuff we played 23 or 30 years ago. Tonight we'll challenge the band And in the nine-song encore, three more rock 'n' roll rave-ups -- "Detroit Medley," "Little Queenie," and "Twist and Shout" -- took it over the top. But the oldies were only part of what shot this one into the stratosphere. And then there were the epics: Bruce showed the "Drive All Night" sign to the crowd, and after an initial cheer there was an extraordinary hush, the whole place seeming to sit back to let it wash over.
With the stage bathed in purple and blue light, it was a magical performance -- soulful, understated playing from the band led to tremedous crescendos, and then, if anyone had forgotten, Clarence reminded us of his power on that horn. For the first "extended play" song after "American Land," Springsteen decided to set a wrong right. Well, it hadn't happened until St. Costas had conculded his correction by writing: Phelps a shout-out on Thursday night in Nashville, or Saturday night in my hometown of St.
He made good retroactively on the news reports, continuing with a knowing smile, "We're gonna send this one out to Michael Phelps. Eight golds -- whew! And Brian, thanks for the shout-out. From there, the whole place was fist-pumping go!
And no one actually expected the band to stick around for yet another one, but a prominent sign reading "Sophie loves Bruce" was just the excuse Springsteen needed to keep things going.
Bless you, Sophie, wherever you are, and hail, hail rock 'n' roll. Nashville was all about going the extra mile. Why just do "She's the One" when you can add the "Mona" intro? With Bruce on vocals and Nils on guitar, the only possible complaint about this magical moment was that it was too short.
Why just do "Growin' Up" when you can include one of those long-loved and much-missed stories in the traditional spot? Bruce was obliging a sign that read, "Play Growin' Up Let's do "I Fought the Law.
It's those kinds of moments that have long elevated Springsteen's performances to greatness, and Nashville was full of them. Between the signs and the approaching end of the tour, spontaneity has become the rule.
That wasn't quite enough -- "Short conference? And again at the end: A great sign set continued with "Growin' Up," that story starting off with the classic, "Well there I was We've played this a few times, it's good for a laugh, and probably one of my most insightful songs about men and women," Bruce said with a chuckle.
Did you ever feel like you were held up without a gun? For a show that seemed to be one of the most undersold of the leg, the Nashville crowd was into it and ready to hop.
Once again, it's E Street Band al fresco. And it's not like they had really scaled back performance-wise in the arenas, but tonight at Hersheypark Stadium it was decidedly a stadium-sized show. Three hours and 29 songs, with a powerhouse eight-song encore, and an emphasis on confections like "Darlington County," "Sunny Day," and "Working on the Highway," which Bruce performed out at the end of the center stage thrust.
Instead, the Hershey show was a cover-fest: First up was "Summertime Blues" to open. The next one was a tour premiere from the sign collection -- "Oh my god We're going with obscurity Two more covers came in the encore: And did I say there was local flavor? Well, not of the chocolate variety -- but just down the road from the home of the "Scopes 2" trial , Bruce sent this one out to "the Dover parents, and good science education.
Like taking candy from a baby. If I had played it, nobody would give much of a damn if they heard it or not! Just because it hasn't been played My recollection is that it's been a while since we've played 'Crush on You.
Reacting to a sign, Bruce himself seemingly couldn't believe they were actually about to play it. Steve even more so, from the look of him. Still, butt of jokes though it may be, it was one of the biggest holy-shit moments of the tour to date, kicking off the encore with a blast of energy. On one hand, it's a throwaway River rocker The perfect kind of thing as "Ramrod" has long shown for encore time. The only thing we like better is some vintage rock 'n' roll, like, you know, "Quarter to Three.
Bands classic was next last played at Shea in , as the nightly E Street Band-as-cover-band history lesson continues -- with "Twist and Shout" closing the eight-song encore to boot.
But it's not like they saved all the good stuff for the end. In a very solid main set, a sign that read "My band just broke up -- please play 'Backstreets'! In all, 13 songs not performed at the previous show in Charleston, also including "Cadillac Ranch" and, previously played only in Amsterdam on this tour, "Stand on It. Springsteen and the band's first visit to Charleston since the Darkness tour -- last stop here was August 1, at Gaillard Auditorium.
What's next, "Mountain of Love"? Keep those signs comin'! Surely aware of their long absence from these parts, Bruce and the band really turned it on and, frankly, played their asses off -- and the energy onstage was matched by the thunderous audience, clearly very appreciative of getting Bruce back.
From the beginning, greeting the band with a roar to rival any European audience, this was, as Bruce declared a couple of times, a "great, great crowd. The show was full of requests and audibles, including "Two Hearts" early in the proceedings.
One of the few times the crowd flagged was during "Janey" -- granted, the tempo was off, it was a slow version, but though it was a treat for the hardcores, it read as a headscratcher for the crowd as a whole. Opening the encore was a very rare only the second time on this tour "Streets of Fire" -- a searing version and a real highlight of the show, thanks again to a sign. As Springsteen said, ""We need to come back more often! The Magic tour comes back inside but the open-air feel continues, with this arena show a continuation of the tour's summer evolution.
As at the stadiums, Bruce and the band were often flying by the seat of their pants, taking requests by sign, playing only a handful of Magic songs for better or worse , breaking out "Rosalita" and other recent big-stage barn-burners like "Youngstown" and "Murder Inc.
Tonight's sign collection came after "Spirit in the Night," and the first request was a reach-back cover right up there with "Little Latin Lupe Lu": An intermittent encore treat in the late '70s and sometimes medleyed in '81, the last time they even touched this one was nearly a decade ago, when they worked a bit of it into "Light of Day" midway through the reunion tour in Philly. And just as Philly was an appropriate place to break it out the Philadelphia-based Dovells took the song to 3 in , the Sunshine State is a fitting place for it, too: Steve Van Zandt played with the Dovells in the '70s on the Florida oldies circuit, picking up the nickname "Miami Steve" in the process.
More requests in the encore: And after "American Land," there was the now-traditional one more: And as Bruce said after "Spirit," "I think a little rain agrees with you guys.
It was a shorter show compared to the three nights in Jersey, not quite cracking the three-hour mark, and judging by the cross-offs on the handwritten setlist including an unplayed "Racing in the Street" after "Mary's Place" , it seemed Bruce had to put some effort into how to trim the show a bit. But they still blew way past Gillette's In between, it was another party show -- all release, little tension -- with even more granted requests than usual bringing a pair of tour-debut covers and more rarities to set this night apart.
The biggest mind-blower came after "Tunnel of Love," as Springsteen gathered a heap of signs and complimented their "professionalism. But it seemed the band was ready after all, the song sounded great -- and the professionalism of the sign sure didn't hurt Bruce's performance. As he pointed out, the sign had the "Lupe Lu" lyrics printed on the back in a Bruce handwriting font, no less with "Key of F" written at the top.
The requests kept coming, as "Does This Bus Stop at 82nd Street" its second tour performance and "Hungry Heart" followed, and then it was another cover special for the occasion.
Not "Dirty Water" -- though there was plenty of that on the ground -- but another one almost as foreseeable: He's out there tonight. He didn't bring a sign, though! Unusually, Bruce gathered more signs as the encore began, and kicked it off with another fan choice: Wherever the fuck we are!
Wow -- when's the last time a U. Granted, the final Jersey show didn't start until 9: They delayed showtime to accomodate the horrendous traffic, finally playing to what appeared to be a fuil house though some fans were still arriving as late as "Livin' in the Future. Giants Stadium was an oven last night, hot and humid, leading to what Bruce called a "Jersey baptism" in "Mary's Place," as he sponged water onto the crowd "in the name of the father, the son, and Elvis! Appropriately enough, for both the heat and the traffic, Bruce began the show with "Summertime Blues.
The signs brought some classic early material to the set, but first Bruce had his own idea: As Springsteen strummed the chords, refreshing himself and the band, he told the crowd that it was "just Patti's birthday a few days ago," and began ruminating on their history together.
And then again when he was 24 and she was Back to those signs: After "Blinded," though, Springsteen opted to keep the tempo quick, going into a powerhouse pack of "Cadillac Ranch," "Candy's Room," Night," and "Because the Night" -- the last of these featuring another somersaulting solo from Nils. While that forward roll may have been less of a surprise this time, Nils having done the trick before, it was no less shocking -- how the hell does he do that and keep on playing?
And after the drawn-out "Mary's Place," Bruce finally made good on his earlier promise, as the strains of "Incident" filled the stadium -- "for you old, bald fans.
A high-energy encore opened with "Jungleland," Clarence shining on the solo; Steve hammed it up good on "Dancing in the Dark" as he and Bruce struck a tango pose.
Steve, it should be said, has been really into it on this stand, looking like he's having a blast and ever-considerate, handing out bottles of water to overheated fans, too. Of course, if you thought "American Land" would be the last song on this night, you haven't been paying attention. Two more songs, though? Well, that's a closing night special.
First up was the long-awaited "Jersey Girl" you knew it had to come out here, right? And finally, Bruce and the band closed out their homecoming stand with "Rosalita," one more "fairytale" to send fans home happy, well after coaches had turned into pumpkins. Watch video from the all three nights, the first three songs from each Giants Stadium show, at NJ. Night two at Giants Stadium, and another show to crack the three-hour mark, at 28 songs. Well, 29, if you count "Happy Birthday" -- more on that in a sec.
In all, it was a more fun, upbeat show than opening night, with lots of goofing around from Bruce. Everyone was on top of their game, with some choice rarities and some special guests, too. During "Summertime Blues" Bruce began the nightly sign collection -- "Send 'em down!
Flipping through them after "Tunnel," he found one to his liking, for a song previously only played twice ever: We're getting screwed somehow This song was written in -- and it was prophetic.
That said it all! But there were more goodies to come -- "Saint in the City" was next, and with some confusion about the key, it veered dangerously toward train-wreck territory As for guitar-work, Nils had a great night too -- most astoundingly, pulling off a forward somersault in the middle of his "Because the Night" solo, playing straight through. Some intra-family dedications, as "Waitin' on a Sunny Day" went out to Sam and Evelyn -- "That's for my boy," Bruce reiterated at the end.
After "Drive All Night" made its U. Jay kicked ass -- he's got the power, and Max looked on with pride. One more after "American Land" "I don't wanna hurt nobody -- I want everyone to go home happy!
Garry's daughter was up there, too -- definitely familiy and friends night at Giants Stadium. Watch video from the show at NJ. This first of three shows at Giants Stadium and first U. They played 30 songs on this opening night, shooting well past the three-hour mark. After rejoining the band for the four shows in Spain, Patti Scialfa was with us again tonight, bringing out "Brilliant Disguise" and "Tunnel of Love.
After "American Land," and after making like he was done for the night, Bruce came back to the mic and told the crowd, "You ain't got it.
I still got it Let's get it on! Watch video from the first three songs at NJ. Springsteen and the E Street Band wrapped up their European tour with back-to-back shows at Barcelona's enormous Camp Nou -- the largest stadium in Europe. Even at that size, the place was packed, with 80, tickets sold per night; that made things somewhat uncomfortable on the floor, but with the level of Bruce fanaticism in Spain being what it is, it surely only added to the atmosphere for a good portion of the crowd.
The energy in the crowd is just unbelievable -- they were into it from beginning to end, dancing in the nosebleeds meters from the stage! Over the two nights, Bruce and the band played a total of 43 different songs, with 15 songs coming out for the final night that weren't played the night before.
Night one, on Saturday, was a relatively straightforward set, at least for a tour that's continually evolving. There was less focus on the reqests than I saw earlier on the tour, with a little more structure in the set. Those don't matter when you hear really great versions of 'Backstreets,' 'Jungleland,' 'Tunnel of Love' and 'The River. The Next Generation were twisting and shouting onstage, too. For Sunday night's closing show, repeat attendees might have felt like they were witnessing a continuation of the night before: Anyone disappointed in Saturday night's "standard" setlist got a slew of rarities, too, including the tour premiere of "I'm Goin' Down," the second tour performance of "Light of Day," and a trifecta of "This Hard Land," "Youngstown," and "Murder Incorporated.
Hearkening back to the show-closing cover-song blowouts of old, both "Detroit Medley" and "Twist and Shout" came out in the encore, as did the Young Springsteens once again, joining their folks to wave goodbye to Barcelona, and to the European Magic tour.
It's been a remarkable two months, with Bruce and the Band quickly getting up to speed on the larger stadium stage and expanding the show to match. In addition to songs tailor-made for these bigger venues, like "Hungry Heart" and "Born in the U. Hard to believe it's over so soon. But if you're looking for a sad song, we ain't gonna play it: The penultimate city on the European tour.
Patti's still in the fold, and out come "Brilliant Disguise" and "Tunnel of Love. A UK fan writes: But that view abjectly fails to describe what was a rip-roaring, passionate affair at the Bernabeu. The energy, passion and sheer joy coming from the crowd was uplifting and at times electrifying -- no wonder Bruce delights in playing to Spanish audiences. The show drew to a close just after 1 a. Check out the intro from Javier Bardem! If the Spanish word for "passionate" is the best single word to describe last night's show in San Sebastian, then apasionado por la vida "passionate for life" is the best single phrase to best understand and explain the local hosts there to enjoy the show.
I'm not sure how else to properly describe the happenings at Estadio Anoeta Tuesday evening where Bruce and the band turned an already apasionada throng into a frenesi. And one would think it would take quite a bit to get the locals into a frenzy. After all, they already live in what might best be described as one of the most beautiful, elegant cities in the world, where several thousand including yours truly spent the sunny, degree day at one of the handful of eye-popping beaches located right downtown.
And they already have some of the best food in the world, where one can wander through the streets and find pinxos tapas bar after pinxos bar loaded with even more delectibles than are at the beaches.
And after Spain's recent victory in the European Soccer Championship, not to mention the previous day's conclusion of the Running of the Bulls just down the road in Pamplona ,it's not as though the locals need any more excitement in their lives. But that would only serve to misunderstand the passion deeply embedded here for Bruce and the band. The night's biggest surprise came right out of the gate when Patti Scialfa, absent for so many of the recent Magic shows having been home minding the teenagers suddenly appeared on stage.
And when the band kicked into "Tunnel of Love" to start things off, the needle on the passionometer started to register. And the jumping began more on that later. Nils' great solo towards the end of the song was a thing of beauty, and the band was just getting started.
With a solid if perhaps not jaw-dropping set list that included all songs previously played on the Magic tour, someone who wasn't there might conclude that this show was a yawner.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Bruce was as juiced up as the crowd, feeling the passion, feeding on it and giving it right back. He looked possessed most of the night. And other than a few surprises "Growin' Up," "Atlantic City," "Incident on 57th Street" and "Tougher Than the Rest" the band expertly worked their way through the set list with their 'A' game.
Having already heard so many of these frequently played songs so often, a skeptic or regular attendee of the tour might think that the San Sebastian show wasn't as interesting as some of the others. This show was about passion and perfect execution. After hearing "She's the One" or "Badlands" or "No Surrender" and others for the umpteenth time, I found myself saying to myself, "Wow -- that was really good.
They were stunning and most were as good as I have ever heard. And the passionometer kept steadily rising throughout the night, redlining on many occasions. One of the better examples of the passion in the crowd is the European tradition of jumping up and down during songs, hands often up in the air.
I saw a bit of this elsewhere in Europe, but nothing like what I saw last night. For the uninitiated Yank, start with what University of Wisconsin football fans do between the third and fourth quarter of every home game -- standing and jumping up and down for a few minutes while they pump House of Pain's "Jump Around" through the PA system.
Great stuff to be sure, but the Cheeseheads are lightweights compared to the Basques. Last night's crowd jumped around for three straight hours.
I've never seen or felt anything like it. Even Bruce was jumping up and down at a few points during the show while playing guitar. But to scan across the stadium and witness a sea of heads bobbing up and down is a sight to behold.
And it wasn't just the people in the stadium jumping around. Just outside Estadio Anoeta, at the far end opposite the stage, stands a large apartment building which overlooks the stadium itself. Needless to say, all of the balconies and the roof were filled with people watching the show and, you guessed it It reminded me of Chicago Cubs fans watching a game from the buildings behind the ivy-covered walls of Wrigley Field. He broke away from his clique. Rip apart what has been sewed.
