  • Brucebase Info (05.07.2012)

A spectacular 31-song setlist for the second night in Paris with Bruce taking the concept of a varied set on night two and blowing it out of the water. A six-pack of classics (including the second "Something In The Night" of the tour) kick-off the show before we even get to the the usual opener "We Take Care Of Our Own". This wasn't the plan - the setlist shows "The Ties That Bind" going straight into 'We Take Care'. Both "Incident On 57th Street" and an extended 11-minute "Racing In The Street" are played - the last time that both songs were played at an E Street show was back in 1978. Also in the set: "I'm Goin' Down", "Easy Money" and the tour premiere of "For You", played solo on the piano. The walk-on music is "Au clair de la lune", played by the accordion duo of Roy and Charlie. Thanks to Francois for the info.

  • Brucebase Info (15.08.2012)

…First night in Boston may have been relatively standard, but Bruce really mixes things up on night two with 18 songs not played the previous night and plenty of rarities. "Thunder Road" opens, performed by Springsteen accompanied only by Roy. A quartet of summer songs follows, including the second "Summertime Blues" of the tour. Eddie Floyd's "Knock On Wood" makes a surprise appearance, only previously played with the E Street Band on April 29, 1976. "Thundercrack", "Frankie" and "Prove It All Night" (with 1978 intro) follow. If that's not enough, "Backstreets" includes a 'Dream Baby Dream' interlude. A solo acoustic "Who'll Stop The Rain" opens an encore set that also features "Detroit Medley", "Quarter To Three" (with "I'm a prisoner of rock 'n' roll!") and "American Land" with Ken Casey from Dropkick Murphys. Patti Scialfa is not present.

…Audience tape. Set opener was played as it was raining hard at the start of the concert - and it continued through most of the night. Tour premiere for "Because The Night". "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out" includes "It's All Right" and "Fire". First ever performances in Denmark of "Darlington County", "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out", "Where The Bands Are", "Stand On It", "If I Should Fall Behind", and "Land Of Hope And Dreams". Available on CD "Copenhagen Rain" (Piggham) ,"Who'll Stop The Rain" (?) and "Copenhagen Night" (Crystal Cat). The Piggham version is perhaps the best of the three.

Night three of what I consider Springsteen's greatest concert stand ever is the penultimate show in the run, and sets the stage for the final show one night later. Or, as some have argued, is night three the apex itself, the best performance of the bunch?


For me, its bit like debating Sassacaia vs. Solaia--they are both so fucking great, which is "the best" hardly matters, especially when you are fortunate enough to enjoy them both. As I have once, maybe twice, just so you don't get the wrong idea.


And both shows we shall have, but up first is March 24 and what a show it is. It retains the addition of "Incident on 57th Street" from the previous night, but for my money this is a superior performance, one of the song's finest. Joining the set this night are two welcome additions. The first is a lively "Saint in the City." Here's a track that shows off just how sublime Steve Hopkins' recording is. I'm sure three nights into the run, the sound in the room had been tuned to perfection and Steve is getting it ALL. The guitar duel can be heard right down to the six strings.


The second addition is one you all know, and probably the song that pushed the Boston run into the rarefied air it occupies: a cover of Jackie Wilson's "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher."


Why is "Higher and Higher" so significant? Well, part of it has to do with the timing of these shows, which would be the final performances before Bruce returned to the studio to begin recording Darkness on the Edge of Town. While the Appel lawsuit was not yet settled, Bruce had seen the light at the end of the tunnel, so there's a sense of both relief and anticipation that feels palpable in all four Boston '77 performances.


"Higher and Higher" comes across like that perfect addition, that one step beyond, with Bruce telling his fans through the song that they had sustained him through this dark period, when his future as a recording artist was up in air. "Higher and Higher" is akin like that great finale song at the end of a musical that just seems to sweep up every theme of the night into one last exuberant declaration. Hear for yourself. Samples provided. Ticket stub, too.


Thanks yet again to Steve for allowing JEMS to present his incredible work in a fresh light.


The Boston '77 run will return.

…First indoor arena show in Europe for this tour. In what is becoming a regular occurrence, the band take the stage to Once Upon A Time In The West. The 28-song set features the tour premieres of "Growin' Up" (with Roy playing a piano solo where Clarence would usually play the sax solo) and "Fire", the latter by sign request. "Fire" requires three (intentional) false starts, just like the 1986 Bridge Benefit show. Bruce takes the outro guitar solo on "Prove It All Night". Patti Scialfa is not present.
