Just how could Bruce follow up two wonderful nights in Gothenburg? With the longest show in his performing history, of course. 33 songs over four hours 6 minutes, and that doesn't include the five song acoustic pre-set played to the fans that made it into the stadium early, just thank them for following him around Europe. Following the mini-set he spent ten minutes collecting signs and shaking hands before returning to the microphone to say, “Thanks to all you regulars and thanks for making it a lovely summer for us, and we'll see you in a little while!” The main set opens with CCR's "Rockin' All Over The World", last played in 2009 at the final show of the Working On A Dream Tour in Buffalo. "Prove It All Night" with the 1978 introduction follows soon after. Also played, the second "Light Of Day" of the tour, plus the Wrecking Ball Tour debut of "Back In Your Arms". The nine-song encore includes three premieres, "Detroit Medley", "I Don't Want To Go Home" (last played at an E Street Band show in 1981), and "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher And Higher". "Twist And Shout" brings the night, and the European leg of the tour, to a conclusion. What a night, what a tour. Patti Scialfa is not present and Jon Landau played guitar on "Higher And Higher" and "Twist And Shout"..

“An Olympic feat tonight at Helsinki's Olympic Stadium, as Bruce and the E Street Band make the myth real, finally doing what the legends say they've done for years: play a four-hour show. Four hours and five minutes, actually, Springsteen's longest show to date by a fair margin — and that's not even counting a special acoustic set before the main event." /
