He rarely plays BITUSA in North America. It's featured more often in Europe & elsewhere.

Even Thunder Road or a song like The River aren't regulars, despite being some of his most popular songs.

And yes, there will be changes.

I think he's done "Thunder Road" every time I've seen him. I've seen quite a few shows going back to 1978. Shook his hand when he came out in the crowd during 1 of the shows I saw on the original "River" tour. He stood on a chair directly in front of me. I was lucky I got to see 2 shows each on the Darkness & original River tours.

That must have been lights out good!

This is back when he used to have intermissions at shows, right?

Yes. Darkness came out when I was in high school. Early in the tour he played a 2200 seat theater. I became a fan for life. Then he came back at the end of the tour to a 5000 seat arena. I had great seats. That show he came back out long after the lights came on & half the crowd had left. Said "this if for all you die hard crazies out there". It was the last night of the tour. They did "Rave On" & "Twist & Shout" with the lights on & then trashed the stage. The original "River" tour I saw back to back nights in Seattle & Portland, both in arenas. The Seattle show was when I shook his hand. The Portland show the next night featured a minor eruption of Mt St Helens the day of the show. The band did "On Top of Old Smokey" in honor of that. It was quite an adventure driving home through the volcanic ash. I must say that the River show in 2016 was really close to the glory days. Fantastic show! It's nice that I only have less than a month to wait for the show this year. I don't go to a lot of shows these days for financial & health reasons. I got lucky & got pretty good tickets for $100 each. I'm 4 rows up behind the stage which for Bruce isn't bad. Kind of like the view from the live stream last night except I won't have people standing in front of me. Sadly, I have to sit in the seating for diabled people.

Darkness was hands down Bruce's greatest tour IMO

Love your experience on that! Happened once for me (not with Bruce tho) at a Delbert McClinton show most had left lights were up and he and band came back out, said there’s not many of you left so come on down and we all hung around the stage, some sitting on it, as they rocked out a couple more tunes.. On the Bruce note hoping to see him at least once this tour, maybe Cleveland

Cool story Chuck. Thanks for sharing.

My initial Springsteen show was 10/31/1980 at the old LA Sports Arena aka “the Dump that Jumps”; IIRC Bruce was brought on stage in a coffin and first song was Haunted House. Been to 15-20 shows since then, mostly in LA. Most memorable, though, was seeing Bruce and E St at MSG in 2009 for the initial “The River” show; also last time with Clarence.

Haven’t seen him since 2012 (missed the 2016 tour since the LA stop was same time as a trip to Australia for F1) so looking forward to seeing him again. Since he’s bypassed SoCal on this leg (rumors are he’s doing a second Desert Trip at Coachella in the fall), we’re taking a roadie to Houston later this month. (Thought about Seattle and/or Portland, but got skunked in the Verified Fan game…).

I saw Springsteen only once: Bremen 1999 (the same venue where the Stones recored Bridges to Bremen). I didn't like Springsteens show. In fact it somehow got better when I closed my eyes. After that show I had no inclination to see him again.

No worries. This patron knows better not to sing along!

The guy in Tampa couldn't carry a tune in a goalie bag.

Playing it safe the first few shows. Gonna happen.

With all those horns, maybe Kitty, Shuffle and 99 become semi-regulars. 99 was a staple on the Working On A Dream tour.

I'll See You In My Dreams is an excellent song indeed, but it sounds better as the full band studio version IMO.

I can understand why its more sentimental with just him solo. I think its great either way.

As a show closer, the solo is a better fit.
