Correct, on the final leg he did. All five shows at Giants Stadium included a full album set. So did the four shows at the Spectrum in Philly.

The Boss in Brum.

Yes, I was there, viewing the event from the rafters.
Was it good? Yes, as good as, or even better than Edinburgh.

Between the two shows, Death To My Hometown, Darkness On The Edge Of Town and Johnny 99 were traded with My Hometown
and The River.

The River (tour debut) was a palpable performance, perhaps the best rendition of the song among those l have ever been treated to. Bruce’s drawn-out scatting towards the end of the song was so moving, touching every one of the audience’s heart, I’m sure (oops, where is the BS bs I have been so disgusted at?)

To my regret, following Edinburgh two weeks before, I couldn’t fully appreciate the show contents this time again. Not because of the BS bs, which I somehow set up my mind to shrug off with an “it is what it is” attitude. My personal circumstances had not allowed me to have enough sleep the previous night (four hours at most). Coupled with the fatigue from the long distance trip, my physical condition was far from the best when I arrived at the stadium. During the first half of the show, I struggled to sit up and tried not to fall asleep. In the gods. Shit happens, yeah.

Does anyone have an idea what the concert bag policy is in Copenhagen? Have tried to search for info but can't find it. I did see the Euro 2020 soccer tournament had an A4 bag policy.

Was an amazing show with a very lively crowd!

First song was out of tune a couple of times and he was working very hard to get it trough, but he came back very very good.

He also played the full darkness in the edge of town in London Wembley 2013. The most amazing and emotional concert I have seen.

Fukkin A!

Sep 29 in Nats Park, DC, now thanks to the reschedule will be the one time out of my lifetime 7 Bruce shows that I will finally be in the pit ('course, shows 1-4 there was no pit). But I sure know what I'm not doing. And that's be close to the rail.

Good song, Downbound Train.


Trains do make great fodder for rock songs. Mystery Train, Silver Train, Burnin' Train, many others.

Springsteen's certainly broken out plenty of good stuff, one song at a time, that he could easily freshen up 2023's U.S. Leg 2 with when he comes back.

If he's inclined to. There's no way to read his mind and know what's coming, tho.

One day I looked straight at her
and she looked straight back


...is one of my favorite Springsteen lyrics. They hardly write 'em any pithier.

And from Oslo #2's song 9, too, as everybody here already knows.

I met her at a dance down at the union hall
She was standing with her brothers,
back up against the wall
Sometimes we'd go walking down the Union tracks
One day I looked straight at her
and she looked straight back


Keeping with the perennially popular train and railroad imagery... which started appearing in song lyrics almost as soon as there were trains, tracks, stations, and distant, lonesome train whistles in the night.

IMHO, Working On The Highway is one of his worst songs (and, yes, there are some other bad ones, too).
