Another magical night on the Wrecking Ball tour. The 3-hour-plus concert featured a very rockin’ setlist, full of surprises. “Shackled & Drawn” is a welcome comeback, along with “The Ties That Bind”, “Prove it All Night”, “Darkness on the Edge of Town” or “Ramrod”. After a long afternoon soundcheck, some wild tour debuts arrived for Buffalo: “Rendezvous” and “Mountain of Love”, two hard-to-catch songs that were only occasionally played during 2008-2009.
And for the aficionados, just after the impetuous “Apollo Medley” came the tour debut of “Point Blank”, sung and played “old style” according to those attending the show, with great guitar work from Steve Van Zandt. “Thunder Road” is back as set closer.
