Bruce used his day off on Monday to attend the Zac Brown Band show in Melbourne (Jake even guested onstage with the band). Today he has surprised everyone at this second Melbourne show starting off with “Badlands” with all the house lights still on. The song set the tone for a very rockin’ set which has continued with “We Take Care of Our Own”, “Cadillac Ranch”, “Wrecking Ball” and “Downbound Train”, before getting down in the crowd with “Hungry heart” and “Spirit in the Night”.
“My City of Ruins” returns to the set, with the band intros et al, after surprisingly skipping it on Sunday. Other highlights from tonight’s show include “The E Street Shuffle”, the rarely played “Red Headed Woman”, “Because the Night”, “She’s the One” and “Open All Night”, which has put everyone on their feet in just 19,2 seconds, according to Bruce.
Back in the encores are “We Are Alive” and “Rosalita”, in a show that has had 13 different songs from the previous show and has lasted 3 hours and 8 minutes.
