After the controversy of the Trump/Turnbull heated phone call (read more), Bruce surprised everyone again by opening the show with a cover of The Orlons’ “Don’t Hang Up” (see original song) after saying “We stand before you embarrassed Americans tonight. This is a song from 1965 by The Orlons. We’re going to use this to send a letter back home.”Next he launched, with the E Street Band, into “American Land”, “The Ties That Bind”, “No Surrender” and “The Promised Land”, in a show which also featured “New York City Serenade” later in the set.
The encores started with an acoustic “Long Walk Home”, and closed with a rousing “Twist and Shout”.
