I’ll Stand By You Always

Canción inédita que se ha filtrado en internet. Springsteen ofreció el tema a los productores de la primera película de Harry Potter, aunque no la usaron (tampoco era un encargo, Bruce simplemente decidió enviarles una canción que tenía escrita en 2001).

Listen to the unreleased song from 2001 that Bruce offered to the Harry Potter film producers, though it was rejected.

Melbourne #1

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”.

Adelaide: Springsteen protests

“America is a nation of immigrants and we find this anti-democratic and fundamentally un-American” (Adelaide 30-01-2017)

Bruce Springsteen is angry, like millions of other people in his country and worldwide. And he showed it today with his intro to “American Land” at his Adelaide concert.

The message continued during the rest of the show, in songs like “Land of Hope and Dreams”, “Trapped”, “Wrecking Ball”, “Youngstown” or “Murder Incorporated”.

Several surprises awaited for the Adelaide audience: Van Morrison’s “Brown-Eyed Girl”, plus Springsteen’s own classic “Racing in the Street” and a beautiful acoustic version of “If I Should Fall Behind” opening the encores.

Richie Sambora was a guest tonight, for “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out” and “Shout”, before the show closed with a festive “Rosalita”.
