Albany had the luck of getting the, possibly, longest show of the tour so far, including two unexpected tour premieres («a double shot from Wild & Innocent», as Bruce mentioned): «Sandy» and «The E Street Shuffle». When the moment arrived, Danny Federici got the spotlight while beautifully playing the accordion (his favourite instrument for his favourite Springsteen song).
Before «She’s the One», there were two choices in the handwritten set list, «Candy’s Room» or «Darkness». No doubts tonight: Bruce did both.
«Thunder Road» was back in the encores, this time dedicated to Matt Delia («on of my best friends in the whole world») for his 53rd birthday. Patti was absent.
