May 12: Chicago

In the wonderful city of Chicago, Springsteen debuts his version of the sensational «Mony Mony» (by Tommy James & The Shondells –see video of their original 1968 version-), a song that Bruce had previously sung only at small clubs shows in New Jersey or as part of the «Detroit Medley» during The River tour in 1980/81.

Other Chicago highlights include «Spirit in the Night» (as second song of the night, right after «Badlands»), the sign requests («Trapped» and «Candy’s Room»), and a shit hot version of «Jungleland» that gets a large ovation. During the afternoon soundcheck Bruce and the band rehearsed Bob Dylan’s «Like A Rolling Stone», perhaps thinking of the next tour stop? Jay played from «Sunny Day» til the end of the show.
