Bruce Springsteen played last night the first of two sold-out shows at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. No tour debuts, but instead the band delivered a great performance with quite a bunch of classic 70’s stuff like «Adam Raised a Cain», «Prove it All Night», «Growin’ Up», «Thunder Road», «Jungleland» and «Rosalita». The last one closed the show, after Bruce said «Is this New Jersey? We can’t go home until we’ve played this one!». Both Patti and Jay were back in the band. Jay played the whole show. See complete set list.
But the big news of the night was the confirmation that Springsteen and the E Street Band will be back in Jersey in the fall. Bruce himself announced it during the show. Before it is demolished, Springsteen will be the last artist to perform at Giants Stadium, with 3 shows on Sept. 30th, Oct.,2nd and Oct.3rd. Tickets will go on sale June 1st.
