June 13: Bonnaroo Festival

Thousands of people saw Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band perform yesterday at the Bonnaroo Festival in Tennessee. Though the set list might seem rather standard, the energy level was extraordinary and Bruce delivered a strong performance for almost three hours. No big surprises, except for the inclusion of «Santa Claus is Coming to Town».

«Growin’ Up», «Thunder Road» and «Santa Claus» were the sign-request performances of the night. A film crew directed by Danny Clinch shot the concert (and apparently the other shows at the festival).

Max Weinberg was back with the E Street Band for most of the show, until Jay came up to play «Radio Nowhere» and forward. Evan Springsteen joined the band during the encores.

Fuse, the official festival TV, will offer highlights from the show today at 4.oopm ET.
