June 4: Stockholm (night #1)

On a rainy day, Springsteen opened the first of three shows in Stockholm with John Fogerty’s «Who’ll Stop The Rain?». Rain didn’t stop, but the show grew in intensity. «Badlands» was next, followed by the return of «My Lucky Day», and then «Prove it All Night».

In the «sign request» department: «I’m Goin’ Down», «Cadillac Ranch», «Because the Night» and «Wild Thing». The return of «The Wrestler» to the set list made the show special: there were 5 songs off Working on a Dream in the set, something that hadn’t happened in a long time.

The encore was extra long, with 7 songs again, including the necessary «Twist and Shout» (now known in Sweden as ‘The Stadium Breaker’).
