The tour continued in Florida yesterday with a show in Ft. Lauderdale. With his voice back in full shape, Springsteen and his band delivered an stunning performance, with a sublime «Backstreets» being the highlight of the show. But there was more: «Working on the Highway» was an unusual opener, followed by «Badlands», «Night» and «Cover Me», setting the tone of the night. Later would come an unexpected «Sherry Darling», with Charlie, Roy and Nils on accordion (after tuning with snippets of «Lady of Spain» and «Hava Nagila»), plus «Factory», and special sign requests that brought «Be True», «Cadillac Ranch» and «So Young and In Love» (only for the second time this year).
«Then She Kissed Me» was the first encore (a song co-written by the late Ellie Greenwich) and the closing song was «Thunder Road». The original set list included the not-performed «Atlantic City» and «Saint in the City». For this leg of the tour Max is on the drums.
