Nov. 15th: Milwaukee

A fantastic show, according to all accounts. Lots of energy and great songs. To begin with, «Cadillac Ranch» into «Badlands» to open and set the tone for the night. Once again, Born to Run from top to bottom, with great versions of «Backstreets» or «Jungleland», plus a fabulous set of sign requests that included «Santa Claus is Coming to Town», «Loose Ends», «Jolè Blon» and «Growin’ Up».

Bruce joked with the State name again, saying during the «Working on a dream» speech: «Good evening, Ohio… er Wisconsin… I’m just fuckin’ with ya. I’m back on my meds!». The kid singing on «Waitin’ on a sunny day» requested Bruce for one of Max’s drumsticks, and got it. «Into the Fire» showed up right before «The Rising», and the main set ended with «No Surrender».

The encores brought more: the rarely performed «Living Proof», by request, followed by a long «Kitty’s Back», then «American Land», «Dancing», «Rosalita» and «Higher and Higher». During «Dancing in the Dark» a lady showed a sign asking to dance with Steve. She was taken onstage and danced with Steve while Bruce was joking about it.
