Atlanta: deep down into The River

Though Saturday night’s show in Atlanta lasted less than 3 hours, the performance was stellar, and the setlist spectacular. Many of the concert standards were left off (and that included «Spirit in the Night», «Hungry Heart», «Waitin’ On A Sunny Day» and «Darlington County») in favor of a good bunch of songs off the last 2 albums (7 in total) plus 7 songs off The River.

«I’m on a River kind of mood», said Bruce early on, before playing a solo piano version of «Independence Day» (tour premiere), and a lot more tracks from the legendary album: «Drive All Night» (another tour premiere), «Jackson Cage», «Ramrod», «Point Blank», «The Ties That Bind» and «Cadillac Ranch».

There were a lot more nice surprises and additions to the show, from the opening «Clampdown» to the closing «Highway to Hell» and including «Adam Raised a Cain», «She’s the One», «Trapped», «Seeds» or «Tougher Than The Rest». A dream set list for oldtimers. As somebody wrote on Twitter: «All Killer, no filler!»
