Anaheim #2

The Magic resembles more and more each day the Devils & Dust tour. Not musically, but because of the constant changes and surprises in the set list. There’s a feeling now that you can get to hear anything these days, which makes these shows even more exciting. Yesterday, for the second show in Anaheim, there were 8 set list changes. For the first time, «Devil’s Arcade» and «The Rising» were left off the show.

«Thunder Road» opened the show, followed by an intense hour of non-stop rock’n’roll (except for «Magic»), which included super electric attacks on «Gypsy Biker», «Murder Incorporated», «Atlantic City», «Candy’s Room», «Prove it all Night» (an audible) and «Because The Night», with ten glorious minutes for Nils Lofgren and his marvelous guitar solos. All of this before a frenetic «She’s the One».

Minutes later Tom Morello would jump onstage again, for yet another killer version of «The Ghost of Tom Joad», one of the highlights of the show. «Last to Die» followed, skipping «Devil’s Arcade» and «The Rising» for the first time. «Dancing in the Dark» came back, along with the brilliant duo formed by «Meeting Across the River» and «Jungleland» (with Clarence nailing the sax solo).
