After the controversy of the Trump/Turnbull heated phone call (read more), Bruce surprised everyone again by opening the show with a cover of The Orlons’ «Don’t Hang Up» (see original song) after saying «We stand before you embarrassed Americans tonight. This is a song from 1965 by The Orlons. We’re going to use this to send a letter back home.»Next he launched, with the E Street Band, into «American Land», «The Ties That Bind», «No Surrender» and «The Promised Land», in a show which also featured «New York City Serenade» later in the set.
The encores started with an acoustic «Long Walk Home», and closed with a rousing «Twist and Shout».
