The Spring U.S. tour came to an end last night in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with a great show that found Bruce and the band in full force, opening with «The Promised Land» inmediately followed by the tour debut of «I Wanna Be With You» and the welcome comeback of «This Hard Land». Bruce told then some stories about the early days of the E Street Band, before playing «Growin’ Up».
A special guest came up for the encores, Bruce’s airplane pilot James Michael Brown, who, as Bruce said «he plays the trumpet!». His performance added some extra horn power to «Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out». After a good set of encores (which included «Thunder Road» and «Rosalita») and the usual end with «American Land», Bruce & co went back to the stage, as it happened in Cincinnati, for a final extra encore of «Kitty’s Back».
See complete set list.
Coming next: the beginning of a 3-month European tour of stadiums, with three shows in Dublin starting May 22nd.
