    Wow.

    I expect a full review, but for that part of the show all I can say again is just wow.

    Just to make you a little jealous, I did get Incident in Chicago.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    A cover of Gin and Juice by the Gourds. It's an old style Bluegrass version of the Snoop Dog hit. It sounds as if that is the way the song was meant to be sung. Hilarious.
    Yeah, I've heard that too! Ain't it funny how the attitude in which you approach a song, along with the style, really affects the interpretation.

    When they sing it, you jokingly think "Damn, hillbillies!)

    When Snoop croons it, you think "That's one bad mutha.."
    Hey! What're you kicking me for? You want me to ask? All right, I'll ask! Ma'am, where do the high school girls hang out in this town?

    Here goes:

    When I walked in, I was handed this list of rules: http://home.comcast.net/~magic_rat/brucerules.jpg

    The arena is the old Riverfront Coliseum. It was in good shape. Looks like they've remodeled a few times. Kind of reminded me of going into Market Square, with the entrances to the arena few floors up with a large concourse for milling around before you go in. The inside concourse also reminded me a bit of Market Square (although fortunately not nearly as crowded).

    The stage was set in the middle of the arena floor, with the unused half of the arena curtained off (again reminding me of Market Square, although with different curtain placements).

    Tickets said the show was to start at 7:30, but for some reason he didn't wander on stage until a little after 8.

    1. Two For The Road - I've enjoyed this catchy little tune since I first heard it on the B-side of the Tunnel of Love 45. I'm not sure if this has ever been played live before. Anyway, Bruce played the electric piano for this and it was VG.
    2. Reason To Believe - sung with a lot of distortion on the mic, so I would imagine if you didn't know the song it would have been hard to understand the words. It was a cool arrangement, though, with the distorted vocal and harmonica, with Bruce supplying a beat with some sort of something he was stomping on.
    3. Devils And Dust - standard arrangement, but well done
    4. Empty Sky - I think this was even more effective than during the Rising shows
    5. Long Time Comin' - I've liked this one for a few years. Like the record, this live version is a little more upbeat thant he previous live versions. Started off with a little talk about the 3 stages of parenthood. 1. You're the benevolent hand of God. 2. You're a tolerable idiot, with money 3. You're an f'ing idiot, with money. Thank heaven for the money or you wouldn't get any respect! It was a good version. After having asked for quiet earlier, it was pretty amazing when he stepped away from the mic and continued singing. Not a sound out of the crowd.
    6. Silver Palomino - He said this one was requested by somebody at the hotel earlier in the day. I don't know why. It was fine.
    7. Janey, Don't You Lose Heart - Another catchy little tune played on electric piano. Had to have somebody bring out the music for it. Played a solo with a big smile on his face, as it seemed like he thought he might not make it through. Didn't sing the "no, no, no, no, no" part during the choruses.
    8. The Promise - Outstanding, played at the piano. Much stronger than the solo piano version on 18 Tracks. Doesn't have the twang in his voice that he had on that one. Piano outro led straight into...
    9. The River - Well played and always moving. Pretty strong piano playing.
    10. Ain't Got You - Played on an electric guitar Bo Diddley style. Broke a string somewhere along the way. A lot of fun.
    11. All I'm Thinkin' About - his voice cracked when he first started the falsetto, then said something about if he doesn't find his voice he'll stop that sucker and do something else. Got a drink of water and made it through.
    12. Living Proof - This has been one of my all-time favorites since Lucky Town came out. It resonates with me even more now that I have kids. Changed the lyric to "As fragile as each and every breath/Of this child sleepin' in our bed". Probably the highlight of the night for me.
    13. Reno - I think I "got" this one more live than I have listening to the CD
    14. Walk Like A Man – Another highlight – Started on the electric piano, then switched to the regular piano mid-song. Awesome. Stayed at the piano and led right into...
    15. Racing In The Street – Always like this one. Might've gotten the biggest crowd reaction of the night.
    16. The Rising – This was also very effective. Sang the “dream of life” background vocal by bowing his head so he wasn't singing directly into the mic. Worked well for the purposes of song and showmanship
    17. Darkness On The Edge Of Town – Pretty rocking version
    18. Jesus Was An Only Son – I liked this a lot more than I expected to. I guess I hadn't listened to it much on the cd. He started with some talke about family and then mixed in some more spoken word between the verses that was very moving
    19. Two Hearts – I like this song, but it didn't really do much for me in this version
    20. The Hitter – Another one that I'd heard on boots before the CD came out and another one that I liked a lot more live than on D+D. Sang this one sitting on a stool.
    21. Matamoros Banks – Another one that I liked more live than on the record
    (encore)
    22. Open All Night - Fun, with a lot of it played with a bit of a wide-eyed goofy expression
    23. This Hard Land – Well done, but didn't do a lot for me, really.
    24. The Promised Land – I thought this was a great arrangement.
    25. Dream Baby Dream – I really don't know what it was, but it was pretty good, if a little long.

    All in all, I'd rate this as one of my favorite shows of all of the times I've seen him. His singing was excellent. He was excellent at the pianos and organ. Definitely much better than the Joad tour. He was more engaged with the crowd than he has been on the last couple of tours.


    There you go. All you ever wanted to know and some you didn't.........

    I think I mentioned this, but Dream Baby Dream made its world premier in Chicago, as an audible. Even though he'd played Incident and The River back-to-back, everyone was talking about the "what the heck was that last song" as we left the theatre. Well, not me, I'd checked my blackberry and found that the Pacers had come back to beat Detroit, so I was in a dead-sprint home to watch the game on TiVo.

    I think Jesus Was an Only Son works much better live than studio - we had the same impression.

    Reason to Believe - I'm glad I knew he was opening with it and people were saying, "You won't recognize it" because they were right.

    I'll bet "Ain't Got You" was a lot of fun, even with a broken string. I think that song, and Tunnel of Love in general, are way under-rated.

    This has been fun, but I'm ready for an E Street Band tour.

    Too bad you didn't get "I'm on Fire" on banjo.

    What was wrong with "Two Hearts"? Was it just that the song just screams out, "Needs Little Steven on stage, too."?

    Nothing was really wrong with it. It just didn't seem to have a spark. I'll have to see if I can find copy of the show and give it another listen.......

    Had to do a quick sign in to say - sometimes I don't get the whole Bruce Springsteen thing, or have ever heard of some of the songs you post here. But, man....Cortez....that's a good one.

    I know she's living there
    Loves me to this day
    I still can't remember when
    or how I lost it...my way


    Sure is good.

    I'm listening to a Rigoletto recorded in Mexico City in 52 with Callas and Di Stephano.
