in spite of ourselves

bruce tour almost begins, setlist spoiler version

The first Asbury Park Rehearsal Show was tonight. Don't read if you don't like to know what's been played.

He opened with "Radio Nowhere." Played seven songs from the new album. Three each from Born to Run, Darkness, BitUSA, and The Rising. Nothing from any of the albums between BitUSA and The Rising, nothing from Devils and Dust. Finished with "American Land," which I suppose is a bit of a surprise. Twenty-one songs total, of which I've only listed twenty. Can you guess what the big surprise was? It was the first encore song.
