music friday: the magic tour

We saw Bruce Springsteen four times during his Magic Tour in 2007-2008, twice in Oakland, once in Sacramento, and then, 11 years ago today, once in San Jose. The first two shows were the last time we saw Danny Federici, who left the tour to get treatment for the melanoma that killed him a couple of weeks after the latter two shows. He was the first E Street member to pass away.

Here's "Adam Raised a Cain" from the first Oakland show, October 25, 2007:

And from the next night, "Two Hearts" with the "It Takes Two" coda:

Jump ahead a few months, to April 4, 2008 in Sacramento, and a bit of the opener, "Spirit in the Night":

Finally, 11 years ago today, in San Jose, "Something in the Night":

And, since this is Opening Day, a bonus track: Bruce Springstone with "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" (the story of Bruce Springstone can be found here):
