Tour premiere for "Atlantic City" and live debut of "Froggie Went A Courtin'". It seems that Bruce had no intention of playing the latter. The original setlist that was on the lightboard showed that he was intending to play "Devils & Dust". A seven-year old boy in the front row waved a stuffed animal frog at Bruce. He went up to take the toy and motioned as if he was going to sign it for him. The kid told him that he wanted to hear “Froggie” to which the Boss sheepishly looked down and laughed…. “Uh…..we don’t play that one ……….” After a bit of chiding from the pit crowd… Bruce looked back at the band and asked if they could play that one….. who’s gonna argue with the Boss!?…. To which Bruce laughed as he strapped on his harmonica……”That’s what I like….confidence from the band…..” (sarcastically). “Okay, this one goes out to ………what’s your name?……. kid says “RIVER”………. Bruce: (laughing) “Yeah, I got another song for you too”. Patti Scialfa is not present. Horn section is Baron-Manion-Pender-Rosenberg.

E Street Band member Roy Bittan makes a guest appearance for "Pay Me My Money Down".

Bruce hangs out next to the piano with a huge grin on his face, yelling stuff at Roy off mic, and for the big finish Bruce plays the last chord along with him, dragging his elbow down the keyboard - courtesy backstreets.com.
