Both Fallon and Springsteen are dressed identically as 1984 Bruce, including sleeveless denim jacket and headband. Live premiere of "Heaven's Wall" and first performance in the US of "Just Like Fire Would", which was not broadcast and was available only on the Late Night website.

Opening night of the High Hopes Tour and Springsteen's first show in South Africa. The Specials' "Free Nelson Mandela" opens the 27-song set, but otherwise the show bears a strong resemblance to a Wrecking Ball Tour setlist. Only four songs from High Hopes, including "American Skin (41 Shots)" and "The Ghost Of Tom Joad", the latter with Tom Morello sharing lead vocals, make the show. "We Are Alive" is dedicated to Nelson Mandela and features rewritten lyrics with references to South African history, and the set closes with an acoustic "Thunder Road". Click on the date/location link above to view video of "Free Nelson Mandela" as well as photographs and other media. Soundcheck is open to the media, including a Q&A session with Springsteen. Patti Scialfa is not present.

Official concert recording was available for purchase and download via Live Nation until June 30, 2014. The recording is now available to purchase in multiple formats, including CD and high definition audio, from Springsteen's official live download site at live.brucespringsteen.net. This was the first show released officially in the live download series. Show-goers were able to purchase a USB wristband online or at the show and download the audio, when made available a few days after the show, or could opt to purchase the audio alone in either MP3 or lossless FLAC formats. Audience tape (Seren) also circulates. Pro-shot video from the soundcheck of "Heaven's Wall" and the tail end of "Just Like Fire Would" are available through the Rolling Stone South Africa YouTube channel.

More than half of 27 songs played were not performed at the first Cape Town show. Highlights include "Trapped", "Prove It All Night" with the '78 guitar intro and "Just Like Fire Would". "We Shall Overcome" is dedicated to Pete Seeger, who died on January 27 at the age of 94. "Two Hearts" includes "It Takes Two". Patti Scialfa is not present.

Seemingly not content with night two's fourteen premieres, Springsteen debuts sixteen songs, all in their first-ever South African performances, including the world premiere of "This Is Your Sword" and the first performance of Little Steven's "Sun City" on tour, with guest. Mos Def. In total, Bruce played 57 different songs over the three nights in Cape Town. Other notable tracks in the 30-song set include "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)" in slot three, a nice Darkness On The Edge Of Town double-shot of "Adam Raised A Cain" and "Something In The Night", as well as "Tougher Than The Rest". Tom Morello's brother proposes to his fiancée on stage - fortunately she says yes. Set also includes the 400th performance of "Waitin' On A Sunny Day". Patti Scialfa is not present.

2014-02-01 - FNB STADIUM, JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA

Pre-show (solo acoustic): WORKING ON THE HIGHWAY / I'LL WORK FOR YOUR LOVE / GROWIN' UP

FREE NELSON MANDELA / LAND OF HOPE AND DREAMS - PEOPLE GET READY / NO SURRENDER / SEEDS / OUT IN THE STREET / CADILLAC RANCH / HIGH HOPES / WRECKING BALL / DEATH TO MY HOMETOWN / HUNGRY HEART / I'M ON FIRE / THE RIVER / AMERICAN SKIN (41 SHOTS) / HEAVEN'S WALL / MURDER INCORPORATED / JOHNNY 99 / WORKING ON THE HIGHWAY / DARLINGTON COUNTY / SHACKLED AND DRAWN / WAITIN' ON A SUNNY DAY / THE RISING / THE GHOST OF TOM JOAD / BADLANDS / WHO'LL STOP THE RAIN / BORN IN THE U.S.A. / BORN TO RUN / BOBBY JEAN / DANCING IN THE DARK / TENTH AVENUE FREEZE-OUT / SHOUT / THUNDER ROAD

Springsteen's final show in South Africa is a 31-song performance, lasting three hours and twenty minutes. Bruce appears on stage while the stadium is filling to entertain the early-birds with a three-song solo acoustic set that includes "I'll Work For Your Love". Pro-shot video of that song and "Growin' Up" is subsequently posted on Springsteen's Youtube channel. Some three-and-a-half hours later the main set opens with "Free Nelson Mandela" and is followed by "Land Of Hope And Dreams", hardly surprising considering the close links the FNB Stadium has with Mandela. Five tour premieres make their South African debuts (plus two more in the pre-set), including "Cadillac Ranch" and by request, "I'm On Fire". Bruce's microphone fails at the start of "The Ghost Of Tom Joad", resulting in a nice two-minute guitar improvisation before he continues the song. Rain falls during the show, prompting the encore opener, "Who'll Stop The Rain". Show closes with a solo acoustic "Thunder Road". Patti Scialfa is not present.

Official concert recording was available for purchase and download via Live Nation until June 30, 2014.

Prior to the show the soundcheck is open to the media, and Springsteen hosted a Q&A session. Soundcheck includes a full-band "Dream Baby Dream", an arrangement which will not be seen in a show. Springsteen's first-ever performance in Perth is a 27-song, three hour set opening with the tour premiere of "Frankie Fell In Love" and also includes "The E Street Shuffle" and a sixteen-minute "Kitty's Back". Bruce slips a few lyrics from "Oh, Pretty Woman" into the latter. A solo piano performance of "For You" is another highlight, played by request. "She's The One" includes "Not Fade Away" in the introduction, and the tour premiere of "Ramrod" kicks off the encores. Following "The River", Everett Bradley plays the intro to "Heaven's Wall" instead of "American Skin (41 Shots)", so Bruce changes his mind and goes with "Heaven's Wall". Springsteen forgets the lyrics to "Darlington County". Show-closing "Thunder Road" is solo-acoustic. First ever performances in Australia of "Frankie Fell In Love", "Kitty's Back", "Heaven's Wall", "American Skin (41 Shots)", "For You", and "Shout". Patti Scialfa is not present.

Official concert recording was available for purchase and download via Live Nation until June 30, 2014.

No less that eight premieres tonight, which makes a total of 56 different songs played over three nights in Perth. Biggest surprise of the tour so far is the premiere and first ever Springsteen performance of AC/DC's "Highway To Hell", which is followed by a Darkness On The Edge Of Town four-pack which includes the tour debuts of "Streets Of Fire" and "Candy's Room". Almost as surprising as the opener is what misses out - no "Waitin' On A Sunny Day". As a result this is the first E Street show since 2000 to feature no songs from The Rising album. Three more premieres in the encores include a solo piano "The Promise" and a solo acoustic "Terry's Song", only the third time it has been played in concert. First ever performances in Australia of "Highway To Hell", "Streets Of Fire", "The Promise", and "Terry's Song". "Hunter Of Invisible Game" is setlisted, but not played. Patti Scialfa is not present.

Springsteen performs at the Hope Estate Winery in Hunter Valley, a region of New South Wales. Dan Sultan opens for Bruce & Band. 26-song, three hour set opens with a cover of Stick McGhee's "Drinkin' Wine, Spo-Dee-O-Dee", an appropriate choice given the venue. The song has been covered by various artists, including Jerry Lee Lewis and Mike Bloomfield's Electric Flag, as "Wine", but this is the first ever Springsteen performance. No other great surprises in the main-set, which is typical for a festival type appearance. The encores open with a solo acoustic "The Wish", last played in 2005 during the Devils & Dust Tour, and only for the sixth time since the end of the Solo Acoustic Tour in 1997. "The Wish" is also the 114th song to be played on the High Hopes Tour. Unusually, "Badlands" does not include the false ending. "Two Hearts" includes "It Takes Two". "Murder Incorporated" is played by sign request. "Friday On My Mind" returns, and the set closes with "Thunder Road", this time performed full-band. Patti Scialfa is not present, Jake Clemons returns to the horn section after missing the previous show in Sydney.

Last show in Australia and Bruce pulls out all the stops with a thirty-song, three-hour-43-minute set. Three tour premieres open the show starting with the first ever Springsteen rendition of the Bee Gees' "Stayin' Alive". The Gibbs emigrated to Australia and settled near Brisbane in the late 1950s. "It's Hard To Be A Saint In The City", "Does This Bus Stop At 82nd Street?" and Growin' Up, including an intro story about growing up and superheroes, follow, all audibled. Following thereafter are sign request performances of "You Can Look (But You Better Not Touch)", "Sherry Darling", "Save My Love", and only the 26th performance of "Fade Away", played "for Steve". Bruce allowed the crowd to decide how to continue, more signs or something special. They selected the latter, and it was indeed something special - a complete performance of The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle for only the second time. The Cooper + Koo string section (Sally Cooper, Yena Choi, Francesca Hiew, Natalysaa Bing, Caity Lacy, Susanna Sus, Nadia Buck and Airlie Koo) join the band for "Stayin' Alive" and "New York City Serenade". By comparison the rest of the set is standard fare, apart from Eddie Vedder guesting on "Highway To Hell". The acoustic "Thunder Road" brings Springsteen's Australian Tour to a conclusion. First ever performances in Australia for "Stayin' Alive", "It's Hard To Be A Saint In The City", "You Can Look (But You Better Not Touch)", "Fade Away", "Wild Billy's Circus Story", and "New York City Serenade". Over the fifteen shows in South Africa and Australia Bruce and the band played a total of 126 songs. Patti Scialfa is not present.

HUNTER OF INVISIBLE GAME

Film shoot for portions of the Hunter Of Invisible Game short-film, released to Springsteen's website on July 9, 2014.

Bruce performs at the eighth Stand Up for Heroes benefit. The annual show helps raise funds for injured service members and is Springsteen's first public performance in over five months.

One of the guitars is purchased by NASCAR chairman and CEO Brian France and his wife, Amy. "If I Should Fall Behind" is performed as a duet with Patti Scialfa. Bruce sings a snippet of "Mystery Train" at the conclusion of the auction. The auctions raised $600,000 for the Bob Woodruff Foundation, which helps military service members and their families after they return home. The event raised a total of $6 million for the Foundation.
