Christie traffic jam scandal. Both Fallon and Springsteen are dressed identically as 1984 Bruce, including sleeveless denim jacket and headband. Performances include the premiere of "Heaven's Wall". "Just Like Fire Would" is only available to view on the Late Night website.

Official concert recording available for purchase and download via Live Nation (US/UK & EU). Audience tape (Seren) also circulates. Opening night of the High Hopes Tour and Springsteen's first show in South Africa. This is also the first show to use the USB wristband system to download a high quality official concert recording. Show-goers are able to purchase a USB wristband online or at the show and download the audio some 48 hours later; in addition, it is possible to download the audio directly in both MP3 and lossless FLAC formats with no need for a wristband. Prior to the concert the soundcheck was open to the media, and Springsteen hosted a Q&A session. No great surprises for the first night in Cape Town; 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. "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. Patti Scialfa is not present.

Of the 27 songs played tonight, over half 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".

Seemingly not content with night two's fourteen premieres, Springsteen debuts sixteen songs for 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. Mos Def joins Bruce and the band for the latter. In total, Bruce has 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".

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

Official concert recording available for purchase and download via Live Nation (US/UK & EU). Audience tape (mttdxb). A 31-song set over three hours and twenty minutes for Springsteen's final show in South Africa. 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 (along with the latter two pre-show songs), 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, explaining the encore opener, "Who'll Stop The Rain". The encores close with a solo acoustic "Thunder Road". Patti Scialfa is not present.

Official concert recording available for purchase and download via Live Nation (US/UK & EU). Pro-shot video of "Kitty's Back" is available on Springsteen's Youtube channel. Springsteen's first performance in Perth. Prior to the show the soundcheck is open to the media, and Springsteen hosted a Q&A session. Night one is a 27-song, three hour set that opens 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". The solo acoustic "Thunder Road" brings proceedings to a close. 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 available for purchase and download via Live Nation (US/UK & EU). 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.

Official concert recording available for purchase and download via Live Nation (US/UK & EU). Pro-shot video of "Stayin' Alive" is available on Springsteen's Youtube channel. 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.
