Opening night of The River Tour 2016, at which each show on the opening U.S. leg will feature a complete performance of The River album, in sequence. The 34-song set opens with "Meet Me In The City". "I Wanna Marry You" includes the "Here She Comes" introduction, and "Point Blank" features the same piano introduction that was played on the River Tour in 1980 and 1981. The encores open with "Rebel Rebel", as tribute to David Bowie who died on January 10, 2016 at the age of 69. Springsteen first met Bowie in November 1974, after catching a Greyhound bus from Asbury Park to Philadelphia. Bowie was in the studio at the time, recording Young Americans, and would go on to record covers of "It's Hard To Be A Saint In The City" and "Growin' Up". "Shout" includes a snippet of "Take Me To The River" in the midsection.

Official concert recording available for purchase in multiple formats, including CD and high definition audio, from Springsteen's official live download site at live.brucespringsteen.net. After poor customer feedback a remix of the recording (by John Altschiller) was available for download from February 25, 2016. All purchasers of the original mix receive the remix for free. Audience tapes (by Mike Gravitt and Bakerstuff) also circulate.

Muller appeared on stage on the original River Tour, speaking to the crowd before one of Springsteen's greatest shows, the Vietnam Veterans benefit of August 20, 1981.

Soundcheck: MURDER INCORPORATED / BOBBY JEAN

MEET ME IN THE CITY / THE TIES THAT BIND / SHERRY DARLING / JACKSON CAGE / TWO HEARTS - IT TAKES TWO / INDEPENDENCE DAY / HUNGRY HEART / OUT IN THE STREET / CRUSH ON YOU / YOU CAN LOOK (BUT YOU BETTER NOT TOUCH) / HERE SHE COMES - I WANNA MARRY YOU / THE RIVER / POINT BLANK / CADILLAC RANCH / I'M A ROCKER / FADE AWAY / STOLEN CAR / RAMROD / THE PRICE YOU PAY / DRIVE ALL NIGHT / WRECK ON THE HIGHWAY / NO SURRENDER / COVER ME / SHE'S THE ONE / LOOSE ENDS / BECAUSE THE NIGHT / THE RISING / THUNDER ROAD / BORN TO RUN / DANCING IN THE DARK / ROSALITA (COME OUT TONIGHT) / BOBBY JEAN / SHOUT

The 33-song set includes the tour premiere of "Loose Ends". Normally Bruce counts twice 1-2-3-4 before "Jackson Cage", but this time he started the song after the first count. The band did not follow, so they started over. After the crowd-surf during "Hungry Heart", Jake had trouble lifting Bruce back on stage. "I'm going down!" was Bruce's cry when he almost touched the floor, but while playing the sax, Jake managed to lift Bruce back on stage. Instead of letting Nils, Jake and Soozie sing their lines on "Out In The Street", Bruce called for Garry after Steve. Gary did not expect this and was too late with his line. Patti Scialfa is not present.

With 33 songs and just short of three-and-a-half hours, the sole Philadelphia date of the tour is the longest show to date. Two tour premieres feature in the set, "My Love Will Not Let You Down" with Bruce climbing on the amps in front of the drum riser to encourage Max during his solo, and a memorable and emotional "Jungleland". Bruce adds a new introduction to "Drive All Night", explaining that late in the River sessions he needed a love song so he went back into the archives to find the song, which was originally recorded in 1977 during the Darkness On The Edge Of Town sessions. Bruce then added a new vocal to the original 1977 backing track. Patti Scialfa returns to the stage after missing the last two shows.

A 33-song set with no surprises. Before "I Wanna Marry You", Bruce assisted with an actual marriage proposal way up in Section 334. Giving a shake of his maracas and a shout out of encouragement to the young man as he proposed to his bride-to-be. A little extra money was earned from his "Dancing in the Dark" partner, as Bruce accepted a 20-dollar bill which was pinned to her unique sign in return for a dance.

Once again no big surprises in the 34-song setlist. Before “Born to Run”, Bruce took a moment to recognize the late Alex Cooley, the legendary Atlanta concert promoter, who passed away this past December. Alex Cooley was an integral part of Springsteen's early career. Springsteen and the E Street Band played three shows at Cooley's Electric Ballroom in August 1975. The Atlanta shows in 1976, 1977 and 1978 were also promoted by Cooley. Bruce dedicated “Born to Run” in his honor.

A 35-song setlist including the tour premiere "Born In The U.S.A.", which was a sign request from behind the stage. After "Shout", the usual closing number, Bruce and the E Street Band said their goodbyes and left the stage. Max already gave away his drumsticks to a lucky fan when Bruce returns to the microphone and asks "Is it too late?" stopping the crowd in it's tracks before playing "Bobby Jean", the first time a song other than "Shout" has closed the set on this tour. In the crowd, was a couple who were married in the pit just prior to the start of the concert.

2016-04-10 - GREENSBORO COLISEUM, GREENSBORO, NC

Show cancelled on April 8, 2016. The same day, Bruce released the following statement on his website:

"As you, my fans, know I'm scheduled to play in Greensboro, North Carolina this Sunday. As we also know, North Carolina has just passed HB2, which the media are referring to as the "bathroom" law. HB2—known officially as the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act—dictates which bathrooms transgender people are permitted to use. Just as important, the law also attacks the rights of LGBT citizens to sue when their human rights are violated in the workplace. No other group of North Carolinians faces such a burden. To my mind, it's an attempt by people who cannot stand the progress our country has made in recognizing the human rights of all of our citizens to overturn that progress. Right now, there are many groups, businesses, and individuals in North Carolina working to oppose and overcome these negative developments. Taking all of this into account, I feel that this is a time for me and the band to show solidarity for those freedom fighters. As a result, and with deepest apologies to our dedicated fans in Greensboro, we have canceled our show scheduled for Sunday, April 10th. Some things are more important than a rock show and this fight against prejudice and bigotry—which is happening as I write—is one of them. It is the strongest means I have for raising my voice in opposition to those who continue to push us backwards instead of forwards."

PURPLE RAIN / MEET ME IN THE CITY / THE TIES THAT BIND / SHERRY DARLING / JACKSON CAGE / TWO HEARTS - IT TAKES TWO / INDEPENDENCE DAY / HUNGRY HEART / OUT IN THE STREET / CRUSH ON YOU / YOU CAN LOOK (BUT YOU BETTER NOT TOUCH) / HERE SHE COMES - I WANNA MARRY YOU / THE RIVER / POINT BLANK / CADILLAC RANCH / I'M A ROCKER / FADE AWAY / STOLEN CAR / RAMROD / THE PRICE YOU PAY / DRIVE ALL NIGHT / WRECK ON THE HIGHWAY / BADLANDS / NO SURRENDER / THE PROMISED LAND / BACKSTREETS / BECAUSE THE NIGHT / LONESOME DAY / THE RISING / THUNDER ROAD / BORN TO RUN / DANCING IN THE DARK / ROSALITA (COME OUT TONIGHT) / TENTH AVENUE FREEZE-OUT / SHOUT

The first of two nights in Brooklyn, bringing the U.S. leg of The River Tour to an end. While the stage was bathed in purple light Bruce and Band (wearing purple clothing or accessories) pay tribute to Prince, who died April 21, by playing his classic hit-song "Purple Rain" as the show-opener. The first time this tour a song other than "Meet Me In The City" has opened, and Bruce also dropped the usual greetings and vamp section, instead speaking first at the conclusion of the song. "Tonight we want to dedicate our show to Prince of course", he said. "There's never been any better bandleader, showman, songwriter, arranger. Whenever I would catch one of his shows I would always leave humbled. I'm going to miss that and we're going to miss that." Later in the show Bruce also announced that "these will be the last two nights we will officially play The River from start to finish", suggesting that the European tour will see a change in the setlists. When asked later if The River would be played in Europe, Garry Tallent tweeted "not in toto and not in sequence". Patti Scialfa is not present.

Official concert recording available for purchase in multiple formats, including CD and high definition audio, from Springsteen's official live download site at live.brucespringsteen.net. Since April 25 "Purple Rain" is available for download in MP3 format from Springsteen's official live download site at live.brucespringsteen.net . A Pro-shot video of "Purple Rain" was added to Youtube soon after, but removed a couple of days later.

Final night of the U.S. leg of The River Tour. The 35-song (36 if you include "Blinded By The Light") set features two tour premieres as Bruce begins collecting sign-requests again. The post-River section starts with "Boom Boom", followed soon after by "Trapped". Sandwiching the two is the second "Loose Ends" of the tour, as well as a partial "Blinded By The Light", after Bruce read a sign that said "I’ve been Blinded by the Light! (I’m 10 years old and I know all the words.Try me!)" The 10-year-old girl sung the lead vocal for the first two verses, accompanied by Springsteen strumming his guitar and gentle backing from the band. For now, we are including "Blinded By The Light" in the setlist, but not counting it as a tour premiere or in Brucebase's statistics. Once again Bruce and the Band pay tribute to Prince, with "Purple Rain" opening the encores. Springsteen spoke again about the full album performance, saying "Tonight this is going to be our last official performance of The River from start to finish.... We're gonna open up our setlists over in Europe. So let's go down to the river one more time and see what we find." Patti Scialfa is not present.

As a result the set features only three songs from The River, and "The Ties That Bind", "Sherry Darling", "Two Hearts", "I Wanna Marry You", "Point Blank", "Ramrod", and "Drive All Night" are all dropped for the first time this tour. Three other tour premieres; "Darkness On The Edge Of Town", "Johnny 99", and "Spirit In The Night". The set closes with the acoustic "This Hard Land".

First of three shows at Gothenburg's Ullevi. The 38-song set ties the record for most songs in one show and clocks in at just under four hours (about 3:58), the second-longest of Springsteen's career (behind only Helsinki 2012, which was 4:06). Set opens with the first of three tour premieres, "The Promise", played alone on the piano. Main-set also includes the second "My Lucky Day" of the tour and "Save My Love" by request, as well as "Tunnel Of Love" and "Shackled And Drawn", both of which were soundchecked several times over the previous few shows. The former may have been inspired by Nils Lofgren, who replied "Tunnel Of Love" when recently asked on Twitter what song he would like Bruce to set list. It was last played August 2, 2008 in Foxborough, MA. Set closer is the solo acoustic "Thunder Road". First ever performances in Sweden for "Save My Love", "American Skin (41 Shots)", and "Shout".

2016-07-11 - ACCORHOTELS ARENA, PARIS, FRANCE

First of two concerts at the arena previously known as the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy, where Springsteen played thirteen shows between 1981 and 2012. Set opens with a solo piano "Incident On 57th Street" before the tour premiere of "Reason To Believe", the bullet microphone arrangement first seen on the Magic Tour. The set features fifteen songs from The River, the most ever to date at a show in Europe. Tour premieres also of "Into The Fire" and a solo acoustic "Nebraska". The former was last played September 22, 2012 at MetLife Stadium, while the latter has only been played one other time at an E Street Band show since 1985. Elliott Murphy and his son Gaspard joined Bruce on stage for "Born To Run" on guitar and backing vocals. The PA system and lighting failed during "Ramrod", so the band finished the song unamplified after taking a lap around the pit. While waiting for the power to return Bruce sat on the stage autographing signs while the crowd clapped and sang, and wrote a sign of his own saying "5 min break". The power returned shortly after, and "Ramrod" was resumed and completed: "Stevie! what time is it?, is it quittin' time?, is it fuse blowing time?, then what time is it!!?" The show closes with a solo acoustic performance of "Thunder Road". First ever performances in France for "Jackson Cage", "Crush On You", "I'm A Rocker", "Drive All Night", and "Shout".

Official concert recording available for purchase in multiple formats, including CD and high definition audio, from Springsteen's official live download site at live.brucespringsteen.net. Due to the power outage, "Ramrod" is only the first 2:30, and "Dancing In The Dark" is missing the opening seconds. A partial audience tape (by Eddy_Wehbe) and saved Mixlr Stream (by Tosti_Kaas ) are also available (both including the full outage).

Just like at the shows in America, Bruce does some crowd surfing during "Hungry Heart". While performing "I Wanna Marry You" a wedding proposal took place on stage, and Bruce pronounced them, by the powers of 'Rock and Roll' vested in him, husband and wife. Many jokes regarding the blown fuse of the first night in Paris during "Ramrod". In the encores a full band version of "Growin' Up", rolling straight into "Because The Night". The set closes with a solo acoustic "Thunder Road". First ever performance in Europe for "Iceman", along with the first ever performances in France for "I Wanna Marry You", "Fade Away", "Stolen Car" (last played in Europe in May 1981), and "The Price You Pay".

Max starts "Candy's Room" in the incorrect rhythm, and is corrected by Bruce. The show ends with "Bobby Jean". Patti Scialfa is not present.

Once again the show opens with Sam Bardfeld's string-section accompanied "New York City Serenade" and ends with "Jersey Girl". The set begins with an incredible run of nine songs written in 1973 or earlier, including the tour premiere of "Kitty's Back". Three other tour debuts pepper the set: "Pretty Flamingo", "Living Proof" (dedicated to Bruce and Patti's oldest child, Evan), and "Secret Garden" (for only the third time at a full concert), all of which were rehearsed at the extensive soundcheck. The printed setlist also included three other songs from the 92/93 period, "Lucky Town", "Human Touch", and "Better Days". The first song from The River does not appear until the 18th song of the night. Rickie Lee Jones is onstage for several songs on percussion and backing vocals but is mostly inaudible throughout.

His initial choice for the luxury was a chef, but after being told that no living things were allowed, he settled for a guitar. Bruce's book choice was Joe Klein's Woody Guthrie: A Life.
