Bruce Springsteen Celebrates Labor Day With Memorable Show in Philadelphia [VIDEO/POLL]

Last night I had a chance to see my third Bruce Springsteen show this tour. This time, at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. Needless to say, it was one I’ll never forget. The Boss never takes for “the working man” for granted and since yesterday was Labor Day, he worked hard at giving his crowd a show for the ages.

 

Bruce Springsteen opened up the show with an acoustic rendition of the deep cut “Factory” off of his album, “Darkness on The Edge of Town”. The hook “it’s the working, the working, just the working life” was very fitting for the occasion. From then on, he played a handful of classics including “The River”, “Thunder Road” and “Prove it All Night”, as well as some songs off of his new album.

One of the highlights came towards the very end of the show when, for only the third time this tour, he played “Jungleland”. A song that has been omitted from most setlists because of the passing of Clarence Clemons. Jake Clemons, Clarence’s nephew had been officially initiated into the band when the band busted it out in Europe. As a special treat, “Jungleland” made an appearance towards the end of the encore.

Check out the video:
