Bruce Springsteen Surprises Crowd In Newark With Rarities And Covers [VIDEO]

Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band took the stage at the Prudential Center in Newark last night, marking the final show of the first leg of the ‘Wrecking Ball Tour’. Bruce Springsteen and crew will now head overseas for a majority of the Summer before returning home in August.

Attendees at the Prudential Center got a real treat. Take a look at the setlist:

  1. ‘No Surrender’
  2. ‘We Take Care of Our Own’
  3. ‘Wrecking Ball’
  4. ‘Badlands’
  5. ‘Death to My Hometown’
  6. ‘My City of Ruins’
  7. ‘Bishop Danced’
  8. ‘It’s Hard to Be a Saint in the City’
  9. ‘Jack of All Trades’
  10. ‘Candy’s Room’
  11. ‘She’s the One’
  12. ‘Shackled and Drawn’
  13. ‘Waitin’ on a Sunny Day’
  14. ‘The Promised Land’
  15. ‘Talk to Me’
  16. ‘Apollo Medley’ (‘The Way You Do the Things You Do’ and ’634-5789′)
  17. ‘The Rising’
  18. ‘Lonesome Day’
  19. ‘We Are Alive’
  20. ‘Land of Hope and Dreams”
  21. ‘The Weight’
  22. ‘Rocky Ground’
  23. ‘Born to Run’
  24. ‘Dancing in the Dark’
  25. ‘Rosalita’
  26. ‘Tenth Avenue Freeze-out’

‘Bishop Danced’ has not been performed with the full E Street Band since the early 70s, and songs like ‘Talk To Me’ and ‘It’s Hard to Be a Saint in the City’ are not songs you hear every night. The real surprise came during the encore. Springsteen grabbed a sign request from a fan and brought it up on stage. He showed the E Street Band what he wanted to play, and then they went into a great version of ‘The Weight’, the most noteworthy song by The Band, in tribute to Levon Helm who recently died of throat cancer. Check out the video of the performance below and let us know what you think.
