Bruce Springsteen Treated New Jersey to the Best Setlist of the Tour

As of late, Bruce Springsteen has received some criticism from fans for sticking to a rigid setlist during the E Street Band’s ongoing world tour. No one who attended The Boss’ hometown show in E. Rutherford, NJ on Sunday left complaining though; Springsteen deviated from the tour’s traditional setlist by subbing in seven fan favorites.

Over the course of 28-song performance, Springsteen and E Street Band treated fans to renditions of “Two Hearts,” Something in the Night,” “Spirit in the Night,” “Atlantic City,” “Jungleland,” “Detroit Medley,” and “Jersey Girl.”

All told, it made for easily the best setlist of the tour. The second half of the show was particularly epic, as the band finished the main set with “The Rising,” “Badlands,” and “Thunder Road,” and followed that up with a seven-song encore featuring “Jungleland,” “Born to Run,” “Rosalita (Come Out Tonight),” “Detroit Medley,” “Dancing in the Dark,” “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out,” and “Jersey Girl.” See the full setlist and watch fan-captured concert footage below.

After Springsteen was briefly sidelined due to illness last week, the 73-old-old musician looks to be back in fine form. The E Street Band’s latest leg of North American tour dates runs through December. You can find tickets here, and read our recap of the band’s recent gig in Chicago here.
