SPRINGSTEEN AND THE E STREET BAND TACKLE BORN
TO RUN AND DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN IN SWEDEN
Legendary rockers Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band brought their Wrecking
Ball World Tour to Stockholm, Sweden this weekend for performances at Friends Arena on
Friday night and tonight. The Boss and his band had a huge surprise in store for their
fans as they performed the 1975 LP Born To Run in its entirety on night one and
followed that up by tackling 1978's Darkness On The Edge Of Town this evening.
Springsteen introduced Born To Run on Friday with the following speech,"Stockholm
was one of the first cities we came to when we first left the United States…it was
miraculous to us to be greeted as we are when we come here, year after year after year. We
want to thank you and all of your relatives for making us a part of your life, your
country, your culture.” He then told the crowd he wanted to come up with a surprise for
the show and decided the play the album that started it all.
At tonight's still in progress show (as of press time), The Boss had another trick up his
sleeve with the full performance of Darkness On The Edge of Town. The Boss
mentioned to the crowd, "We are excited to be back in Stockholm... Coming here since
1975... the love we've gotten here over the years is very special."
