Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band continued their mini-tour of Ireland as part of their larger European trek on Thursday in Cork at the Páirc Uí Chaoimh stadium. The Boss opened the concert with Creedence Clearwater Revial’s “Who’ll Stop The Rain.”

It’s called The Emerald Isle for a reason and it was rainy in Cork on Thursday. Bruce seized the moment and came out with one of his famed “Who’ll Stop The Rain” Creedence Clearwater Revival covers to kick things off. Springsteen last perfomred the song in Australia in 2017, as per Brucebase. Watch Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band on “Who’ll Stop The Rain” below:

Bruce also fielded sign requests for “Light of Day” and the beloved classic “Atlantic City.” The first “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town” since 2016 was also a sign request. Bruce led the band through his take on the holiday favorite, complete with ripping Jake Clemoms sax and The Boss getting the crowd involved, 222 days before Christmas. Watch a clip below:

Following a host of classics for the encore including “Born To Run” “Bobby Jean” and “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out,” among others, Springsteen brought the concert to a close with the recently debuted cover of The Pogues’ “A Rainy Night in Soho,” which he unveiled on Sunday in Kilkenny in honor of the band’s late frontman Shane MacGowan.
