Legendary rocker Bruce Springsteen brought the E Street Band to Brisbane Entertainment Centre for the first of two shows on Tuesday night. The Valentine’s Day performance featured a 26-song set that included a tune he hadn’t played since 2013 and one that had been shelved since 2014.
The Boss and his band were joined by a string section for a “New York City Serenade” opener. Springsteen and the E Street Band then dusted off the tour debuts of “Lucky Town” and “Janey, Don’t You Lose Your Heart.” The latter was performed in response to an audience member’s sign and was last played by the group on July 23, 2013. After “Rendezvous” and “Be True,” the New Jersey rockers treated fans to tour debuts of “Back In Your Arms” and “Better Days.”
Bruce’s main set also featured the tour’s first renditions of “Leap Of Faith” and “Secret Garden.” The former was last performed by the group on May 18, 2014, while the latter was played for just the fifth time ever as part of a full E Street Band show. Tonight’s concert ended with a bevy of hits and a fun cover: “Born To Run,” “Dancing In The Dark,” “Shout” and “Bobby Jean.” Springsteen brings the band back to Brisbane on Thursday night.
