Springsteen Covers Bee Gees And Welcomes Eddie Vedder
Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band continue to whip out new covers and treat fans to inventive setlists during their Australian Tour. Tonight in Brisbane the band opened the show with a Bee Gees cover debut, welcomed Pearl Jam’s front man and tackled a classic album in its entirety.
When The Boss and his band took the stage, they debuted a cover of the disco classic “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees. The Bee Gees grew up and started their career in Australia, making “Stayin’ Alive” yet another cover Springsteen has debuted by an Australian act during his tour Down Under. Speaking of Australian act covers, once again the E Street Band welcomed Eddie Vedder for AC/DC’s “Highway To Hell.” This time the Pearl Jam front man sported a tambourine.

Let’s not forget to mention Springsteen and the E Street Band spent the majority of their main set this evening tackling The Wild, The Innocent and the E Street Shuffle -the group’s 1973 sophomore effort. “It’s Hard To Be A Saint In The City,” “Does This Bus Stop at 82nd Street?,” “You Can Look (But You Better Not Touch),” “Fade Away,” “Wild Billy’s Circus Story,” “Incident On 57th Street” and “New York City Serenade” all made their tour debuts tonight.
