My wife got to help pass him back up to main stage when he had the crowd surf him back up.
He did several of his old classics, which are great, and a lot of songs that I like from his new album. I would have to say that my favorite three songs, though, were:
Working on the Highway - Great high-tempo song that I don't think I've heard live before, and it's one of my top ten Springsteen songs.
Bishop Dancing - I've heard this, but couldn't place it, and it's a great song. A knowledgeable fellow next to me said that it's only the second time he's done it in concert, and this more or less confirms that: http://ultimateclassicrock.com/bruce...me-since-1973/
Get Out of Denver - It's apparently a Seger song, but it was his first song out of the chute and it was a nice high-energy start. Part of my enjoyment may have been that I was still marveling at how close we were to the action, but it was a great fun song to start with.
That's pretty cool. I'd never heard that Bishop Danced song before. Thanks for the link.
I didn't realize that Get Out of Denver was a Seger original. I knew he did it, but I always assumed it was a cover for some reason. That would be a great one to kick off a show there.
