Ecco la scaletta delle prove di ieri, martedi 17 marzo:
Faith was rewarded for about 50 fans who stayed until about 5:40 p.m. as Bruce Springsteen came out after rehearsals at Asbury Park’s Convention Hall and signed autographs and posed for some pictures.
Bruce walked from the top of the ramp alongside Convention Hall and made his way down the corridor between Convention Hall and the Paramount Theatre and stopped and shooked hands with just about every fan and signed a lot of autographs.
He then walked to the bottom of the ramp and met people there. He again signed autographs and shook hands and took pictures.
It was pretty incredible as he said hello to all the fans waiting.
A great day of rehearsals with some unique songs played.
Jeremy (Bosstime55) got his picture taken with Bruce and will post it later. He had to head to work.
I’m sure there will be others posting their pictures also.
Really nice of Bruce do that. Thank you Bruce.
Good day for autographs as Nils Lofgren, Max Weinberg, Jay Weinberg, Garry Tallent, Charles Giordano and Little Steven signed for the fans on their way in.
Today was Clarence Clemons first day at rehearsals and the “Big Man” arrived appropriately in a big stretch limo.
Bruce didn’t arrive til 1:15 p.m. Patti was not there today.
Prior to Bruce arriving, the band worked on a few songs with Steven/Nils doing the lead vocals:
1. Lonesome Day
2. Murder Inc.
3. No Surrender
4. Dancin In The Dark
5. Adam Raised a Cain
6. Darkness On the Edge of Town
Bruce then arrived there was a shot break and the music started up at 2 p.m.
1. Good Eye
They worked on it wice.
2. Lucky Day
4. No Surrender
5. This Life
Worked on the end part a bit. We may have some backup singers on the tour, more on that later
6. Working on A Dream
Yes, there is the whistling part. They played this half way through and started back up a bit.
Clarence played some sax at the end of the song.
7. Johnny 99
Played with the full band. Sounded like the version played on the 2004 Vote For Change Tour.
Had some nice piano in it and pedal steel. Nice rocking version.
8. Stand On it
Didn’t play the whole song but started and stopped it.
9. I Ain’t Got No Home
The surprise song of the day. The Woody Guthrie song.
According to the always reliable Flynn:
The first time I Ain’t Got No Home was played by Bruce in concert in front of a live audience was Sept 23, 1988, in Oakland. It was also played at shows on March 23, 1993 (Basie), and June 24, 1993 (Meadowlands). It has not been played at a concert since June 24, 1993.
10. Radio Nowhere
Nice Nils guitar sole in there.
12. Because The Night
13. She’s The One
Bruce played harmonica at the end
14. Mary’s Place
15. This Life
16. Kingdom of Days
17. Life Itself
a half hour break before starting up again with:
18. Outlaw Pete
19. Long Walk Home
20. Surpise Surpise
Nice Clarence sax solo at the end
21. How Can A Poor Man Stand Such Times and Live
The song that Bruce played on the Seeger Sessions Tour. They did not play the whole song.
Curtis King, who was one of the backup singers on the Seeger Sessions Tour, was there today and there may have been one other backup singer. Maybe Bruce is deciding if he wants to use them on this tour.
When Bruce arrived after 1 p.m., he was driven up the ramp and surprisingly he came down to say hello to the fans. A couple of people got pictures with him and a few handshakes but that was it.
Security then set up barriers in the concourse between the Paramount Theatre and Convention Hall and this made is good for later on, when Bruce came walking out and was able to sign autographs, shake hands and greet everyone along the barrier.
Max Weinberg signed autographs on the way out and Clarence stoped in his limo on the way out of the lot on Ocean Avenue and signed for a few people.
Most fans around all week. The bar (Caroline O’Tooles) was open inside Convention Hall so people were able to enjoy a beer on St. Patrick’s Day.
Pretty cold out today, not horrible, but as I type this, I’m still strying to warm up.
Scaletta presa da SPL.
Secondo voi come aprirà il Working on a dream tour?
