Tracking set lists is a popular pastime of Bruce Springsteen aficionados and the current tour has provided sufficient fodder in that department: In the 18 shows since he started the tour on March 18 in Atlanta, Springsteen has performed 65 different songs, only a dozen of which have made it into the set list every night. When the regulars drop out, such as "Thunder Road" on Thursday night at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena, it feels newsworthy in that it made an L.A. show unique.
Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band played an epic 2-hour and 50-minutee set at Austin's ACL Live at Moody Theater last night during the annual SXSW Festival. The set included special guests Tom Morello and Jimmy Cliff. Springsteen said of the annual confab that it's like "some teenage music fan’s wet dream.”
