After more than a week of touring in the western parts of the United States, Bruce now takes a little break until Tuesday before resuming the tour in St. Paul. So far the tour has received mostly rave reviews from press and fans alike. Most fans agree that this is not The Ghost of Tom Joad Tour part 2, but a much more light-hearted enterprise with a looser Bruce and more setlist variations. Several rare songs have been pulled out, including the first "Two Faces" and "Cautious Man" since 1988 (the latter had only been played once before) and a pump-organ version of "My Beautiful Reward" to open the last few shows. Apart from that, it is especially "Reason to Believe" and "Johnny 99" done through a distorted harmonica microphone that have caught people's attention with their 1920's delta blues sound.
