Richmond was the first Bruce concert I took my then 14 yr. old son to. He LOVED it. It was a homecoming for Bruce since a lot of his early days were spent in Richmond. It was GREAT to see him back at home.

Scott Truesdale wrote: Having seen my share of Bruce shows, this night in Richmond was easily the best. In terms of the set list, it's not quite the feast we all gorged on during the Reunion Tour. Instead there's a re-energized Bruce and The E Street Band working a great new album - and that's worth the price of admission alone. This was Bruce in peak power - asking a audience for quiet during the slower numbers yet nearly inciting a riot during the rave-ups. Older Brucesters will find the non-"Rising" selections inspired - on this night we were treated to a solo piano "For You" as well as a full band "She's The One". The former was particularly moving as Bruce, the audience found out, has a soft spot for Richmond. Seems the city was one of the few places where Steel Mill - an early Bruce band - actually had a audience. During the encores, Bruce proved that point by bringing out Bruce Hornsby and fellow Steel Mill member Robbin Thompson to join him on the old Hank Ballard number "Let's Go, Let's Go, Let's Go". By the time Bruce and the band rolled into the last number of the night - "Dancing In The Dark" - there wasn't an ass in their seat unmoved in one way, shape or form. "The Rising" indeed.
