Impressed and surprised and satisfied! Bruce's piano renditions of For You, Real World and Racing were outstanding and will hopefully be released on a cd.

The Devils and Dust material works well live. There are the usual Springsteen signatures such as: Heartbreak, the pursuit of dreams, relationships, personal triumphs and loss. Jesus was an Only Son is a beautiful piece of work. Maria' Bed and Long Time work well live.

I really love the piano work. Real World, For You and Racing, as already mentioned, were personally my favorites of the evening. And the acoustic Promised Land, it resonnates with a quiet determination on a more personal level. Another stellar show by Bruce. Thanks.
