Some funny moments included Bruce messing up the line in Long Time Coming - "It's me and you, Rosie, cross.....cracklin' like crossed wires...". Bruce had a huge grin when he and the crowd realized the goof. Then he changed the next part to "I hope I'm not gonna f*ck it up this time". After the song he said that he wished he had recorded it that way, to give himself a little wiggle room. He seemed to be off his game just a bit later too - when he played Cynthia, he sang "Cynthia...." and then paused and then restarted it. It looked like he had forgotten the words. Then, during Bobby Jean there was a spot where the same thing happened. Oh, and there was a sound glitch before "I Wish I Were Blind", and he made a joke about sound engineers having groupies too, and that someone wasn't minding the store. All in all, it was a fun show and nobody seemed to mind the glitches - most thought they were fun.

Oh, and the highlight of the show for me was Sherry Darling, as well as a rockin' version of Part Man, Part Monkey.

I can honestly say that it was better than the show at the fox theatre. For one, the opening song was tunnel of love, that was great on electric piano. It was funny to see bruce mess up the end of long time comin', he also played sherry darling, one step up, it's so hard to be a saint in the city, cynthia, i wish i were blind. I liked the rip on kansas before playing part man, part monkey. The highlights of the night were ain't got you, an incredible version of the rising, the promised land, and dream baby dream. It was a solid 2.5 hour concert. It's a shame that bruce did not come back to detroit on this fall leg of D & D. But hopefully he goes back on the road next year.
