But it was the deep pulls from the catalogue that made this special - Sandy and the 10th-Kitty's Back-Born To Run sequence in the encore in particular were outstanding. Peter Wolf sang a little backup on 10th Ave. Freeze Out. Great temporary farewell to this American Land!

What an amazing set list, Kitty, E Street Shuffle and yes even 10th Ave Freeze Out. Wow, that was digging deep.

As always Bruce turned the venue into a combination of a dance hall, poitical forum and circus. It was the best way I could think of to kick-off Thanksgiving week.

Way to go Bruce. Hope to see you again real soon.

That seems to explain the aborted announcement before "Sandy" and the tears in the eyes of many band members(who were hugging Dan repeatedly) during the goodbye. Just a killer show. Highlight was "Sandy" ... Phantom Dan's true showcase. Just a brilliant version, complete with the original lyrics in the 3rd verse (not the Hells Angels version). To my knowledge, it's the first time he's sung it that way since it was originally recorded. A great show ...

MARK Sr. wrote: Excellent, setlist was fantastic. Bruce used to encourage his fans to think, now he tells them what to think......as you grow older and wiser you would think that would be the opposite. He is simply the best, at a lost art, rock'n'roll. New stuff is fantastic! I've seen him 18 times, this ranks with the best including show 10 at MSG 2000!

Wendy wrote: What can I say? What a great set list - Candy's Room and Kitty's Back! I think that the band just keeps getting better and better. The energy - the sound - the message - all the songs - Loved it! What a night!

Mark wrote: Best show of the tour thus far - and I was in Oakland and Jersey. The setlist for the show was exceptional

Kram wrote: 38 shows and counting, and this one tops them all. this hard sandy e street shuffle. i didnt think he could top it off, but i was semi expecting kittys back. when he playe 10th i was thrilled but sad cause it was in kittys spot. but then bam. dannys solo in kittys was incredible only to be topped off with roys. ive never seen more emotion or energy on stage. I can now die in peace
