Working on a Dream Tour
Were you there? Write about it!

Mary's Place and No Surrender need to be shelved. Find a new centerpiece, such as Growin Up, Leap of Faith or even Roll of the Dice, as he did on the '92 tour.
The new songs work well live.
Especially liked Outlaw Pete, Good Eye, The Wrestler and This Life.
Please don't close the main set with Badlands or No Surrender. Perhaps Backstreets or even Born to Run, as done the second night.
How about some songs from Lucky Town or more from The River? Plenty of great material to choose from.
See ya on the road.

A few new songs, does not make for a new show.
Please shelve the overplayed staples:
Bobby Jean, Lonesome Day, Sunny Day, Mary's Place, Darlington, Dancing.
Break out: Streets of Fire, Hard to be a Saint, Better Days, Something in the Night,
Soul Driver, Real World, Fade Away, Backstreets
and Spare Parts!
The new material sounds fine live, just want to see a new show. Outlaw Pete and This Life were good. Let's hear Last Carnival coupled with Kitty's Back, a little tribute to Danny, perhaps.
