March-June 2000 The tour rolls through North American arenas with increasing intensity and many rarities in the setlist. June 4 2000 At Philips Arena in Atlanta Bruce debuts two brand new songs, "Further On (Up the Road)" and "American Skin (41 Shots)". The latter is based on an incident where a young immigrant was killed by the New York City police with 41 bullets. Despite never having heard the song this causes members of the NYPD to call for a boycott of Bruce's upcoming shows at Madison Square Garden in New York. A huge controversy follows in newspaper columns and television news broadcasts. June 12 2000 Bruce, who until now has remained silent since performing "American Skin (41 Shots)" in Atlanta, finally shoots back at his critics when at the first of 10 Madison Square Garden concerts, he comes out on stage and plays yet another new song, "Code of Silence", and later follows it with another rendition of "American Skin". Despite booing from parts of the audience, "American Skin" will be performed at all ten remaining shows of the tour. July 1 2000 The Reunion Tour, as fans have dubbed it, ends with a final show at Madison Square Garden. It's the longest show of the tour and includes a powerful version of "Lost in the Flood" for the first time since 1978, and ends with an emotional performance of "Blood Brothers", with the band members lined up on stage holding each other's hands. The last two shows of the stand are filmed with high-definition cameras. Fall 2000 Except for a couple of club performances Bruce is almost completely off the radar screen during the fall. On November 3 he performs at the first annual Light of Day benefit show supporting the Parkison's Foundation. He is on stage with Joe Grushecky & the Houserockers for more than an hour. December 17-18 2000 Bruce begins a new tradition by assembling a host of band members and friends for two holiday shows at the Convention Hall in Asbury Park. The shows feature the Max Weinberg 7 as the backing band and also work as a great showcase for Little Steven, Southside Johnny, Nils Lofgren, and Patti Scialfa, who each get a turn in the spotlight.
