*Tour Premiere


– “”My Kind of Town” or “My Kind of Town (Chicago Is)” is a popular song composed by Jimmy Van Heusen, with lyrics by Sammy Cahn. It was originally part of the musical score for Robin and the 7 Hoods, a 1964 musical film starring several members of the Rat Pack. It was nominated for the 1964 Academy Award for Best Original Song but lost to “Chim Chim Cher-ee” from Mary Poppins. Although the song predated the Grammy Award Best Original Song for a Motion Picture category, the entire score was nominated for the 1964 Grammy Award in the category Best Original Score Written for A Motion Picture, but it lost to the eponymously titled Mary Poppins score.”

“Frank Sinatra recorded several versions which have appeared on many of his albums. Also, many artists have performed the song as a tribute to Sinatra in posthumous tribute albums. In addition, the song had been recorded by many other artists prior to Sinatra’s death. The lyrics, which praise the city of Chicago for its people and institutions, repeat the phrase My Kind of Town several times, usually in a line that says “My kind of town, Chicago is””. – Wikipedia

Follow That Dream – “Originally by Elvis Presley, from his 1962 EP Follow That Dream. Written by Fred Wise and Ben Weisman. Totally rearranged by Bruce Springsteen: originally faster, Bruce slows it down giving it a dramatic pace. Also lyrics are partially different.

Premiered during The River tour on 19 Apr 1981 at the Palais Des Sports, Paris, France. It was the opener of the show. Played 25 times during that tour. Played 11 time during the Born In The USA tour. Later played on 13 Oct 1986 at the Shoreline Amphitheater, Mountain View, CA, during an acoustic evening to benefit The Bridge School. Sound-checked during the Tunnel Of Love Express tour on 15 Apr 1988 at F. Erwin Center, Austin, TX, and played only once during that tour on the request of a fan on 14 Jul 1988 at St. Jakob Stadium, Basel, Switzerland.

Later played 6 times during the Human Touch tour in 1992 and on 26 Jun 1993 at Madison Square Garden, New York City, NY, for a Kristen Ann Carr Fund Benefit Concert. Sound-checked during The Reunion Tour on 01 May 1999 at Manchester Evening News Arena, Manchester, England, and played on 18 Mar 2000 at Pyramid Arena, Memphis, TN. Played only once during The Rising Tour on 28 Jun 2003 at Stadio Guiseppe Meazza, Milan, Italy. Also sound-checked prior to that show.” –
