Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band hits the Leeds Arena, Leeds, England

“According to press reports, Springsteen specifically requested a date at this brand new amphitheatre-style arena, and will be the first act to perform there.” – Brucebase

My prediction for this concert is that they will play the full River album from start to finish. 1) They have lately premiered songs from this album. 2) River box rumors 3) Statement above.

We’ll see how it goes. (edit: It didn’t go as I predicted…usual story with Bruce Springsteen concerts) :)

Notes:

– “Hungry Heart”, “Local Hero”, “Gotta Get That Feeling”, “Bad Moon Rising”, “Thundercrack” and “Secret Garden” were crowd requests.

– “Secret Garden” was dedicated to all European fans who follow him around.

– “Bad Moon Rising” is a song written by John Fogerty and performed by Creedence Clearwater Revival. It was the lead single from their album Green River and was released in April 1969, four months before the album. The song reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart for three weeks in September 1969 (see 1969 in music). It was CCR’s second gold single. (read more)
