Bruce Springsteen Digs Deep Into Catalog in Charlotte
Bruce Springsteen rolled into Charlotte, NC with his newly inducted Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band in support of their latest effort High Hopes. Throughout the 30-song setlist, The Boss took a variety of sign requests from the audience including a cover of Richard Berry’s “Louie Louie,” Sir Mack Rice’s “Mustang Sally” and Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl” to go along with his originals “Racing in the Street” and “Darkness on the Edge of Town,” among others. In all, Bruce would deliver four tour debuts by the end of the show.
Another performance of note was the show opener, “Iceman,” performed for the first time with the full band. The track served as an outtake from the 1977 sessions that would ultimately result in 1978’s Darkness on the Edge of Town and was later released as a part of Bruce’s Tracks compilation. Next up for Bruce and The E Street Band is a show in Pittsburgh, PA on April 22.
