Probably, but I'm making a thread for it anyway.
Fire away your fantasies (behave) and if you want the the setlists to be standard or varied, you won't be judged.
Here's what I'm going for. #Mariostradamus2k2042k22
"My Love Will Not Let You Down"
"Glory Days" (Extended, featuring Band introductions and banter)
"Letter To You"
"The Power of Prayer"
"House of a Thousand Guitars"
"Sleepy Joe's Cafe"
"The Promised Land"
"If I Was the Priest"
"Land of Hope and Dreams"
"Born to Run"
"Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)"
"Dancing in the Dark"
"Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out"
"Twist and Shout"
"Moonlight Motel" (acoustic)
"I'll See You in My Dreams" (acoustic)
What you got?
I got this in an email today and it has made me euphoric....🥰🥰🥰
As he and the E Street Band take the stage, Gordon Gekko will be on the big screen giving his “Greed is Good” speech….then the band will rip into a blistering version of The O’Jays “For the Love of Money”…after that it’s anyones guess.
Hello, since 2023 marks the 50th anniversary of Greetings and The Wild,... I am expecting (or rather hoping) that Lost in the Flood and Incident on 57th Street make the setlist!! 😍
I've been listening excessively to both Letter To You and Western Stars in the last couple of days...The first thing I want to say is how outstanding the albums are and how fascinated I am yet again. Put them on if you haven't in a while...
Why I'm writing this... I was thinking about how significantly both albums will define the setlists next year. I'm not going to try and predict what he'll play or what I wish he would. I just genuinely hope he will generously introduce these "new" songs with exciting arrangements that will floor us.
I would love to hear something I haven't heard before and see him enjoying immensely every minute on stage, in his element.
I haven't said this in a while... I love Bruce.
Ok, here goes....
Janey Needs a Shooter
Souls of the Departed
Reason to Believe
Follow That Dream
Darkness on the Edge of Town
We Take Care of Our Own
Prove it All Night
Open All Night
Chasin Wild Horses
There Goes my Miracle
Dream Baby Dream
See you in my Dreams
Tenth Avenue Freeze out
The older you get, the more it means....yeah??
To be in a arena, with that crowd, our people, waiting for that guy with the slight limp, to conjure more magic in the night....
I have heard it all, I have digested it all, it is my medicine.
I don't care what he plays. I just wanna see them again.
Yes.....but let's anyway.
Burnin' train, I'd say, is a nailed on opener........thinking cap on thereafter......
Since the last tour I've always felt that Thunder Road done solo acoustic at the end of those shows was the ultimate show-closing song, but Dreams will be just as good, of course done solo acoustic.
After 40 years and 114 gigs I've learned not to even try to come up with a whole set list ha! - BUT - from first hearing a few weeks back for me Ghosts had show opener written all over it (dragging out the ending / transistion with that familar battle cry of "is there anybody alive out there") straight in to Prove It or Badlands.
When watching the film last Thurs evening (so still hadn't heard the whole album) as soon as I heard I'll See You in my Dreams I turned to my wife and said - and there's the show closer (much in the vein of My Beautiful Reward back in 92/3).
Eveything else who the hell knows ha! (even these probably won't happen like this - although I hope they do!)
"I expect that we will see shows that time wise are much closer to those of other mere mortals i.e. the more music industry standard 2 to 2.5 hours."
I'm not sure why so many people seem to assume this. Bruce has often seemed really reluctant to end a show, he obviously enjoys it so much. He has made one important change, and that is to stop doing shows on consecutive nights. With very few exceptions, there's always a day off in between shows now.
Was thinking about this Friday. Had Ghosts opening, and ....Dreams closing. But the more I thought about it the more I came to the conclusion that the latter would be a last goodbye set closer. And maybe it will be, 2022/3. 😪
Maybe I am going to lose Twist & Shout and have KOD there? Acoustic, just him and Patti?
Of course it's far too early, but we all love to dream!!
I had better keep a packet of tissues handy for that ending, but I love your set list.
I have a dream of hearing Kingdom of Days played live, so I am going to revisit your set list and slip that one in - it has to be at a show with Patti, obviously.
Weirdly, I was contemplating this exact thing yesterday while listening to the album again. Even more weirdly, my opening three songs exactly match yours.
I think length wise you have it nailed also, I expect that we will see shows that time wise are much closer to those of other mere mortals i.e. the more music industry standard 2 to 2.5 hours.
My big request, if I could somehow speak to the man and if he somehow took me seriously, would be to drop the false endings and extended vamps that have become a bit rote from over use live. That is one gift of the Archive series... how refreshing Badlands is without the extra false ending(s), how much more impact rockers like Out In The Street and Darlington County have without extended repetitive outros. Assuming shorter sets time wise, dropping some of the bloat from those songs would possibly mean one or two extra songs in the set.
As soon as I saw the thread title my first (and thus far only) thought was "Burnin' Train.....opener".
I will add.
A great set! It even has an easy toilet break section :)
That set would be awesome.
