I'm intrigued like everyone else by what the greatest live performer
in rock history will choose to play in order to pack the biggest
wallop in such a short time. I think any writer will tell you it's
harder to write short than long. Every second is going to count. Bruce
and the band can destroy anyone onstage over a three-hour concert, but
how is that experience going to be condensed into 15 or so minutes?
I think we all agree "Born to Run" is a given, but what about after
that? "Born in the U.S.A." might be the best opener for the unique
event. "Dancing in the Dark" seems to be a popular guess, but I think
there are more dynamic choices available. I don't think any new
material will be played. A performance that brings down the house will
be motivation enough for plenty to seek out the new CD.
The big question before any serious guessing about the setlist can
take place is exactly how long the set will last. Anyone know exactly
how long U2, the Stones, Prince, McCartney and Petty played
half time is 30 minutes.... I think the bands have about 12-13 minutes
to actually play.... the rest of the time is setting up and tearing
stage while the talking heads ramble on. I hope he doesn't play Born in
the USA.... I can just see all those drunks raising their fists in
singing along not having a clue what the song actually says!
I'd bet on Born to Run, Working on a Dream and probably something that
the general public is very familiar with..... Glory Days, Hungry Heart,
Dancing in the Dark.
I don't think there is any way he will play something new like WOAD. No
chance. it will be all hits, and i guarantee you he will play Born in
the USA... it's his biggest hit, and the one which most football fans
I don't think there is any way he would do the Super Bowl without
doing a song off the new album. WOAD makes sense, but I think My Lucky
Day woudl be better live, but he will do one of those I am almost
certain. Born To Run and either Dancing in the Dark or The Promised
Land would be my guess.
he will do Reno, Redheaded Woman and Pilgrim - with Janet Jackson and Cirque
du Soleil on hand to act out all the salient points.
seriously, I would say:
and there may be more people on 10th than just the E Street Band- Hide quoted text -
