Bruce Springsteen summer 2012 concerts – Playlist

Based on setlists from all “Wrecking Ball Tour” shows, and considering the latest trends, I’ve put up a list of songs and their estimated probability to get played in the coming concerts. I’ve also created a spotify playlist.

This is off course estimates and Bruce alters his setlist for every concert. But some songs have been played in every concert this tour thus far, and many have gotten relative many plays. My aim is to hit over 80% on the 2 coming show in Bergen, Norway (July 23/24).

  • I will limit my playlist to 35 songs, and the list might change on every update.
  • playlist expanded to include 46 songs – on july 20
  • playlist expanded to include 47 songs – on july 22
  • I will update after each show

Check JV’s posts about the concerts in Bergen:

Bergen Concert 1 – July 23

Bergen Concert 2 – July 24

Update12 – July 26

Numbers not updated… only setlist score. Bergen concerts were my goal. No updates will follow. We have to focus on the upcoming “øyafestivalen” in Oslo in 1,5 weeks 🙂 Both JV’s will attend all 4 days.

Today: Charlie Rich passed away in 1995 – 17 years ago

From Wikipedia:

Charles (Charlie) Rich (December 14, 1932 – July 25, 1995) was an American country music singer and musician. A Grammy Award winner, his eclectic-style of music was often hard to classify in a single genre, playing in the rockabilly, jazz, blues, country, and gospel genres.

In the latter part of his life, Rich acquired the nickname The Silver Fox. He is perhaps best remembered for a pair of 1973 hits, “Behind Closed Doors” and “The Most Beautiful Girl“. “The Most Beautiful Girl” topped the U.S. country singles charts, as well as the pop singles charts.

From Allmusic (Stephen Thoma Erlewine):

Charlie Rich was simultaneously one of the most critically acclaimed and most erratic country singers of post-World War II era. Rich had all the elements of being one of the great country stars of the ’60s and ’70s, but his popularity never matched his critical notices. What made him a critical favorite also kept him from mass success. Throughout his career, Rich willfully bended genres, fusing country, jazz, blues, gospel, rockabilly, and soul. Though he had 45 country hits in a career that spanned nearly four decades, he became best-known for his lush, Billy Sherrill-produced countrypolitan records of the early ’70s. Instead of embracing the stardom those records brought him, Rich shunned it, retreating into semiretirement by the ’80s.

Bruce Springsteen – Bergen Show1 – July 23

Fantastic Bruce show… as expected.

But I have a very strong feeling that tonight’s show will be even better (and longer)….

Here are my “votes”:

Hallgeir will update this post with his comments & some pictures tomorrow.

Well, so how do I do this?

Bruce Springsteen concerts are something else, always good, often great. The concert was a 6 out of 6, but it was very “showy” and vey 80’s oriented, nothing wrong with that, but I miss a few songs…

The show was fantastic (as expected) and very Born in the USA bent (7 songs!) Bruce flirted with the audience, it was a great show for the casual fan. Actually it was a great show for any one, Bruce and the band were in great form

My top 10 songs of the evening:

1. Thunder Road
2. Promised LAnd
3. For You (Egil clearly doesn’t know what he’s talking about ;))
4. Because the night
5. Born to Run
6. Badlands
7. The River
8. Atlantic City
9. Spirit in the night
10. Born in the USA (what an Anthem this is!)
