All in the Family: Their mom must have been proud. Nils displayed his wide instrumental range, playing harp, keyboard, guitar, and lap steel; his rendition of "Flight of the Bumblebee" on accordion was a huge crowd pleaser.
A fan in the opening night crowd called out, "Bullets Fever"! Nils sang a few lines of his basketball anthem and told the story of how he wrote that song and took it to local Washington DC stations, whereupon it became a big local hit. Of course, the team is now the Wizards. The performance concluded with a great version of his sublime favorite "Shine Silently.

Upon further examination, though, it's a fine selection, capturing the soaring wrap-up of a successful first leg of the U. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band blew into the Windy City in late September for three shows over four nights, riding the momentum of a lengthy stretch of East Coast shows that included a record-setting show home state residency at the Meadowlands and the just-completed six-show stand in their stronghold of Philadelphia, where the Boss turned Unlike lucky Easterners who by then already had plenty of drivable opportunities to see the band, Chicagoans were still thirsty to finally witness Springsteen playing with the E Street Band again.
It had been awhile: The anticipation for the E Street Band's return was goosed by the giddiness of finally being able to see the reunion that, for a solid decade, we didn't know would ever happen.
The fans who filled the spacious United Center for three sold-out shows gave Bruce and the band a hero's welcome — and the E Streeters responded by making "The House That Michael Jordan Built" their own during their first visit to the arena.
After an off-day following the first two Chicago shows, which capped a demanding stretch of four in five days, the E Street Band returned to the stage on September 30 with renewed energy — and the continued engagement of proving to itself as well as the audience that it wasn't only rediscovering its storied past, but also creating new glory. The Chicago stand saw 42 different songs played, including seven on the final night that weren't played in the first two concerts.
The band slammed into the underplayed "Take 'Em as They Come" to start the night and offered other remarkable rarities as well. Springsteen rewarded the city he first played in as an opener to The Persuasions for five shows at the Quiet Knight with a stunningly beautiful "New York City Serenade.
September - photograph by Mark R. On quite a few occasions Springsteen shouted instructions to the band, followed by urgent scrambling to change guitars. This performance was a prime example of Springsteen making the right calls to form an expertly paced, thematic setlist that had the benefit of strong anchors on this tour.
A highlight was the nightly airing of the fiery three-pack of "Youngstown," "Murder Incorporated," and "Badlands. The main set-closer, a show-stopping, supercharged "Light of Day," nodded to the city's blues tradition with a pedal-to-the-metal shift into John Lee Hooker's "Boom Boom. I'm here to re-educate, to rededicate, to re-confiscate, to resuscitate, to reindoctrinate, to re-sexualate, to re-liberate, to recombobulate with the power, with the glory… with the promise, with the mystery, with the majesty, with the ministry of rock 'n' roll!
The tour's defining emotional highs of "If I Should Fall Behind" and the new spiritual "Land of Hope of Dreams" packed a back-to-back punch as usual, driving home themes of companionship and camaraderie, but on this night they were not the last word. The exhausted frontman gave them a final scene to remember as he laid sprawled on his back on the monitor in front of Max Weinberg's drum kit, his tongue hanging out the side of his mouth.
Then he started turning. For a moment, it looked as if he was trying to kick the bass drum or knock down the entire kit, but he was just gaining leverage to spin on the monitor. He eventually positioned himself upside down and looked at the crowd. The place went nuts. The roar reverberated through the building at least as loud — and maybe even louder — than when Jordan's Bulls won NBA titles here.
Ask the floor that shook. After a mad dash was punctuated by a somersault, Springsteen was still bouncing off the stage when the band took its final bows — a crazy ending to an electrifying show. A post shared by Backstreets Magazine backstreetsmag on Sep 6, at 1: Beginning next month, all teachers who attend a TeachRock professional-development session will continue to receive the same cool "stipend" for their attendance — two free tickets to the Little Steven concert accompanying the session — plus some wicked-cool swag, in the form of the newly added official teachers-only Teacher Appreciation Tour T-shirt.
Stevie himself provides all of the details including the shirt in the video above. They made that sentence up. We will tour forever. See the itinerary at littlesteven. Some tracks will be familiar to most fans not dwelling under a rock — Rick Springfield's "Bruce" and Eric Church's "Springsteen" made the first list, of course — but there are plenty of rarer cuts gathered here.
