NOW I am counting myself lucky!
When the River tour started in the US in 2016 I was so in awe. "Bruce is coming to Europe as well. I have a ticket for Berlin. Every show so far has started with 'MEET ME IN THE CITY'. I am going to hear this song live!"
By now we know... I could not have been more wrong.
When the tour moved to Europe, suddenly "Badlands" was all the rage again, as a concert opener.
But: He managed to make interesting choices as well, still.
"Incident" in Dublin, "Prove it '78" in Munich... so I read during the SPL Setlist Watch.
When I finally saw the show I had a ticket for... Berlin... he started with "Adam Raised A Cain." The "Dead Body" of DOTEOT.
I never liked that song much, and was frustrated when he opened the show with it. Happy to know there is people out there who think otherwise.
