Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band capped the opening leg of their 2023 international tour tonight; a cross-country 28-show run which marked their first North American dates together since 2016. Kicking off February 1 in Tampa, Florida and concluding tonight in Newark, New Jersey - the high-energy performances featured Springsteen and The E Street Band backed nightly by The E Street Horns and The E Street Choir. Tour setlists have ranged from house-rocking staples like "Dancing In The Dark," "Badlands" and "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out" to live debuts for "Ghosts," "Nightshift," and "Last Man Standing." Interspersed throughout were special additions for each show - including the first performance of "If I Was The Priest" since 1972, covers of The Standells' "Dirty Water" and Jimmy Cliff's "Trapped," and the long-awaited return of "Jungleland," "Jersey Girl," and "Born in the U.S.A."

Springsteen and The E Street Band will return to North America from August through December; including multiple nights in each of Chicago, Philadelphia, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pittsburgh, Toronto, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Beforehand, they'll kick off the first of 31 European shows on April 28 in Barcelona. Find a full list of dates here:
