Yeah someone made a sign that just said "Bruce Play Piano" and had this huge three-quarters silhouette of Bruce's face, and sure enough, he did a solo piano version of "For You." They turned the lights all the way up for all of the song "Born To Run," which was unfortunate because last year I thought the punctuations of the "WHOAH!"s with the upping of the house-lights was great, if corny. The guy on trumpet definitely introduced "Rosalita" with a trumpet solo version of "Saint Louis Blues." Yeah man it was tight as heck!

This concert was about 195 minutes long, holy cow! Many of these ("For You," "Backstreets," "Mountain Of Love," "Drive All Night," "Little Queenie") were by request. Check out the length of that encore! The whole show was unstoppable. Most excellent. I saw Steve Kozel, Kiley Lewis, Eric Enger, and Nicole Montgomery there, they were sitting in our section. Thanks, Bill!
