Set List: Bruce Springsteen Breaks His U.S. Record for Third Time in a Week with 4 Hour 1 Minute Show

by VVN Music

Bruce Springsteen has, once again, broken his record for longest show on U.S. soil with a Tuesday night concert at MetLive Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.

Springsteen first broke the record on Tuesday, August 23 at MetLife Stadium with a 3 hour 52 minute show. On Thursday, August 25, he was back in East Rutherford and turned in a 4 hour show before breaking that record by one minute last night.

He still fell five minutes short of his world record 4 hour and 6 minute show in Helsinki, Finland during the Wrecking Ball tour.

Even though this was a stop on The River Tour 2016, it did not feature a full playing of the album, nor was the set list even close to the previous show at the venue. Bruce opened with the same song, New York City Serenade but the rest of the set only included ten other songs from Thursday's show out of the 34 performed.

It was a big night for the Born in the U.S.A. album with seven songs, including a run of five in the middle of the main set. He also hit on five songs from the early The Wild, The Innocent & the E-Street Shuffle including two that came in as sign requests and a duet of Spirit in the Night with Rickie Lee Jones.

Overall, except for The Rising and a number of covers, Springsteen ignored anything that he recorded in the last 21 years since his first Greatest Hits album in 1995.
