Bruce Springsteen and the E Street band kicked off their fall tour last night at the Hartford Civic Center in Connecticut with "Radio Nowhere," the first single off their new album Magic, then launched into a twenty-three-song set that didn't veer significantly from the set list they played during last week's rehearsal shows. In addition to gold-standard Springsteen hits like "Darkness on the Edge of Town" and "Badlands," the band also performed "Town Called Heartbreak" from Patti Scialfa's latest solo album, Play It As It Lays.

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
