Bruce Springsteen Brings the "Dream" To California

By |

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band kicked off their Working on a Dream tour last night at San Jose, California's HP Pavilion. The set clocked in at two hours and 40 minutes according to Bruce fansite Backstreets, who also provided the night's set list (see below), and noted its similarity to the set the band rocked at their second Asbury Park rehearsal gig (Rolling Stone was at Springsteen's first rehearsal). For the story inside the Bruce rehearsals, grab the new issue (on newsstands now!), and check out our interviews with Steven Van Zandt and Max Weinberg's drummer son Jay, Springsteen's "secret weapon" online. Get a look at the opening-night photos here and the songs below:
