'Born To Run' on 1988 Tunnel of Love Express tour

On 1988's Tunnel of Love tour, Bruce Springsteen had grown weary of his touring routine and decided to make some changes. He had the E Street Band reverse their standard spots onstage, and he played "Born to Run" solo acoustic. "When I sing it now I feel young and I feel old at the same time," he said. "The song kind of opens up and lets in all the years and breathes it in sort of gracefully."
