what rarity will Bruce play next?

April 7, 2008

During last week’s stop in Vancouver, Bruce and the Band dug out “None but the Brave” a song from the Born in the USA sessions in 1983-84 that never made it onto an album until the Essential Bruce Springsteen LP which came out in 2003.

This song had never been played live in a concert setting with the full band–until the Vancouver show.

The big question on everyone’s mind as they gear up for the shows in Anaheim is: what rarities are in store for us in the upcoming shows????

On the Bruce boards, people argue and debate all the time about which songs he will play and why. Bruce is a master of harnessing the crowds energy, of building them up to a frenzy, and quieting them down. So what he chooses will fit in to the theme or the mood of the show he is creating that night for the blessed few there.

Which brings us back to the question of–what rarities will we hear in Anaheim?

Will it be “Something in the Night”? This 1974 gem from Born to Run has rarely been played in concert., but he played it last night in San Jose, CA.

Will it be “Trapped”? This song was part of the USA for Africa album, and has not shown up on one of Bruce’s, and while he played it a lot in 1984, he hasn’t played it much since–until the Portland and Seattle shows.

Will it be “Held Up without a Gun,” the 1981 B side of the Hungry Heart single? That’s the number one heartful hope of the Big Monkey. But he would settle for “Take It as They Come” an outtake that showed up on Tracks, the 4 disc box set that was out in 2000.

What’s in store for us?? What rarity do you want to hear? Post your comments below!
