I know this isn't metal at all, but since there has been alot of discussion about bands' setlists being too short and/or not "deep" enough, check out this set by The Boss! Some of "our" bands could learn a thing or two from him!!

An acoustic mini-set for the people already in the venue?! Now I HAVE to go see him when he comes back and hope he does it again

wow that's a long set, and he talks a lot, anyone have any idea as to how long this show was?

I'll be the first to admit I really don't know a whole lot of Bruce, but I will say I think his Superbowl Halftime performance was the last really great halftime show.

I HATE Bruce and the E-Street band, The Silver Bullet Band (Bob Seger) is way better ;)

Anyway, this is one long ass setlist though. He does switch it up quite alot which is nice for the fans.

According to the article, the show clocked in at 4 hours,6 minutes with no breaks!

Old friend of mine seen him for the third time in Dublin recently, and said about a third of the set was stuff he hadn't seen before, real deep cuts. The show was great apparently, and there were solo spots all over the shop, basically if a player felt like taking a little longer on a particular solo, they could, the whole band are super tight and it's genuinely not just Bruce who gets center stage. I do know his band are not to be snuffed at anyway though, he has a powerhouse of funk, jazz and rock session players, most of which have been with him for years and years.

I was going to say that Rush's set is about 27 songs and they total about 2 hours and 40 minutes of playing time so how could adding 6 extra songs add another 90 minutes to the set? But I can see how if there are solos all over the place. That is too amazing for sure!
