Springsteen Anaheim Concert Review

Wow! It's hard to put into words the performance of Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band over at the Honda Center last night. For a man who is knocking on the door of turning 60(he's 58 right now), the energy that Bruce has is just amazing. I want what he's on when I'm 58. The show started at about 8:30pm and didn't end until about 11:30PM. I was absolutely blown away by the set list he broke out:

Light Of Day
Radio Nowhere
Lonesome Day
Gypsy Biker
Murder Incorporated
Magic
Trapped
Reason To Believe
Because The Night
She's The One
Livin' In The Future
The Promised Land
Working On The Highway
The Ghost Of Tom Joad
Devil's Arcade
The Rising
Last To Die
Long Walk Home
Badlands
Out In The Street
Girls In Their Summer Clothes
Rosalita
Born To Run
Ramrod
American Land

We got to hear Trapped, Rosalita, Ramrod, Light of Day, Badlands, Out In The Street, etc. Damn! My ears are still ringing this morning. I'd never been to a concert at the Honda Center. I thought the acoustics were great. The best part of the night was scoring FRONT ROW tickets right before the show started. That didn't suck. All and all, it was another epic night of Rock n'Roll from the Boss.

    I saw the Tuesday show. Slightly different set list (opened with Thunder Road, e.g.). I noticed the girls behind the stage mentioned by another blogger (springsteenInAnaheim.wordpress.com). Does anyone know who they were?
