Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band have officially kicked off their 2013 European tour! Right before the show, Bruce came out and performed a pre-show similar for the fans who were waiting patiently. That set can be found at the bottom of the page! They started the actual show off with a nice surprise with Bruce not even opening the show. Sounds weird right? Well, technically Little Steven kicked off the show with him singing "My Kind of Town" in which he dedicated to Norway. Steve missed out on the Australian tour last month due to filming his show "Lilyhammer" in Norway. This was a  class act of Bruce to let him do this. And it loosens up the crowd with a good laugh, win win. Right from there they kicked into the great Bruce, Steve duet of "Two Hearts." A song that had become quite the buzz over in Australia has made its return to the setlist, "Better Days." I was getting a lot of tweets during the show saying how much people love this song live and it looks like it could stay in the set for future shows to come. The other tour debut of the night was "Follow That Dream" which was sound-checked before the show. All in all, this was a great show and a great way to kick off the European tour. You can get the full setlist by heading on over to the Setlists page! You won't be disappointed!
