Melbourne Finale

The third and final Melbourne, Australia show was a good one! Kicked off with "Long Walk Home" which I believe has only been played once before in 2012 and I don't think has ever opened a show. I really can't wait for a video to surface on this one as I'm not sure how it would go over as an opener. Straight from there we got a double shot of Magic with "Radio Nowhere." The one and only tour debut of the night came next in "Better Days." This is a song that I thought would fit well on this Wrecking Ball tour, so I'm glad to see this one finally come out of the bag. There were also many other highlighted songs such as "Factory" which was only played in Philadelphia last year but acoustically. This would be the first full band version of the song. The rare "Lost in the Flood" also made an appearance. "Pay Me My Money Down" has seemed to trickle back into the sets in Australia. It seems like Bruce really likes this song recently which I guess isn't a bad thing. He didn't play it too often in 2012. "Jungleland" kicked off the encores and the encore ended with "American Land." The third and final Melbourne show lasted about 3 hours and 3 minutes. Next, to wrap up the Australian tour, is a two night stand in Macedon!
