One of the show’s standout tracks is “The Promised Land,” which is full of spirit and features a stunning solo by the great Clarence Clemons. “My Hometown” also carries a lot of weight, as Springsteen talks about his dreams of “creating a world without torture and disappearances,” without brutal dictators like Agosto Pinochet (Chile) and Anastasio Somoza (Nicaragua), before easing into the famous ballad.
The group closes the set with a powerful version of the Bob Dylan protest song, “Chimes of Freedom.” It is a hopeful way to end a special set that shows how much of a success the tour really was. Obviously, Springsteen has played many, many shows, but this is certainly one to cherish.
