Cleveland 11/10/09

Two days after performing The River at MSG, Bruce returns to longtime hotbed Cleveland, Ohio and makes a full-album performance of Born To Run the centerpiece of this fine Working On A Dream tour stop. In addition to all eight songs from his 1975 breakthrough, Springsteen and the E Street Band deliver “Prove It All Night,” a radically rearranged “Red Headed Woman,” “Radio Nowhere,” “Can’t Help Falling In Love” and what is arguably the sweetest version to date of “Back In Your Arms.” Trumpet player Curt Ramm guests on several songs, including an encore-closing double-shot of “(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher” and “Rosalita.”
