Bruce Springsteen is down to the last show on his European tour, Tuesday night in Helsinki, Finland, but not before squeezing in six more tour premieres over two nights in Gothenburg, Sweden.
On Friday it was "Girls in Their Summer Clothes" and "Drive All Night" -- a video of which was posted on Springsteen's website -- followed by "Lost in the Flood," "Frankie," "Where the Bands Are" and "Jungleland" on Saturday. While "Jungleland" is no stranger to a Springsteen show, Saturday's performance was notable because the song is known for the late Clarence Clemons' saxophone solo and it was the first time the E Street Band performed it since his death in June of last year. Clarence's nephew, E Street Band sax player Jake Clemons, did his uncle proud, delivering a spot-on rendition of the solo. When it was done, Springsteen held back on his vocals so Jake could get the applause he deserved.
Springsteen ended Friday's show with "Twist and Shout," but not before saying, "We can't leave without the stadium breaker, so let's test the stadium!," a reference to his shows there on June 8th and 9th, 1985 when the audience jumped so much that they caused damage to the stadium, which was then shut down and rebuilt.
