From live streams during the concert, it looked like it was a beautiful day for the outdoor festival setting. The setlist was pretty standard, as it often is for the festivals where Springsteen is on the bill with a variety of acts. Patti was there; Stevie was not. In a weird turn of events, Steve VanZandt tweeted during the concert, saying he wouldn't be able to make any of this year's American dates and thanking Tom Morello. Is qualifying these dates as "American" a clue or is he just referring to the ones the band already played off U.S. soil.
