On The Road In Dublin

After the rousing success at the New Orleans Jazz Fest, Bruce takes the whole show on a European tour. On this tour we can expect a pretty regular set list from the Seeger Sessions material with a few slots throughout the show for his own material. The May 5 show in Dublin included Adam Raised A Cain, a perfect choice for this folk/gospel inflected band. A favorite from the Darkness on the Edge of Town album, Bruce opened a few shows on the 2003 tour with a blistering version of this song, including August 13, where yours truly was luckily in attendance.

May 5 Setlist: O Mary Don't You Weep/John Henry/Johnny 99/Old Dan Tucker/Eyes on the Prize/Jesse James/Adam Raised a Cain/Erie Canal/My Oklahoma Home/Mrs. McGrath/How Can a Poor Man Stand Such Times and Live?/Jacob's Ladder/We Shall Overcome/Open All Night/Pay Me My Money Down
Encore: My City of Ruins/Buffalo Gals/You Can Look (But You Better Not Touch)/When the Saints Go Marching In

I'll be on the lookout for some audio, in the meantime here's How Can a Poor Man Stand Such Times and Live? from the Jazz Fest show. It's a depression era song with additional lyrics by Bruce.

Buy the Seeger Sessions

[Correction: In my last post I guessed that Bruce had not played You Can Look since the River Tour. Doh! He played it on his solo acoustic tour a few times last fall. 1,000 pardons!]
