Bruce Springsteen performed “Seeds” for the first time since 2016

Another surprise in Bruce Springsteen's 2024 tour lineup. Back on stage after health problems that forced him to take a long rest, the New Jersey rocker seems to have thought of the new shows as answers to those who had long accused him of having, compared to his standards, a set list that was too “rigid” and not to introduce anything new And so if ten days ago in Inglewood, California, he opened the show by playing a cover of “Boom, Boom, I'm Gonna Shoot You Right Down”, a blues classic by John Lee Hooker, also bringing back “Tougher than the rest” set list after seven years, during the concert held last Friday on the stage of the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut, the rock star returned to surprise the fans.

He did so by bringing back to the set list a song like “Seeds”, a song that he recorded in 1983 but which he never published either in the unreleased albums or in the various collections of outtakes (there are only live recordings of the piece, such as those contained in “Live 1975 /1985” and “London Calling: Live in Hyde Park”). .

Springsteen hadn't played “Seeds” since 2016. The last time the Boss performed the song live in concert was seven years ago at his show at Wembley Stadium in London.

The new tour of the voice of “Born in the USA” will return to Italy next summer, one year after the last visit to our country. Springsteen will be the protagonist of a double live performance at the San Siro Stadium in Milan on 1 and 3 June 2024.
