Echoing Springsteen’s Thursday night show at Kia Forum, his wife, Patti Scialfa, came on stage for performances of “Tougher Than the Rest” and “Fire.” Other notable songs in the setlist included “The Promised Land,” “Hungry Heart,” “Backstreets,” and Springsteen’s first performance of “Open All Night” in a decade.

Per usual, the encore was stacked with classics like “Born to Run,” “Rosalita (Come Out Tonight),” “Glory Days,” and “Dancing in the Dark.” See the full setlist below.

Springsteen and the E Street Band are slated to tour throughout North America, the UK, and Europe for much of the remainder of 2024. Grab your seats for North American dates here and international shows here.

Morello and Springsteen have been occasional collaborators since 2008, when the Rage Against the Machine guitarist first joined Springsteen and the E Street Band on stage. The following year, Morello was a special guest during Springsteen’s closing set at the 25th Anniversary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame concert at Madison Square Garden.


After playing guitar on two tracks from Springsteen’s 2012 album, Wrecking Ball, Morello filled in for E Street Band guitarist Steve Van Zandt during the Australian leg of the supporting tour. He followed up by contributing heavily to the 2014 album High Hopes — including a re-recording of “The Ghost of Tom Joad” — and once again stood in for Van Zandt on the “High Hopes Tour.”

In 2021, Morello recruited Springsteen and Eddie Vedder for a cover of AC/DC’s Highway to Hell,” which appears on his solo album, The Atlas Underground Fire.
