Bruce Springsteen summer 2012 concerts – Playlist

Based on setlists from all “Wrecking Ball Tour” shows, and considering the latest trends, I’ve put up a list of songs and their estimated probability to get played in the coming concerts. I’ve also created a spotify playlist.

This is off course estimates and Bruce alters his setlist for every concert. But some songs have been played in every concert this tour thus far, and many have gotten relative many plays. My aim is to hit over 80% on the 2 coming show in Bergen, Norway (July 23/24).

  • I will limit my playlist to 35 songs, and the list might change on every update.
  • playlist expanded to include 46 songs – on july 20
  • playlist expanded to include 47 songs – on july 22
  • I will update after each show

Check JV’s posts about the concerts in Bergen:

Bergen Concert 1 – July 23

Bergen Concert 2 – July 24

Update12 – July 26

Numbers not updated… only setlist score. Bergen concerts were my goal. No updates will follow. We have to focus on the upcoming “øyafestivalen” in Oslo in 1,5 weeks :-) Both JV’s will attend all 4 days.
