Back to the land of packed venues, a full house in Connecticut included Jesse Malin in the crowd (to whom Bruce dedicated "The Promise") and Suicide's Alan Vega, songwriter of Bruce's show closer, who also got a shout-out. The longest set yet, at 27 songs, stretching out thanks to some serious piano action. Seven songs at the keys tonight, including tour premieres "All That Heaven Will Allow" and "Nothing Man," both on electric piano. A slight flashback to the Meadowlands, as some sound difficulties before "Racing in the Street" had some in the crowd yelling for a fix; Bruce offered to come out and slap them around. But lessons have been learned in the two months since Jersey, as Springsteen was quickly told about the problem, and he addressed it soon after: "I found out there was a buzz in the P.A. system, and if that's what you were shouting about, I apologize." (Of course, he couldn't resist adding, "If it wasn't that, go fuck yourself.") More highlights: "Highway 29," "Lost in the Flood," "Spare Parts" on bottleneck 12-string... not quite reaching the high bar set in Buffalo for the rarity hunters, but if a measly two tour premieres don't do it for ya, maybe you need some slapping around.
