Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band’s summer tour has been one for the record books. On Wednesday night in Philadelphia the band performed for four hours, four minutes, making it their longest U.S. show ever, reports Billboard.
The concert, at Citizens Bank Park, was four minutes longer than another record-setting night from the same tour; the band’s hometown show at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on Aug. 30, was four hours long. Their record is still four hours, six minutes, which was set in 2012 in Helsinki, Finland.
Springsteen’s Philadelphia set featured 34 songs, beginning with 10 selections from Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J. and The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle. The show also included The Boss’ Academy Award-winning song, “Streets of Philadelphia.”
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band continue their The River tour on Friday with another show in the City of Brotherly Love.
