Bruce Springsteen & the E St. Band- Detroit medley- Dallas 2-10-23

Bruce Springsteen’s current E Street Band has so much depth at guitar and vocals that no less than three members can get sidelined by COVID-19 on the same night and not miss a lick. That’s precisely what happened in Dallas in February 2023 when guitarist/vocalist Steven Van Zandt, acoustic guitar/vocalist Patti Scialfa, and violinist Suzee Tyrell all busted out at the COVID-19 blackjack table, requiring the more-than-capable Nils Lofgren to step up admirably. Springsteen thanked the sold out crowd for the support by calling an audible in the fourth quarter, a rare performance of the Detroit medley “Devil with the Blue Dress On/CC Rider/Good Golly Miss Molly/Jenny Take a Ride”. -Redbeard
