After multiple night stands and over six hours to make an impact in the five cities they've visited, on February 19th, 2014, Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band were given their toughest tour task yet: Do it in just one night.

E Street Review: February 16th, 2014 – Melbourne, AUS – AAMI Park

The first night in Melbourne was an exciting affair full of surprises and great playing, and for their participation in the show the audience deserved every second of it.

Three nights after the Cape Town finale, Springsteen and The E Street Band made one final stop in South Africa before heading towards Oceania.

Bruce Springsteen Live Downloads Review: January 29th, 2014 – Cape Town, SA – Bellville Velodrome

Following the fourteen premieres and emotional intensity of night two, you couldn't be blamed for thinking Springsteen and The E Street would take it easy on this final night inside the Bellville Velodrome.
