Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band began their The River tour last night (Jan. 16) at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh. The three-hour, 20-minute, 34-song set (see below) featured a full-album performance of 1980's The River, and a second half comprised mostly of longtime live favorites.

Springsteen had previously only played The River in its entirety once before, on Nov. 8, 2009 at Madison Square Garden. While "Hungry Heart," "Out in the Street," "The Ties That Bind," "Two Hearts," "Cadillac Ranch" and "Ramrod" have regularly featured in his setlists over the years, many of the double-LP's other 14 songs have rarely been heard live since 1981.

They began the show with "Meet Me in the City" (embedded above), an outtake from those sessions that was included on the seven-disc The Ties That Bind: The River Collection boxed set that was released late in 2015 before launching into the album. After "Wreck on the Highway," they launched into "Badlands," which kicked off a flurry of songs that regularly form the backbone of their sets before ending the main set with "Thunder Road."

After paying tribute to David Bowie with a cover of "Rebel Rebel," they headed into the homestretch, including "Dancing in the Dark," "Born to Run" and "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)." The evening ended with a second cover, the Isley Brothers' "Shout."

We've got video of a handful of the songs below. The next stop on the tour will be Chicago's United Center on Tuesday, Jan. 19. You can see all the dates here.
