Bruce Springsteen played his second of three shows at Jersey’s MetLife Stadium last night (8/25), after beginning the current leg of his tour there on Tuesday (8/23). He once again opened with “New York City Serenade” with a string section and closed with a cover of Tom Waits’ “Jersey Girl,” and there were some differences worked in to the four hours in between. Stuff we got last night that we didn’t get on Tuesday includes “Night,” “Thunder Road,” “Darkness on the Edge of Town,” “No Surrender,” “Lost in the Flood,” and more. This one also got appearances on several songs by Tom Morello, who’s in town for Prophets of Rage shows.

Bruce’s third and final MetLife show is 8/30. Watch a video of Tom joining Bruce on 8/25, and check out the full setlist:
