Springsteen: The 25 Most Likely Tracks

Arts Editor and Senior Writer (many years until 2012)
If you've sworn off social media, grown your fingernails long and replaced bathroom visits with nearby jars, you might not be aware Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have announced their first Australian tour dates in a decade, including indoor arena dates in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne and a special outdoor performance at Victoria's iconic Hanging Rock.

That's the old news, then. But with a career spanning 43 years, 17 studio albums and 70 singles, what's he actually going to play? He tends not to stick exclusively to the 'greatest hits', and even if he did, there's just no way he could fit all of them into one show (even if that one show does run for four hours, as has been known to happen).

According to setlist.fm, Springsteen has played 101 shows in 2012, giving us a hefty sample size. These are the 25 tracks that have found their way into the show most often.

1. We Take Care Of Our Own (Play Count: 27)

2. Waitin' On A Sunny Day (21)

3. Wrecking Ball (21)

4. Death To My Hometown (21)
