What’s the emotional centerpiece of Bruce Springsteen’s 1980 double album The River? It’s arguably “Drive All Night,” the eight-minute-plus slow burner that finds The Boss at his most romantic and longing.
Check out the video of the song’s tour debut from night one at Gothenburg, Sweden’s Ullevi Stadium, featuring a lilting sax solo from Jake Clemons. The show also saw the debut of “Jungleland” and the rarities “Frankie” (a Born In The U.S.A. outtake) and “Where The Bands Are” (a River outtake), as well as a cover of Credence Clearwater Revival’s “Who’ll Stop The Rain.”
