The song was saved, and with great humor Bruce added, "Before you commit suicide, let me play you this next one." "Better Days," "The Ties That Bind," and "Out in the Street" made a mighty triumvirate. Brisbane might have to sharpen up its skills in the pit, but the fans got a crowd-surfing Bruce back to the stage and in one piece eventually.

Tonight delivered pretty much everything you'd expect at a Springsteen gig.

Hits, rarities, requests, and a man and his band who are prepared night after night to go out on a limb and create magic. It gets built, it gets filled with concertgoers, it empties out, it gets taken apart, and kangaroos return to eat the grass and perhaps catch a buzz from so much spilled booze.

Because the hillside that on this day was crammed with 20,000 people, food trucks galore, merch stands, and, of course, a massive stage, is normally empty. Such a massive, one-off production comes with risk. Will people drive an hour north of Melbourne to see a show?

Spellbinding, this has become one of the signature moments of the tour.

The full house was in a particularly joyful mood as Bruce and the band kicked it to a rousing and rare "Lucky Town." Reaching for a sign, Springsteen broke out the tour debut of "Janey Don't You Lose Heart" next.

"We're gonna get our asses into this thing if it kills us," Bruce announced.
