San Sebastian 2nd June 2012 - show 29

 Donostia is the Basque name for San Sebastian

So back to Sunny Spain.  Well not all that sunny as it turns out.

Another show for which I can't find a decent review so you will have to put up with my observations again.  

It's quite a laborious task updating the spreadsheet but it does make things, which wouldn't normally be obvious, jump out at me. I had a feeling today that the set lists are beginning to get a bit 'samey'.  Sometimes, when I analyse a bit more closely, I find I'm wrong but here's what stood out for me. 

Born In The USA played at the last eight shows
Hungry Heart played at the last four shows 
The River played at the last five shows
Spirit In The Night played at the last six shows
Working On The Highway played at six out of the last eight shows
Seven Night to Rock played at three out of the last four shows. I think the first time was a sign. Maybe Bruce took it as a sign that we want to hear more of it.  Not me - even though my name gets a mention.

Save My Love has also been played twice in a row.  I hope Bruce keeps this one in. 

On the other hand The Rising and We Are Alive were missing from the set for the first time. A disappointment for Mike who always wants to here The Rising.  

And ... does Bruce always play Who'll Stop The Rain if it's peeing it down?

OK OK so I sound like a right whinge -  but as we all know it doesn't matter what our man sings when you are actually there.  It's always going to be an amazing experience.

Tramp Vanessa Huggett puts it perfectly:-

Just looking at the set list doesn't do it justice. It was a fantastic show. That was the best Backstreets I've heard for years.Plus the lightening and rain made it an amazing experience. Anyone else would have stayed back on the stage but Bruce was out there all night! Finally I got LOHAD !!!!!

Love this clip even though it's only half a song - the way the audience gets it straight away and Bruce jumping up and down at the beginning. Blimey it's raining!
