No. 5: ‘Seaside Bar Song’ – Top Bruce Springsteen 2012 Tour Rarities

As we saw when he took a break mid-song to drink a fan’s beer, anything can happen when Bruce Springsteen plays Philadelphia. On the ‘Working on a Dream’ tour in 2009, he even opened a concert with ‘The Price You Pay,’ which hadn’t been performed since 1981. Anybody going to his two-night stand at the Wells Fargo Center should have expected the unexpected.

On the first night, March 28, Springsteen broke out ‘Seaside Bar Song,’ which was recorded for 1974’s ‘The Wild, the Innocent and the E Street Shuffle’ but not released until 1998’s ‘Tracks’ box set. Rarely performed by the E Street Band, it was a staple of his holiday benefit shows in Asbury Park in 2001 and 2003, where he was backed by the Max Weinberg 7.

Next: 'Lion's Den' / 'Bishop Danced'
