The Saints formed in Brisbane in 1974 and were punk before punk. Their 1976 debut song ‘I’m Stranded’ was the first punk song released outside of the USA ahead of The Clash and The Sex Pistols.

Bruce paid homage to The Saints by placing their 1986 classic into second position in his setlist.

Springsteen started the Wrecking Ball tour exactly one year ago to the day he reached Brisbane. It kicked off in Austin, Texas during SXSW 2012.

Special guest guitarist on this tour is Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello who is filling in for Steve Van Zandt who has television commitments back home and could not make this leg of the tour. Springsteen is performing ‘The Ghost of Tom Joad’ in the set, also recorded by Tom in Rage Against The Machine.
