Bruce Springsteen Plays Melbourne And Rosie Comes Out Tonight

‘Rosalita’ (Come Out Tonight), the one time centrepiece of a Bruce Springsteen live performance, has made its second appearance on the E Street Band Australian tour.

Springsteen performed the song at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena in the encore of this second Melbourne show on Tuesday night.

‘Rosilita’ is arguably the song that earned Springsteen his reputation as one of the greatest live acts in the world. For near on a decade the song closed every Springsteen show but in 1984 Bruce suddenly dropped it from the show because he wanted to, (as biographer Dave Marsh said), “disrupt the ritual expectations of the fanatic fans”. Rosie didn’t make a regular appearance in the E Street Band shows again until The Rising tour of 2003.
