At Tuesday show in Philadelphia, Bruce Springsteen plays Price You Pay

Quite the setlist for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band at their fourth and final night at the Philadelphia Spectrum on Tuesday.
A particular 31-song, 3-hour-and-20 minute show with many highlights including Bruce opening with a song that many fans have had at the top of their request list: "The Price You Pay" from "The River."
It was the first time "Price You Play" had been played since May 27, 1981 in Brighton, Great Britain.

In addition to the entire "Born In The U.S.A." album being played, Bruce broke out "Higher and Higher" a 1967 hit by Jackie Wilson that the E Street Band use to play in 1977 and "Save the Last Dance for Me" a song he played one time on the "Magic" Tour.
Also Vini Lopez, the original drummer for the E Street Band, played on "Spirit In the Night."
