Once again, the setlist structure gets switched. This time around, there was no marching band used at all.
Rockin’ In The Free World opens the show!
Wild In The Steets is placed early, as is Hey God. Heavy wind had caused massive sound fluctuations over both nights which lead to the band having had problems in working the audience the previous show. This is probably why they went for a full-blown rockin’ start this time around.
Lie To Me Is back and gets favored over Diamond Ring / Bed Of Roses.
The snippet of Gloria returns.
All I Want Is Everything is dropped for the first time since the band’s broadcasted show in Yokohama in May.
I’d Die For You replaces I’ll Be There For You.
Runaway is moved down the main set and follows Lay Your Hands On Me.
Keep The Faith doesn’t close the main set, but the first encore where it takes the slot of Hey God.
Drift Away and My Guitar Lies Bleeding In My Arms are dropped. Instead, Richie sings his solo track, Stranger In This Town, in the second encore.
Damned moves down from the main set to the final encore where also Blaze Of Glory is added.
Bed Of Roses had initially been dropped and the band didn’t plan on doing it, but changed it on the spot due to multiple requests and had it open their final encore.
Some recording from that night (not mine).
