Who Knows What's Next?

It's looking more and more as if this Springsteen tour will be remembered less as the "Working on a Dream Tour" than it will be known as the "Stump the Band" tour.

The trend began at the tail end of last year's "Magic" tour, when Bruce started pulling hand-made signs out of the audience once or twice each night (sometimes more) to play something from way back in his catalogue, or a golden oldie that hadn't been part of the set list for years.

This year, things have really gotten wild - a week or so ago he played "I Wanna Be Sedated," and last night in Philadelphia he played "London Calling."

All of which leads one to wonder what's next: Sex Pistols? Flipper? X? Fear? These days, who knows?
