"Thunder Road" features only Bruce and Roy Bittan. Tom Morello joins Bruce for "Jack of All Trades" and "The Ghost of Tom Joad". John Fogerty joins Bruce for "The Promised Land". Paul McCartney joins Bruce for "I Saw Her Standing There" and "Twist and Shout". The show is cut short by London authorities who, due to a 10:30 p.m. curfew, turned off the sound after "Twist and Shout" even though Bruce clearly wasn't done.

This was a biter sweet day for me, i lost my best mate to cancer earlier in the year & he was a Beatles fanatic,so when Sir Paul come on & joined Bruce i got a lump in my throat thinking about my old mucker Bill, (we attended dozens of gigs over the years together).The day itself was superb musically.....Bruce was in fine form as usual, some nice surprises (for me anyway) in the set-list, first time hearing "Take them...." Well done to the geezer from Spain. Electic version of "Tom Joad" & to top it all off the two songs with "Sir Paul" i didnt think my jaw could get much lower but after the idiot pulled the plug ....IT DID!!!! Anyway thanks again to Bruce & the band it was a privilege to have been there.
