Bruce performed this song 2 times:
1988-05-03 - SHORELINE AMPHITHEATRE, MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA
Bruce allows a few hundred people in early who had been in line since noon to hear the last song of the soundcheck, Roy Orbison's "Crying". Brucebase has previously also listed "Big Boss Man" as being soundchecked, but this has been retracted pending verification. The soundcheck, recorded seems to be 'Dimples' instead of 'Big Boss Man'
1988-05-06 - TACOMA DOME, TACOMA, WA
During the " tunnel of love tour" . The soundcheck includes Slim Harpo's "Rainin' In My Heart
" (not the Buddy Holly song with the same title), "Big Boss Man
", "Let It Be Me
", "Cathy's Clown" and "Crying In The Rain
" (both also The Everly Brothers) and both "Rock And Roll Music
" and "Sweet Little Sixteen
" by Chuck Berry. The second song of the soundcheck has historically been titled "The Way You Walk", however a little investigation has revealed it to be John Lee Hooker's "Dimples
". Perhaps Bruce had considered including the song in the Express Tour set, but instead settled on "Boom Boom
" which will be premiered four days after this show in Bloomington, MN.
