Also the "the harder they come" was plaued together with Bruce.The Animals' Eric Burdon performs with Springsteen for the first time in an appearance that was arranged following Bruce's passionate speech about The Animals' influence on his music. "This Land Is Your Land" (last played with the band at the closing show of the Born In The U.S.A. Tour) closes the set, with the accompaniment of Joe Ely, Alejandro Escovedo, Tom Morello, Garland Jeffreys, Arcade Fire, and The Low Anthem. "My City Of Ruins" includes "People Get Ready".
