The Rising Tour was a lengthy, worldwide, top-grossing concert tour featuring Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band that took place in arenas and stadiums over and It followed the release of their album The Rising. Tour preparations began in late July and early August with closed and then semi-open rehearsals, and then several public rehearsal shows, at Asbury Park, New Jersey 's Convention Hallas well as a highly advertised early morning promotional appearance there on NBC 's The Today Show.
The first leg of the tour formally began on August 7, with an opening show in Springsteen's home floor of Continental Airlines Arena in New Jersey. This commenced what Springsteen's management called their "Barnstorming" playing 46 arena shows in 46 different cities in North America 39 and Western Europe 7 through the end of the year, ending on December 17 at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
The idea was to maximize the publicity effect of the tour for aiding sales of the already heavily promoted new album by visiting as many markets as possible. The attendant publicity would only be increased if tickets were hard to come by, which was the case in Springsteen hot spots which were accustomed to multiple-night stands. The strategy appeared to succeed, as The Rising did well commercially and became Springsteen's best-selling album of new material in 15 years.
After a break of more than two months in winter, the second leg of the tour began on February 28, with 7 more one-night stands in the United States. The band then travelled to Australia and New Zealand in March for five shows down under. They then quickly returned to North America for 6 more barnstorming shows in April, mostly in Canada. After a three-week break, barnstorming was over and the promised third leg of multiple-show stands was on. The tour went back to Western Europethis time satisfying much pent-up demand by playing 24 shows in May and June, all in stadiums, with multiple dates in cities where necessary.
Shows in Europe were hugely successful, and for example in Scandinavia, shows in Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark sold out in a record two hours. Now it was time for North America to get the same treatment. From mid-July through early October, the band played 33 dates in stadiums with an intentional emphasis on baseball parks as venues in addition to the usual professional football stadiumsmostly composed of multiple-night stands along the Eastern Seaboard where Springsteen was most popular, starting with what would become 10 shows in New Jersey's Rising Power - D.S.B.

Tourand Mighty Rumbling Blues - Barbara Dane - Trouble In Mind visits to icons such as Fenway Park and Dodger Stadium. Not surprisingly, songs from The Rising played a key role in the structure of the tour's shows. Concerts typically began with " The Rising " followed by " Lonesome Day ", both songs about the September 11, terrorist attacks.
New E Streeter Soozie Tyrell 's violin played a prominent role in establishing the texture of Radio Londres - Régïs Boulard* - Streamer numbers, as it would throughout the concert. Two more September 11 songs, "Empty Sky" and "You're Missing" appeared soon after, to continue the mood; the latter featured an extended instrumental coda from the band, led by Danny Federici 's organ.
Typically seven or eight songs into the show, " Waitin' on a Sunny Day " provided the first buoyant, happy moments. Springsteen's first-ever use of recorded backing music took place on the mid-show "Worlds Apart", where Middle Eastern vocals were applied. The main set closer was Rising Power - D.S.B. - U.S. Tour 2003 (DVD) final September 11 number, "Into the Fire", which relevant to the new album's themes emphasized togetherness and praise for sacrifice rather than the pure exuberance of previous tours' closers such as " Rosalita " and " Light of Day ".
A few Rising songs were almost never played during the tour, including "Nothing Man", the quiet "Paradise", and the unusually rhythmic "Let's Be Friends". For the rest Intro (32-32-32) - Various - Ultimix 15 the main set, a mixture of songs from throughout Springsteen's Rising Power - D.S.B.

One consistent mid-show mainstay was " Badlands ", which never failed to bring audiences to their feet. The next-to-last spot in the main set was often reserved for Springsteen playing a heretofore unusual solo piano spot, running through an old classic such as " For You " or " Incident on 57th Street ". First encores of shows were typically fun and upbeat, Rising Power - D.S.B.

The March 22 show at Sydney Cricket Ground featured three large power blackoutsthe first of which came after the opening chords of "War", but the crowd led Springsteen through mass sing-alongs to Max Weinberg's unamplified drums nonetheless.
In the European stadium dates, Rising Power - D.S.B. - U.S. Tour 2003 (DVD) solo piano spot gave way to a rotating epic slot for " Jungleland ", " Racing in the Street ", and the like, and a new high-energy cover " Seven Nights to Rock " became a regular in the encores, as did extended boogie piano solos by Roy Bittan. The final European show in Milan's Stadio San Siro was said by some fans, as well as by Springsteen manager Jon Landauto be "one of the four or five best Bruce shows of all time.
As each show was about to begin, the stage video screens would show Springsteen and the band relaxedly walking in from backstage, while Frank Sinatra 's classic recording of " Summer Wind " was aired. The second encores also brought a treat for audiences, as " Rosalita " made fully regular appearances for the first time since During the ten Giants Stadium shows especially, Springsteen thanked those fans who were attending multiple shows and those who were coming from long distances or out of the country; the advent of robust Bruce-oriented online communities had made these practices easier.
The final Giants Stadium show concluded with a performance of " Jersey Girl ". In the two shows immediately following the September 12, death of Johnny CashSpringsteen paid tribute by opening each show with an acoustic rendition of Cash's " I Walk The Line ".
The Rising Tour would come to a final conclusion in the early autumn with three nights in Shea Stadiumwhere a brouhaha emerged.

A reviewer for PopMatters found an early New York City barnstorming show to be the first Springsteen show he'd seen that lived up to the classic Springsteen he imagined from the s and early s.
We needed Bruce Springsteen even more than we thought, and we thought we needed him a lot. People looked to us — actually they looked to the music — to quiet their sorrows. At first it seemed like the responsibility hoisted on us was too much. How could rock musicians meet these expectations? But somehow we did it. Somehow the tour was a great success. While Springsteen's popularity had dipped over the years La Festa - Alberto Belgesto - Non E Successo Niente some southern and midwestern regions of the United States, it was still quite strong in Europe and along the United States coasts, as exemplified by the unprecedented 10 nights he played in outdoor football Giants Stadium in New Jersey, a ticket-selling feat that no other musical act can come close to.
