According to, this was only the second time Springsteen had played "Jailhouse Rock" at an E Street Band show. The other performance was on October 2, 2009, at the Giants Stadium. "Follow that Dream" was played for the second time this tour (April 29, 2013 in Olso, Norway) and only the fourth time since 2000.

An audience of around 60,000 clapped and sang-a-long as the Boss picked the song from Elvis Matters fan club members on the front row. Springsteen is known to cover songs from sign requests in the audience and only two weeks ago, Springsteen performed "Burning Love" in Paris, France. Watch video here.
