Apparently, Springsteen gave President Obama and his staff a private farewell concert at the White House:

Would have been a cool show.

Here's the setlist from the link KC provided.

"Working on the Highway"
"Growin' Up"
"My Hometown"
"My Father's House"
"The Wish"
"Thunder Road"
"The Promised Land"
"Born in the U.S.A."
"Devils & Dust"
"Tougher Than the Rest" (with Patti Scialfa)
"If I Should Fall Behind" (with Patti Scialfa)
"The Ghost of Tom Joad"
"Long Walk Home"
"Dancing in the Dark"
"Land of Hope and Dreams"

Pretty solid set list, SK. A lot of ones he plays regularly but also there's a few in there that are either rarities or they're ones that he scatters throughout the tour.

Yeah, a few from his first two albums. I remember the two concerts I went to in 2013 were completely different set lists so I'll be interested to see last night's set list.

Wow! Cool man. Will this be your first Boss concert?

(Can't believe I'M the one from Jersey, and I'm still practically the only one here who hasn't seen him.)

Saw him twice in March 2013. We went to the first concert and then a friend of a friend had two tickets for the second concert but couldn't go. We snapped them up and went again. Totally different setlist. I mean some songs were the same but it was like two different concerts.

Looking forward to this concert as Stevie Van Zant wasn't with the band for that tour as he was in Europe filming a TV show. Tom Morello was a good replacement though. His guitar solo on The Ghost Of Tom Joad was awesome.

The Boss and E Street Band were in fine form last night. Just under 3 hours of non stop rock n roll magic. Will it be the last time we see him down under? I hope I can find some footage of the elderly lady in the audience that they kept showing on the big screens, grooving away. She was getting as big a roar as the band.
