Bruce Springsteen returned to Las Vegas last night (March 22), greeting the city with a rendition of Elvis Presley’s ‘Viva Las Vegas’ – check out the footage below.

The track was included as one of a number of surprise setlist inclusions at the show, which also saw songs like 1992’s ‘Roll of the Dice’ and 1978’s ‘Racing in the Street’ get their first outings in several years.

It was the second show of the 2024 leg of Springsteen’s current world tour, which has restarted after the Boss had to postpone a hefty chunk of shows in 2023 due to health concerns.




The worries arose towards the end of last year, when the singer-songwriter needed to be treated for peptic ulcer disease, and was forced to delay all of his shows after playing in New Jersey on September 3.

On March 19, they returned to the stage in Phoenix, Arizona, playing a set incorporating tracks from across his extensive discography, ranging from his first album, ‘Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J.’, through 2022’s ‘Only the Strong Survive’.
