Bruce Springsteen ended his world tour over the weekend, toned down but revved up.
Springsteen played more than 30 songs over 3 1/2 hours Saturday night on Milwaukee's lakefront for Harley-Davidson's 105th anniversary celebration. He made few comments between songs.
Only for a few moments before "Livin' in the Future" did the rocker who often brings his liberal-leaning political comments to the stage stray into politics.
He mentioned wire-tapping and rendition the secret transport of terror suspects from one country to another.
"Things that basically at the heart are un-American," he said. The crowd gave spattered groans but mostly stayed silent.
He did not play "Born in the U.S.A," his anthem about the difficulties Vietnam War veterans faced, or the anti-war ballad "Devils and Dust" about Iraq.
