‚My City of Ruins‘ wurde mit folgendem Brief einen Tag zu vor im Radio gewünscht:

„Dear Bruce, for long time I have dreamed to have a chance to ask you a song that is special to me. Today I want to ask you a song that has unfortunately acquired a new and stronger meaning to me and many of my friends since last April, 6. That day, our area was struck by a terrible earthquake. About 300 people died, thousands were injured, tens of thousands are now homeless and they do not know when they will be able to have their homes rebuilt. Most of the people are still living in tents; factories, offices, schools, the university, everything is gone now, and it is difficult to think about tomorrow. Our city is in ruins, Bruce, so some days ago I found myself thinking that I would love to listen to ‚My City of Ruins‘ in the show in Rome, and so would my friends from L’Aquila and all the area, as many of us will be there for you.“ Vittorio und die Fans von L’Aquila (= die Hauptstadt der Region Abruzzen und der Provinz L’Aquila in Italien).

Eine weitere Überaschung war das Cover „You Can’t Sit Down“, ein 1963 Hit von den Dovells. Bei „American Land“ kamen Adele und Edie Zirilli, Bruce Mutter und Tante, auf die Bühne. Natürlich hörte man am Anfang des Konzertes: „Once Upon a Time in the West“.
