Performing at the Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle on Feb. 27, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band played two songs for the first time on their current tour: Their cover of Jimmy Cliff’s “Trapped” (with Jake Clemons, who happened to be celebrating his 42nd birthday, really nailing the saxophone solo) and “Land of Hope and Dreams.” The latter featured a fanfare-like horn intro and was played as the last song before the encores. You can watch videos of both sons, below.

The band‘s current tour is their first in nearly six years. Upcoming shows in New Jersey include Prudential Center in Newark, April 14, and MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, Aug. 30 and Sept. 1 and 3.

There also will be shows at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, March 16; Madison Square Garden in Manhattan, April 1; the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, April 3; the UBS Arena at Belmont Park in Elmont, N.Y., April 9 and 11.

The band’s next show will take place March 2 at the Ball Arena in Denver.
