Info & Setlist | Venue

The Bruce Springsteen Band opens for the (at the time) red-hot Humble Pie. After the show, an impressed Peter Frampton, leader of Humble Pie, tells Springsteen and the band he'd like to have them open for them on a national basis. Frampton also states that he would be happy to get the band an audition with his record label, the prestigious A&M Records. For no logical reason, manager Tinker West declines both offers on the spot. The story is corroborated in separate published interviews with Peter Frampton and Bruce Springsteen Band trumpet player Harvey Cherlin. The show was reviewed in very favourable terms in the Asbury Park Press of July 12, 1971. The ten-strong Bruce Springsteen Band for this show consisted of core members Springsteen, Van Zandt, Tallent, Lopez, and Sancious, plus (on selected songs) Harvey Cherlin (trumpet), Bobby Feigenbaum (sax), Delores Holmes (vocals), Barbara Dinkins (vocals) and Tinker West (congas).
