Info & Setlist | Venue

First of two shows. As had been the case the previous two nights, the performing schedule was altered, with Springsteen and band opening, Biff Rose playing next and then Springsteen playing a headliner length second show to close the evening's festivities. David Bowie showed up on this final night to see Biff Rose (a friend of Bowie's) and caught Springsteen's performance, although the two weren't introduced to each other. Bowie had never even heard of a guy named 'Springsteen' until this night. In a Musician Magazine interview in 1987 Bowie commented on Bruce's performance on this night: "I hated him as a solo… as soon as the band came on it was like a different person and he was marvelous… I like the Greetings From Asbury Park material, my favorite period of Springsteen is the early stuff." In June 1973 Bowie would be the first artist to record (though not release) a Springsteen composition ("Growin' Up"). Bowie and Bruce would finally be introduced in late 1974 (see the November 25, 1974 listing).
