Info & Setlist | Venue

One show, double bill, with Springsteen opening for headliner Richie Havens. Bruce's first known performance in Connecticut. Springsteen and the boys were able to give an extended 70-80 minute performance even though they were the opener. This gig was originally intended for another night and when the date was moved it forced Springsteen to cancel a scheduled show at the Shaboo club in nearby Willimantic. "4th Of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)" opened the set - this is the earliest confirmed performance of the song. Brucebase reader Ed was present, and says: "I know Bruce opened with "4th Of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)", but the rest of the show is just a blur. No one in the audience had ever heard Bruce before, and the crowd loved him! He ended up doing about 45 minutes of encores, and finally had to leave the stage so Richie Havens could perform. Throughout the Richie Havens show people kept calling for Bruce!"
