Info & Setlist | Venue

One show, triple-bill, with Springsteen and band the show opener. Second on the bill was Cold Blood and the headliner was It's A Beautiful Day. Springsteen was a very late replacement for The Elvin Bishop Group, who cancelled the week before. This was an all-afternoon, outdoor extravaganza held in the University's expansive 30,000 seat Alumni Stadium as part of 'Spring Carnival' week. The weather was unseasonably cool, overcast and blustery, so the attendance was only about 18,000, still, it was the biggest venue and one of the largest audiences Bruce played during the 1970s. All three bands played about 90-minute sets. See our Gallery tab to view photographs of the event from the UMass yearbook, and our News tab for press coverage.
