Info & Setlist | Venue

One show, double bill, with Springsteen opening for headliner Chicago. The twelfth of thirteen consecutive shows and Bruce's first appearance at Madison Square Garden. Both artists' entire performance on this night were professionally videotaped and shown real time on the large screen above/behind the stage, although none of this footage has ever surfaced to collectors. It's unknown if this video still survives in Springsteen's archives. Springsteen performed an extra encore at this show, so the performance was over an hour. According to comments by drummer Vini Lopez (who noted the filming of this show) the promoter was upset the band played longer than its allotted time and so the following night the crew only filmed headliner Chicago's set, not the Springsteen performance. A contributor to the Greasy Lake website recalls the above songs were performed, with "Thundercrack" as the set closer. While roadie Albee Tellone did not recall the filming, he speculated that Mike Appel never was allowed access to the video. It's doubtful if Bruce wanted a copy. By this time, according to Albee, Bruce was thoroughly tired of playing on the tour and couldn't wait for it to end.
