Info & Setlist | Venue

One show, with Springsteen and band the sole act on the bill. This was the first night back on tour after the three-week hiatus required to complete the Wild & Innocent album. This is also considered to be the first show of the Wild & Innocent Tour, however the concept of a tour to support the album is very much a modern construct. The band were touring constantly, and would continue to do so until March 1975. There was very little promotion or press. This show also marked the live debut of "The E Street Shuffle", as well as the first-ever guest slot in the lineup by Albee ("Albany Al") Tellone on baritone sax. Tellone, who had been a member of Bruce’s band during the 1971 Friendly Enemies/Dr. Zoom period, had been working as the Greetings Tour sound manager since November 1972. Tellone would end making stage appearances in the band (but only during gigs where "The E Street Shuffle" was played) from this night up until mid-December 1973, when Albee left the tour to start his own band.
