Info & Setlist | Venue

One show, double bill, with Bruce and the boys opening for headliner Brian Auger's Oblivion Express. An article in the college newspaper indicates that David Bromberg was originally scheduled to headline this show but opted out after being informed that Springsteen was going to open the show. Bromberg was aware of the difficulty in following Bruce. Brian Auger probably wished he'd been aware too, as the vast majority of the 1,500 strong full house in Kendall Hall left after Bruce's performance. Seven of the eight songs listed above were mentioned as having been performed at this concert in a school newspaper review that followed. The other (Dylan's "I Want You") is a recollection of John Sciarappa, who was present at this show. If accurate, this brings back the performing history of the song by nearly a year - with the next recorded performance in November 1974, at Philadelphia's Tower Theater. Given that Bruce was the opening act this setlist is likely to represent nearly the entire show, with perhaps only one or two songs undocumented.
