Info & Setlist | Venue

One show, triple bill, headlined by Springsteen and band. Some confusion reigned in the weeks leading up to this event, with Springsteen at first billed, then pulling out of the event, then finally back on the bill. One of the two undercard groups was Doo Dah (led by George Theiss, Springsteen’s former bandmate in The Castiles). By all accounts a pretty wild affair, with the admission fee including food and all the beer one could drink! The show started late due to technical problems. About half way into Springsteen’s set he played "Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town", only to have a serious brawl erupt in the audience during the song. Consequently the police became embroiled and the promoters had to do some fast talking to get the police to let the show continue. Rova Farm was not a farm, but a congregation center operated by the local Russian Orthodox community. This show, sometimes listed as being held outdoors, was definitely indoors, as you would expect in the middle of winter.
