Info & Setlist | Venue

One show, double bill, held in the Student Center Ballroom, with Springsteen and band headlining with a 90-minute performance and local blues-rock group The Hatfield Clan opening with a 60-minute performance. Bruce's first ever appearance in Kentucky. The show was not a sellout, only about half of the venue's 700 tickets were sold. The listed setlist (there are likely three or four songs missing) emanates from writer Joel Zakem's original, glowing, review of the show in the University of Kentucky student newspaper, as well as further details provided to Brucebase by Mr. Zakem. Springsteen opened with the extended Sancious-led intro version of "New York City Serenade". "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)" includes "Shotgun" in the midsection.

Prior to the start of this show there had been a heated argument/scuffle between road manager Steve Appel (manager Mike Appel's brother) and drummer Vini Lopez. Springsteen, after discussing the altercation incident with Mike Appel by phone following the show, then asked Lopez to submit his resignation. Consequently this turned out to be Vini's final show with the band. The sudden departure of Lopez would force the cancellation of the trip to Ohio and the next three scheduled shows.
