Info & Setlist | Venue

One show, double bill, held in the sold-out 550-seat MacMorland Center, with Springsteen and band headlining and slide guitar virtuoso Ellen McIlwaine opening with a 60-minute set. Springsteen is introduced by Widener College emcee Murray the K. The listed partial setlist details are from reviews in the school newspapers of Widener College and Villanova University - see our News tab to read both. The review in The Villanovan is particularly caustic about the "loud, drunk and obnoxious" Widener College crowd, perhaps to be expected from a fellow Pennsylvania school. The concert started 70 minutes late due to the late arrival of the Springsteen camp but Bruce made up for it with a stellar, 1¾ hour performance. The show opens with "New York City Serenade", while "For You" is performed with Bruce alone at the piano. This is the infamous 'gangster hat show' where Bruce abandoned his ever-faithful beret in favor of a 'Bonnie & Clyde' style fedora, he told a student reporter after the show he'd acquired this during his recent Texas tour.
