Info & Setlist | Venue

First of two shows, double bill, with Springsteen and band headlining and blues singer Mighty Joe Young opening at a benefit concert for nearby Joe's Place. Both artists had originally been scheduled to play separate, single show residencies at Joe's Place (note the ill-fated Joe's Place listing). However a fire destroyed Joe's Place on April 2 and both artists quickly agreed to perform an adjusted double-billing schedule together at Charlie's (four nights, eight shows). It should be noted that although Springsteen increased the number of shows from three (as planned at Joe's) to eight (at Charlie's), the length of Bruce's performances at Charlie's were only 80 to 90 minutes, whereas the Joe's Place shows would have been two hours or more. A partial setlist from the early show is known via a gig review that appeared in a local paper.
