Info & Setlist | Venue

One show, double bill, with Springsteen and band headlining and Buzzy Linhart opening. Being a part of the school's Spring Carnival '74 itinerary the free concert had an unusual schedule, with Linhart performing a 90-minute show starting at 6.00pm, then a three-hour break before Springsteen took the stage at 11.00pm. Bruce's performance lasted just under two hours. A pre-show article in the school newspaper The Montclarion mentions a press release that describes Bruce as "a good Catholic boy from New Jersey." A Brucebase reader who attended comments: "The most memorable thing about the show was the beginning. The stage was totally dark and then as the lights slowly came up, like an early gray dawn, they played a long intro to "New York City Serenade" while the band members remained motionless like mannequins, like ghostly shadows, one of the two or three best shows I have ever seen."
