Info & Setlist | Venue

First of two shows, 8:30pm, with Springsteen & The E Street Band the sole act on the bill. As noted on pre-concert advertisements, singer-songwriter Jeffrey Comanor opened for Springsteen, performing a short set. Recollections differ however, and he may not have appeared at all six shows of the three-day stand. The black and white footage of "Jungleland" that can be seen on the making-of-Born To Run documentary Wings For Wheels is likely to derive from one of the shows in this stand. With Ernest 'Boom' Carter on the drums it must pre-date August 14, and the early arrangement of "Jungleland" would place the footage around this date. The audio does not match any performance of "Jungleland" known to circulate and photographs of Springsteen taken during the Bottom Line stand are very similar to what can be seen on the video. The footage is likely to have been shot by Barry Rebo.
