Info & Setlist | Venue

One show, held in the sold-out 2,000-seat Bollman Center. Springsteen & The E Street Band headline. Folk stylist Jae Mason (and his band) opened with 45-minute set. Although violinist Suki Lahav had made her debut the previous night, she is not present at this show or the following night at Clark University. The eight listed songs represent a partial setlist from the show and are mentioned in an extensive review that appeared in the school newspaper and a review in The Gettysburgian, student newspaper of Gettysburg College. Springsteen's set lasted for 2½ hrs (no intermission) and Bruce actually comments to the student reporter after the show that this was one of his longest shows to date. The reporter states that following the show the band (including Springsteen) were laid spread out on the stage in a state of total exhaustion. During "Kitty's Back" Bruce broke his guitar string and repaired it onstage, facilitating an exceptionally long rendition of the song. At one point Bruce was even running around in the audience. Of major historical interest is Bruce's rendition of Sam Cooke's "Twistin' The Night Away", the only verified performance by The E Street Band.
