Info & Setlist | Venue

One show, double bill, with Springsteen headlining and Jae Mason opening. This is an extraordinary performance, similar in scope to the February 5 gig at The Main Point. Amazingly, it was not even close to a sellout. Westbury was a revolving stage performance (as were the 1974 Phoenix gigs). To accentuate the atmosphere Bruce ordered Mike Appel to install a functioning Ferris Wheel on stage as an effect prop, the plan was scrapped only at the last moment, after Appel told Bruce that the cost was going to be more than their performance fee. A Brucebase reader who attended comments: "the stage would turn once to the right and then back all the way to the left. Sitting in the back you had to wait for Bruce to come around again. During the encores the stage stopped, that's why you can hear people yelling 'turn the stage' near the end of the show". "The E Street Shuffle" includes "Having A Party". "Kitty's Back" includes a snippet of "Soothe Me" in the midsection. "New York City Serenade" includes a bit of "Backstreets" in the introduction. "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)" includes a snippet of "Theme From Shaft" in the midsection. "A Love So Fine" includes an interlude of "Shout". "For You" is the solo piano version.
