Info & Setlist | Venue

First of two separate admission shows, 8:30pm. Opening of an historic five-night (ten-show) residency at the club. Springsteen & The E Street Band had previously played a three-night (six-show) residency here in July 1974. Bottom Line co-owner Allan Pepper was offered the chance to host Bruce and the band at the club by Sam McKeith (Bruce's booking agent at William Morris) one morning by phone. Columbia Records bought a quarter of the 500 tickets available for the stand, a perfect opportunity to expose employees and journalists to the upcoming talent of Springsteen. It is known that the show opened with "Thunder Road", played by Springsteen alone at the piano. The set also included only the second known performance of "Backstreets".
