Info & Setlist | Venue

Held in the school's Hill Auditorium. Bruce's 26th birthday and he delivers an extra special performance, among the best on the Born To Run Tour. Unfortunately the circulating audio ("Ann Arbor 1975") doesn't do the show justice. "Thunder Road" is the opening song in the slow arrangement featuring Roy on piano and Bruce on harmonica and vocals, the introduction to "Spirit In The Night" includes the opening lines of Lloyd Price's 1958 hit "Stagger Lee". "The E Street Shuffle" includes "Having A Party". "Kitty's Back" contains a snippet of "Nothing's Too Good For My Baby", "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)" starts off with "Come A Little Bit Closer" and includes a snippet of "Theme From Shaft" in the midsection, "Quarter To Three" is played, stopped, started up again, stopped and started up again a final time, and the first known "Detroit Medley" contains a short piano solo by Roy during "Jenny Jenny", includes "Back In The U.S.A." and does not return to "Devil With The Blue Dress" before it ends. See our News tab to read an interesting review of the show from The Michigan Daily, which includes the final sentence "…another step towards the day when the name Bruce Springsteen will become a household word."
