Info & Setlist | Venue

19-song set includes "Blinded By The Light". "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)" features an extended mariachi-style introduction and a snippet of "Theme From Shaft" in the midsection. A surprise concert for the university students, arranged the week before and announced on April 5 with tickets going on sale the same day, just after students returned from Spring Break. Tickets were initially only available to Colgate students, an additional 600 tickets went on sale to the general public the night of the show. Held in Starr Hockey Rink at the University's Reid Athletic Center. Despite almost selling out, the event was a run at a loss for the University with Springsteen's $15,000 fee added to the costs of publicity, rented seats, and generators, since Colgate's facilities could not provide the power required for sound and lights. Total costs to the Social Committee was $20,000, the most ever paid out for a concert at Colgate at the time. According to the Colgate Maroon, committee officials felt the return justified the expense.
