Info & Setlist | Venue

A special concert played at the request of John Hammond, who was close friends with the family of a Rosemary Hall resident. As a result Springsteen performed for a substantially lower fee than usual. Bruce slips a few lyrics from "Talk To Me" into the introduction to "She's The One". "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)" includes the "Come A Little Bit Closer" introduction and a snippet of "Theme From Shaft" in the midsection. A Springsteen show regular who attended has commented to Brucebase: "There was no advertising as far as I know. I used to call Mike Appel's office to get Bruce news and they told me. A few other diehards also learned of the show, so the first few rows were full of Springsteen dignitaries who got there plenty early. With my tickets I had Joe Kivak, Simon Montgomery and a female friend of his, a guy named Ernie and his friend, Ed Sciaky. Bruce was blown away when Sciaky showed up backstage. Also up front were Kennie Viola, founder of Thunder Road (fanzine), and some friends of his. Bruce seemed real pleased to see friendly faces at such a strange venue."
