Info & Setlist | Venue

This two-hour show took place at the Grand Ole Opry's 4,500-seat venue on the grounds of the then new Opryland U.S.A. Theme Park. Contrary to myth, this was not the first-ever rock show allowed inside the spiritual home of country music, with The Byrds having broken the ice in 1968 at the Opry's former Ryman Auditorium location. An article in the Nashville Banner the following day (which mentions "Growin' Up" as having been played) gave the concert a glowing review but reported a crowd turnout of only 3,000. A review in The Tennessean, which lists "Spirit In The Night", "It's My Life", "Thunder Road", "She's The One", "4th Of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)", and the "Detroit Medley" by name, also reports that seven of eight songs from Born To Run, three each from the first two albums, and a handful of oldies were performed: given this, the rest of the setlist most likely largely corresponded to the shows before and after. The remaining songs listed here are corroborated by an eyewitness attendee.
