Info & Setlist | Venue

Excellent set features Eddie Floyd guesting on "Raise Your Hand" and "Knock On Wood" (which includes the only known Springsteen rendition of "Yum Yum Yum (I Want Some)"). "Spirit In The Night" includes a line from "Stagger Lee" in the introduction. "She's The One" includes a brief intro rap. "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)" includes "Theme From Shaft" in the midsection. It's after this particular show that Springsteen and Van Zandt take a cab out to Graceland, and Bruce jumps the gate in an attempt to meet Elvis, who is actually in Lake Tahoe. Bruce is escorted off the grounds by security. George "GK" Klein, host of a weekly show on Sirius Radio's Elvis Radio channel and close friend of Presley, has stated that Elvis was aware of Springsteen at the time, and liked him "'cause he was a rock 'n' roller".
