Info & Setlist | Venue

Two concerts tonight were originally scheduled (along with the two shows the following night) as regular Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes gigs. However Southside became ill (suffering from a recurring throat ailment) and couldn't perform so Steven Van Zandt came to the rescue by organizing The Asbury Park All-Star Revue - a combination of The Asbury Jukes, The E Street Band, Ronnie Spector and Springsteen. Due to Southside's illness and a lack of time for Van Zandt to prepare to lead, tonight's two shows were rearranged into a single concert starting at midnight. Van Zandt was the lead vocalist (with Bruce on guitar/background vocals) on most of the tracks listed; Bruce took lead vocals on "The Fever" (backed by the Asbury Jukes), "Thunder Road", "Rendezvous", "Backstreets", and "Born To Run" (backed by the E Street Band), shared lead vocals with Ronnie Spector on "You Mean So Much To Me" (backed by the Asbury Jukes) and contributed backup vocals and/or guitar to many other songs. "Having A Party" includes a bit of "It's All Right" as an introduction. Independent recollections from those present indicate that Bruce was on stage all night, but that cannot be confirmed via the tape alone. If you have any more information, please get in touch.
