Info & Setlist | Venue

In all likeliness "Badlands" opened the show, but we have no audio or documented evidence. This is Springsteen's second appearance at the Academy (he'd previously played here on May 28, 1976). Unfortunately the only known audio source is incomplete (it includes the listed setlist up to and including "Backstreets"). The last three tracks noted here were apparently also played, including a repeat performance of "Sea Cruise" that is unique to the 1976 and 1978 Naval Academy shows alongside one further performance at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado on August 16, 1981. A midshipman threw his hat on stage during "Sea Cruise" - Bruce grabbed it and wore it during the song. "Growin' Up" features the spaceman story. The Darkness On The Edge Of Town album is released on this date.
