Info & Setlist | Venue

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. Shockingly, "Badlands" seems to have been dropped from the set: it is absent from the circulating tape and an attendee confirms that "Night" opened the show. The same attendee confirms that "Born To Run" appeared in the encores. The Darkness On The Edge Of Town album is released on this date.
