Info & Setlist | Venue

Held in the 10,000 seat Kiel Auditorium, and one of the few gigs on the Darkness Tour with a disappointing turnout – over 5,000 tickets remained unsold. Billboard magazine reported an attendance of 4,516 and gross receipts of $33,612. A Brucebase reader comments: "I remember when the lights came up at the encores that I was stunned that there were only a few rows of the upper level filled - for what was the most amazing show I'd ever seen." A review in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch recalls "Badlands" and "Thunder Road" as being played. A contributor to the Greasy Lake website mentions that "Quarter To Three" was played. In a 1978 magazine interview Clarence Clemons mentioned this gig as one of his favorites of the tour. When Springsteen and The E Street Band returned to St. Louis on November 25, they performed in the much more intimate 3,500 seat Kiel Opera House. Michael Stipe is believed to have attended this show or the later Opera House show, noting that it changed his life.
