Info & Setlist | Venue

To start the show Bruce announces "They're Off!" in recognition of the Kentucky Derby and after Clarence plays the brief "Call To The Post"/"Boots and Saddles" intro. "Growin' Up" includes the teenage werewolf story. Bruce loses his place during "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)", which results in an unusual instrumental break until he picks up the song again; the song also contains a snippet of "Macho Man" after Clarence's introduction. A detailed review in the Lexington Herald confirm that the set included "The Promise" and show-closer "Quarter To Three", both of which are missing from the circulating audio. "The Promise" will not be played again until 1999. This information gives us what is, in all likelihood, the complete setlist. It is reported in a review that Bruce was treated for an ear infection before the show. Following this gig Springsteen gives a backstage interview to journalist David White, which was first broadcast on September 3 on Radio Station 2SM in Sydney, Australia as part of an in-house produced "Bruce Springsteen Story" history-music-interview Special (it included the live "Prove It All Night" promo audio from the Berkeley July 1 show). Billboard magazine reported an attendance of 4,000 (a sellout) and gross receipts of $28,328.
