Info & Setlist | Venue

Listed songs are culled from attendee recollections of the show, and a review in the Bangor Daily News from August 14, 1978. It's highly likely that "Because The Night" was played after "Born To Run". The attendee also notes that during a great version of "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)", Bruce was acting up running around before running to the microphone and announcing "someone stop me… before I hurt myself" and collapsing to the stage. Clarence rushes over to play sax over him and a few girls rush the stage and huddle around him until he revives and they are whisked away and he continues. "Growin' Up" features a mid-song story with him being chased by armed forces and "Backstreets" features Bruce referencing the singer Steve Lawrence and singing a Lawrence song "Pretty Blue Eyes" before going back to "…hiding on the backstreets". The back of the stage area of this 8,700 seat venue was curtained off and consequently the seating was reduced to 6,000 for this show. Billboard magazine reported an attendance of 5,892 and gross receipts of $48,780.
