Info & Setlist | Venue

First night of three at the Palladium, two years after Springsteen's stunning six-night stand at the same venue in 1976. Show opens with "Darkness On The Edge Of Town" dedicated to Muhammad Ali, who would defeat Leon Spinks in the Heavyweight Championship fight in New Orleans the same night. The full-band "Darkness On The Edge Of Town has only opened three times - Meadowlands on August 9, 1999 and Dublin on May 27, 2016 are the other two. A solo-acoustic version opened several shows in 1993. The last "Adam Raised A Cain" of the tour is played, as well as the last known version of "Something In The Night" until 1999, and the first known version of "Kitty's Back" since April 1976, played because someone in the crowd was yelling for it so much that Bruce asked the crowd to shut him up. "Because The Night" is dropped from the encores, replaced by "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out". Cliff confirms that "Quarter To Three" was the final song of the night. WPLJ DJ Carol Miller interviews Bruce backstage after the show.
