Info & Setlist | Venue

Concert features both "For You" and "4th Of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)". Roy plays the piano intro before "The River". For the first time, Bruce (rather than Clarence) sings the opening lines to Lloyd Price's "Stagger Lee" as an introduction to "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)". The "Detroit Medley" includes a few lines from "Pain In My Heart" and "I Hear A Train". A contributor writes "It was shortly after The Who concert in Cincinnati where the people were killed. To try to prevent any problems, people were allowed in VERY early. In fact the band was just finishing the soundcheck. They were doing "Prove It All Night". After running through it twice Bruce kinda looked around surprised that people were being let in. He said "Hey haven't you guys ever heard of being fashionably late? Well, what do you want to hear?" Somebody yelled out very loudly "Lost In The Flood!" Bruce said "No, we can't do that one." Somebody else yelled out "The Ties That Bind!" Bruce says "No, we'll do that one later. I got one for ya." And they played "Good Rockin' Tonight". There were maybe a couple hundred people in the place when he started, but I was told he almost caused a stampede of people thinking the show was starting and trying to get in. Anyway it was pretty cool to hear a bonus song! I know it was one of my highlights of all the Bruce shows I've seen". Another reader writes "It was a fun show. When the show was over around midnight we came out to find out that it had snowed a few inches during the show and in true upstate New York style was not going to stop for a few hours. It took my friends and me about eight hours to get back to school."
