Fourth annual Survival Sunday anti-nuclear benefit with Jackson Browne and Gary U.S. Bonds as well as Springsteen. After an introduction by Ron Kovic, Bruce begins with a solo "This Land Is Your Land", before being joined by Jackson Browne on an acoustic duet of "The Promised Land" and by Gary U.S. Bonds on a full-band duet on "Jolé Blon", Bruce's first ever performance of the song in the U.S. The five-hour-plus extravaganza closes with the traditional gospel number "Brother John Is Gone", with all artists on stage (Bruce's first ever performance of the song). According to press reports, Springsteen led the all-purpose backup band through "Cadillac Ranch" in the soundcheck. Ronald Reagan's younger daughter Patti Davis speaks at the event, as does Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Bonnie Raitt, Graham Nash, Stephen Stills, Nicolette Larson, Kenny Rankin, Timothy Schmit, Peter Yarrow, The Chambers Brothers & The Chambers Family Choir, Father Guido Sarducci, and The Hollywood Rock 'N Roll Revue (the evening's house band) also perform.
