Info & Setlist | Venue

Springsteen makes a (somewhat) surprise appearance at the 2015 Light Of Day "main event" charity concert. The Light Of Day organization funds research into possible cures, improved treatments and support for persons suffering from Parkinson's disease and related illnesses. Following a long soundcheck with Joe Grushecky (Bruce arrived at the Paramount Theatre at 4:30pm), Bruce guests with Willie Nile and La Bamba's Big Band before a solo acoustic "Janey, Don't You Lose Heart" and a fifteen-song set with Joe Grushecky & The Houserockers that includes "Racing In The Street ('78)" and "Hearts Of Stone". Bruce's set with La Bamba includes The Box Tops' "The Letter" and "This Little Girl", which Bruce wrote for Gary U.S. Bonds. Danny Clinch provides harmonica on "Pumping Iron". "Light Of Day" includes "Land Of 1000 Dances". "Thunder Road" is performed acoustically with piano accompaniment and a closing saxophone solo. The final three songs are performed with all performers on stage, including Light Of Day founder Bob Benjamin. Ed Manion again joins the Houserockers after performing with La Bamba's Big Band.
