1969-06-01 Monroe Park, Richmond, VA

Complete set details are not known, although the three above-mentioned songs are from a fan recollection that's deemed reliable. "Jennifer" is a known Springsteen composition from the period that has yet to circulate on any tape. This is Child's first trip to Richmond (and Bruce's first known appearance in Virginia) and is a free outdoor concert. New Jersey band Brother Duck also make the trip and open the show. Child's performance here has a huge impact and many more trips to Richmond will follow over the next eighteen months. Mercy Flight drummer Davy Hazlett is in the audience. We've been contacted by a reader who recalled a guy sitting on a big water fountain which broke during the show - anyone else recall this? In a 1978 interview, Bruce also mentioned that the band played in North Carolina.
