2017-05-27 Count Basie Theatre, Red Bank, NJ

Steven Van Zandt famously wrote the horn arrangement for "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out", but the song has never been performed as it was tonight: As a Springsteen/Van Zandt duet. Van Zandt and his Disciples Of Soul were headlining at Red Bank's Count Basie Theatre (for which Van Zandt and his wife Maureen serve on the board of trustees). Stevie invited Bruce, "as a friend without work," to join him as a surprise guest for the last four songs. Among them was the duet on "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out". Bruce also performed on "It's Been A Long Time", "I Don't Want To Go Home" and the show's encore, the Marvin Gaye hit "Can I Get A Witness".
