Info & Setlist | Venue

Cancelled Springsteen performance, never rescheduled. This concert was scheduled as one show, double bill, with Springsteen & The E Street Band headlining and Brazilian jazz-fusion legend Eumir Deodato opening. Bruce awoke in the morning with laryngitis from the previous night's performance in Springfield. To compound the problem Millersville was a rare afternoon show, which meant Bruce's voice had six or seven hours less to rejuvenate than normal. Mike Appel was left with the unenviable task of breaking the bad news to the Concert Committee only a few hours before a sold-out show that had been anticipated for weeks and was the key event in the school's 1974 Homecoming Carnival. Appel offered to play the following day but it was apparently not logistically feasible from the school's standpoint. Apparently, posters advertising the gig spelled Bruce's name "Blue Spring Steen." A concert went ahead anyway, with Eumir Deodato providing an extended, three-hour performance to make up for Bruce's non-appearance.
