1978-05-00 Bottom Line (The), New York City, NY

Info & Setlist | Venue


Bruce is in the audience at a Lou Reed show at the Bottom Line. Reed mentions (and greets) Springsteen during his lengthy monologue in "Walk On The Wild Side"…"Hi Bruce. Springsteen is alright by the way. He gets my seal of approval, I think he's groovy. You notice the way the critics turned on him, like after they were on him, right?". It's hard to be certain, but Reed seems to invite Bruce on stage to perform his spoken parts on the song "Street Hassle" that he contributed uncredited on the album of the same title. However Bruce appears to turn down the invitation - you can hear an exchange in the audience during the song (at 6.26), along with what sounds like Springsteen's voice.

Lou Reed's live album Take No Prisoners is a compilation of ten songs from shows at the Bottom Line, recorded between May 17 and 21, 1978.
