Info & Setlist | Venue

Springsteen, Ken Calvert (area Promotions Manager for Columbia), as well several others in the Springsteen entourage take the Darkness Tour bus to Pine Knob to catch a Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band concert. Bruce had mentioned to Calvert (who knew Seger) that he wanted to see Michigan’s favorite son in action. This was the first time Seger and Springsteen (mutual admirers of each others work) had ever met. Seger was aware Springsteen was coming and delivered an extraordinary performance. Following the show Springsteen and Seger spent a considerable amount of time backstage chatting, talking shop and singing some impromptu oldies. It has been speculated that Springsteen’s exceptional show and one-off performance of "Hang Up My Rock And Roll Shoes" the following night in Saginaw was inspired by this night’s events. Bob Seger would join Springsteen onstage for a memorable guest appearance on October 3, 1980 at the University Of Michigan.
