Info & Setlist | Venue

It appears that Bruce's people were planning to get him over to Europe in October 1978. In a review of the two Philadelphia shows in May, Melody Maker said, "in the next few months, Springsteen and co. will play 75 concerts before a planned trip to Europe and England in the autumn." Around the same time, Record Mirror said, "it is still widely rumoured that Springsteen will make a UK visit in the autumn, possibly as the opening attraction at a new London nightclub based on New York's Bottom Line" (probably The Venue, which opened on 1 November 1978; Bruce was also rumored to be appearing there with The Who in 1981). Then in July, Sounds ran a news item titled "Springsteen On Edge Of Town" which said that Bruce "is set to make his second visit to Britain in October. No details have yet been finalised, but Sounds understands from American sources that Springsteen's management have earmarked a period in October for British and European dates." After that, the plan seems to be dropped. No dates were ever announced, although an advert surfaced for a show on October 1 in Paris, France.

The US tour was set to end in Boston on September 25, but Bruce got sick in late July and make-up dates were added until October 1. He then took a break for the rest of the month and went back on the road throughout November and December 1978.
