Info | Venue

Cancelled concert, never re-scheduled. This was to have been the Jersey Artists For Mankind outdoor benefit to promote the May 16 release of the "JAM" single. Despite the fact that neither Springsteen or any E Street Band members were promoted or billed for the show, rumors began circulating in mid April that Bruce was going to show up and play, which saw town officials revoke the organizers concert permit on April 22. The Park could only accommodate 12,000 and there were fears that, even without tickets, 100,000 people might turn up in sleepy Freehold once the Springsteen rumor spread widely. As it was revealed much later, Bruce had not committed to perform - but had not ruled it out either and was leaning towards making an appearance if things could be kept under wraps. They couldn't.
