Info & Setlist | Venue

Darkness On The Edge Of Town Tour rehearsals with no members of the public present. These are predominantly full versions with some minor stylistic differences. "The Promise" is the full E Street Band arrangement only played live like this on opening night of the Darkness On The Edge Of Town Tour, in 2010 in Asbury Park, and in 2012 in Washington, DC (though all circulating studio takes from the '70s also featured the band). The first take of "Prove It All Night" includes the piano and guitar introduction used on the tour. A brief rendition of the song "King Tut" is performed (often mistakenly identified as "Wooly Bully"). Apparently, the performance of "King Tut" results from an episode they saw of Saturday Night Live with comedian Steve Martin on April 22, 1978. Martin opened the show with the song, in an elaborate production number. The response to the song was so great Martin released a single in July that made the Top 10. "Unidentified Blues Instrumental" has historically been listed as Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love", but this seems to be a misattribution. The "The Way", which was dropped from the album in late April, along with "Spanish Eyes" and "The Brokenhearted", were Darkness sessions songs all released in later years, but not performed on the subsequent tour.
