E Street Concerts Week 8/20 - 8/26

Wednesday August 20th

  • 12pm - 8/20/81 - Los Angeles Sports Arena, CA (Concert is a benefit for the Vietnam Veterans of America Foundation and features passionate versions of many songs, including "The River", "Who'll Stop The Rain", "Prove It All Night", and "Darkness On The Edge Of Town". Also includes a stunning "Ballad Of Easy Rider", the only known performance. Springsteen stops singing during "The River", either due to overwhelming emotion or to shake hands with the veterans seated around the stage - opinion is divided. An outstanding “Detroit Medley” includes snippets of “I Hear A Train”, "Land Of 1000 Dances", “Sweet Soul Music” and “Shake”. "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)" also includes a brief "Sweet Soul Music" during the band introductions. Widely considered one of Springsteen's finest shows.)

"Glory Days" includes two bars of "Out Of Limits" and "Backstreets" includes an extended intro and a short 'Sad Eyes'. "Growin' Up" features the bear story. "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)" includes Roy playing a snippet of "Hail To The Chief" during the band introductions. Final show of the New Jersey stand and one of the best shows of the tour. Source concert for the fantastic "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out" used on the Live/1975-85 box.)

"Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)" includes a snippet of "Theme From Shaft" in the midsection.)
  • 8pm – 8/23/08 at Scottrade Center in St. Louis, MO (Premieres for four classic covers - "Then She Kissed Me" opens, last played exactly 33 years ago in Atlanta. "Mountain Of Love" (also 33 years away), a snatch of "Not Fade Away" as intro to "She's The One" recalls 1978, and finally "Little Queenie," one of three songs played after "American Land".

The first appearance of Danny Clinch's black and white 8mm film of the acoustic "Countin' On A Miracle" after the lights come up at the end of the show.)
  • 8pm – 11/18/75 at Hammersmith Odeon in London, England (The first confirmed tour performance of "Lost In The Flood", last played in October 1974. However, the number of incomplete / unknown setlists around October and November 1975 mean it may not be the first time the song was actually performed. "Thunder Road" is the slow version with Roy on piano and Bruce on harmonica and vocals. The introduction to "Spirit In The Night" includes the opening lines from Lloyd Price's "Stagger Lee")

Monday August 25th
  • 12pm – 8/2/99 at CA Arena in Meadowlands, NJ (Only 22 songs, but the set includes the first ever performance in the U.S. of "Take 'Em As They Come" as the opener along with "Point Blank", "This Hard Land", and "Something In The Night". This is the first "Something In The Night" for over 20 years, last played at the Palladium in New York, September 15, 1978.)
  • 8pm – 7/1/00 at Madison Square Garden in New York, NY (Show is also professionally filmed and forms the main portion of the material used for theLive In New York City album and DVD. What a finale - "Lost In The Flood", not played since 1978 is a highlight, along with another rendition of "The E Street Shuffle" and a rare "The Promise". "Blood Brothers" closes out the tour in a special version with a new last verse written specifically for the for the occasion)

Tuesday August 26th
  • 12pm – 8/26/12 at Magnetic Hill, Moncton, Canada (A fairly standard 26-song, three hour festival set includes the first ever performance in Canada of "Pay Me My Money Down", previously played this tour in New Orleans.

  • 8pm – 9/19/78 at Capitol Theater in Passaic, NJ (Probably one of the best all-time concert recordings. Broadcast on WNEW-FM New York and nine other stations in the north-east, including WBCN-FM and WCOZ-FM Boston, WIOQ-FM Philadelphia and WIYY-FM Baltimore. Set includes great versions of "Because The Night" and "Fire," and also includes what many consider to be the finest examples of "Racing In The Street" and "Thunder Road" ever.)
