Notes:
ONE show, double bill, held in the Villanova Field House, with Springsteen co-headlining with JACKSON BROWNE - two of the best songwriters of the 70's on the same bill for a mere $4 admission fee! Springsteen opened and Jackson Browne closed, but both gave headliner length (80-90 minute) performances. Although both have appeared together at numerous benefit shows over the years, this is the only time they've given full performances on the same bill. Once mentioned briefly by Browne in interview as "a truly magical night". Surprisingly there was no post-concert review of this show in Villanova's newspaper. NOTE: This is generally regarded as the final gig of the Greetings From Asbury Park Tour.

Notes:
ONE show, double bill, with BONNIE RAITT opening for headliner JACKSON BROWNE. Following Bruce and Jackson's gig at Villanova the night before Browne invited Springsteen to this afternoon show. Apparently Bruce joined Browne and/or Raitt onstage at some point during this show.

Notes:
Above is a partial setlist, not in the actual performing sequence and probably missing four or five selections. One show, with Bruce and the boys the only sole act on the bill. Held in the 1,000-seat Eisenhower Theater within the multi-venue Kennedy Centre complex. This show is generally regarded as the start of the "Wild and Innocent" Tour, but I prefer to catalogue the shows from this one to the start of the BTR tour as 'Pre-BTR gigs'. Although the new album was still a couple of weeks away from being commercially available, advance promo copies of the new album had just been distributed. It seems that this concert may have been promoted by CBS to the press as the live debut of the new LP. A brief report in the 19-Oct-73 edition of "The Herald" indicates the entire album was performed - if so, the only known instance where all seven songs were played at one show. Unfortunately no audio from this concert has ever surfaced.

01 New York City serenade
02 634-5789
03 For You
04 Thundercrack
05 Twist and shout

Notes:
Partial setlist. One show, double bill with Bruce and the boys headlining and THE JAMES MONTGOMERY BAND opening. The College had originally contracted John Sebastian as the sole act for this evening - but he cancelled a couple of weeks before the gig and the Student Concert Committee was able to procure both Springsteen and Montgomery's services for the same price. Montgomery opened with a 60-minute, Chicago blues-dominated set. Springsteen's show lasted 90-minutes and included a triple encore, finishing with "Twist & Shout". Thanks to Tom for the partial setlist mentioned above.

Notes:
Late show: TWO shows, double bill, with Springsteen headlining and acoustic trio WIRE AND WOOD opening. Halloween night. The above-mentioned 13-song setlist is culled from a circulating AT of fair to good quality that is believed to be the 2nd (late) show. The two "cut" tracks (noted above) are not circulating complete. The CD "BEFORE THE FLOOD" (CU) has the entire show except for "Thundercrack". This setlist is similar to the previous night's gig, but with slightly different song sequencing in the second half of the show. "Zero" and "Thundercrack" were added for this show - but the previous night's "634-5789" was dropped. Albee “Albany Al” Tellone guests on baritone sax on "The E Street Shuffle".
