Notes:
ONE show, double bill, with Springsteen (as he’s done the previous week at UMass) opening for JOHN MAYALL. The school’s Yearbook includes several photos of Mayall’s performance but, unfortunately, none of Bruce.

01 Walking the dog
02 For You
03 The 'E' street shuffle [Al Tellone guest]
04 Kitty's back

Notes:
ONE show, with Springsteen the sole act on the bill. A 2hr+ performance that involved three 45-minute sets with an intermission between each. A proportion of this night's total show (audio evidence suggests it was the evening's final set) was broadcast by Georgetown University's WGTB-FM. The above-mentioned partial setlist is from the only known circulating portions of this rare broadcast. This audio emanates from a source that taped it off the airways, not the station's original tape. Consequently the sound quality is very good, but not brilliant. Albany Al Tellone guests on "E Street Shuffle". The four above-mentioned tracks can be found on the CD "PLAY THE TUBA & RUN". Note: two other tracks included on this CD are not (as claimed) from this show, or even this venue. These involve an audience recording of "Does This Bus Stop at 82nd St" (from an-as-yet-unidentified location, not Childe Harold) and an incomplete soundboard recording of "Let The Four Winds Blow" (from 6/1/74 at Joe's Place). This same audience recording of “Does This Bus Stop At 82ND Street” can be found on the CD “THE INNER VIEW” or the CD “THE BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN COLLECTION, VOLUME 2”.

Notes:
ONE show, double bill, with Springsteen headlining. This gig has been rumored as having been cancelled. However senior management at Pinecrest (who were there in 1973) have positively confirmed to BRUCEBASE that it took place. A local area band (name undocumented) opened the show. This was a hastily organized booking, with little time available for pre-concert advertising and promotion. Consequently only about 200 tickets were sold (the venue held over 600). A 90 - minute performance by Bruce.

Notes:
CANCELLED show, never re-scheduled. Originally scheduled as ONE show, with Bruce and the boys the sole act on the bill. Shaboo was a now-legendary watering hole that catered for students at nearby Eastern Connecticut University. A student at the school in Dec 1973 has commented to BRUCEBASE “I didn’t attend Shaboo that night but my dorm room mate went and I seem to recall him returning later that evening and telling me that Springsteen hadn’t showed up!” The show’s cancellation has been corroborated in comments by former Shaboo owner/manager David Foster, who has stated that Springsteen’s camp phoned and canceled only a day or two before the scheduled appearance. The Shaboo sadly burnt down in the '80 - Eric 17-06-02.

Notes:
ONE show, with Bruce and the boys the sole act on the bill. Opening of a 3-night (3-show) residency, Bruce's first formal advertised appearance at the club since December 1971 and the only E Street Band - era shows ever held at the venue. A long, 2hr+ show.

20-Dec-1973 Bristol,RI Roger Williams University,USA

 - Click on a title for additional details!!

01 Spirit in the night
02 Santa Claus is comin' to town
03 Rosalita (Come out tonight)

Notes:
Partial setlist, Unusual show in that it was an official school event but it was held off campus, inside the nightclub of the Bristol Motor Inn. This was a 100-minute show. The setlist comes, through Brucebase, from a newspaper review of the performance. "Santa" is likely to have been performed at many of the gigs in the December Xmas period.


21-Dec-1973 Beverly,MA Sandy's,USA

Unknown setlist
If you know or remember something about this show, please
write me at contrib@brucespringsteen.it . Your help is important!!


Notes:
ONE show, double bill, with Springsteen headlining and THE BILL COLWELL BAND opening. Sandy's, located in an outer north shore suburb of Boston, was a small, rock - orientated club that had opened in early 1973. The only known promotion and AD for this gig (in the 15/12/73 edition of The Boston Real Paper) carries the unique billing of "Bruce Springsteen and his studio musicians", indicating the club wanted people to know that this was going to be rock show, not a solo performance.


22-Dec-1973 Cherry Hill,NJ Uncle Al's Erlton Lounge,USA

Notes:
ONE show, triple bill, with Springsteen headlining. Undercards were local bands UPROAR (who opened) and MOXIE (who played second). Both local bands were performing a weeklong residency at the club but Springsteen was a special, last minute addition to this night's itinerary. Both local groups played for about an hour. Springsteen took the stage just before midnight and performed for about 2hrs.


23-Dec-1973 Cassville,NJ Rova Farms Function Center,USA

01 Santa Claus is comin' to town

Notes:
One show, with Bruce and the band the sole act on the bill. By all accounts a pretty wild affair, with the $5 admission fee including all the beer you could drink! The show started very late due to equipment problems but given that there was plenty of beer nobody complained. About half way into the show Bruce and the band played "Santa Claus" only to have a serious brawl erupt in the audience during the song. The police became involved and this further disrupted the proceeding, in fact the plug was nearly pulled - the promoter having to do some fast talking to get the police to let the show continue, which it did. This show is sometimes listed as being an outdoor gig but it was definitely indoors, as you would expect in the middle of winter. Rova Farms was not a "farm", it was a congregation center operated by the local Russian Orthodox community. Thanks to Igor and Jersey Jim for the details
