01 Walking the dog
02 Rosalita (Come out tonight)

Notes:
Held in the sold-out Student Center Ballroom, with Springsteen headlining with a 90-minute performance and local country-rock group THE HATFIELD CLAN opening with a 60-minute performance. The two-above mentioned songs are mentioned as having been performed in the school's brief (but glowing) newspaper review of the concert. "Shotgun" (a cover of the Junior Walker & The Allstars hit) is actually reviewed, but it may have formed part of "Rosalita" - the review doesn't clarify that point. Prior to the start of this show there had been a heated argument/skuffle between road manager Steve Appel and Vini Lopez. Several hours after the show, in the early morning hours of 13/2/74 (and after discussing matters with Mike Appel by phone) Springsteen asked/ordered Lopez to submit his resignation, effective immediately. Consequently this turned out to be Vini Lopez's final show with the band. The sudden departure of Lopez would force the cancellation of the trip to - and the next three scheduled shows in - Ohio. This appears to be the last show with Vini Lopez, but it was the show on the 18.

Notes:
CANCELLED concert, never rescheduled. This show had been planned to be ONE show, held in the 500-seat Student Union Auditorium, with Springsteen the sole act on the bill. The bad news came via a phone call from Mike Appel to the head of the Student Union Concert Board on the early evening of 14/2/74. Appel stated that there had been a sudden, unforeseen departure of Bruce's drummer (Lopez) and that, while a new drummer (Carter) had already been chosen, rehearsals would be needed before any gigs could be played. The Student Union Board did ask that Springsteen (who was still back east) travel to Ohio and give a solo performance instead - but the request was denied. In a bizarre twist, only a few hours following Appel's phone call a robbery took place in which all the cash takings and unsold tickets for the Springsteen show were specifically targeted and stolen. The cancellation and robbery were not related. The announcement of both the cancellation and the robbery were made on the morning of 15/2/74 in the school's newspaper.

Notes:
CANCELLED concert.. The cancellation was caused by the sudden, unplanned departure of drummer Vini Lopez following the show in Kentucky on 12-Feb-74.

Notes:
A lot of tapes are dated incorrectly to this gig. See 12/2. CANCELLED concert, never rescheduled. Planned as a ONE show, double bill, with Springsteen & The E Street Band headlining and country-rock band L.A.W. opening. The cancellation was caused by the sudden, unplanned departure of drummer Lopez following the show in Kentucky on 12/02/74. NOTE: audio from The Agora radio broadcast of 03/06/74 is often incorrectly attributed to this cancelled gig. There is another (probably wrong) timeline for these last shows : The 12-Feb gig was cancelled for Clarence being arrested for not paying alimony to his ex-wife, Bruce deciding the incoming money of some gigs would have been used to take him out of jail, Vini Lopez becoming violent arguing about this with Steve Appel and being kicked off for this reason.

Notes:
One show only - and the first show with new E Street Band drummer Ernest "Boom" Carter. Springsteen had ordered Mike Appel to cancel the date as Carter had yet rehearsed with the band and did not know any of Springsteen's compositions. However under threat of legal action by Club owner Carlo Rossi, Springsteen reluctantly agrees to do the gig. By all accounts the setlist for this 2hr+ show is the most unusual of Springsteen's career - virtually all vintage rock standards, songs that Carter already knew. According to Mike Appel, "one of those amazing nights where everything worked, where the show was fantastic and not a soul knew that Carter was a new drummer". Unfortunately no tape of the show has ever surfaced.

01 Wild Billy's circus story
02 Walking the dog
03 Tokyo
04 Rosalita (Come out tonight)

Notes:
ONE show, 8PM, with Springsteen the sole act on the bill. The partial setlist above is from an attendee recollection. THERE IS NO CIRCULATING AUDIO. This final night of Springsteen's 2-night stint at The Main Point was nearly cancelled, as Bruce had come down with a bad case of influenza and could barely function. A BRUCEBASE reader who attended the final show affirms the story, commenting: "he had a fever of 101 and sat in a chair all night, except for 'Rosalita' - even sitting down, he was the best I ever saw".
