01 Jungleland
02 Kitty's back
03 Rosalita (Come out tonight)

Notes:
This is the infamous Anne Murray show where she was "Brooced" off. Brucebase: There has been some recent debate on this concert, and to maybe settle some of the arguments, a newspaper review two days later in the New York Times confirms that there was tension between the two sets of fans and that lot of Bruce fans left after the band had finished, but also states that Anne Murray did OK. One show, triple bill, with Springsteen & The E Street Band occupying the middle slot in a show headlined by ANNE MURRAY, with BREWER & SHIPLEY as the opening act. This was an evening show held outdoors in the Wollman Ice Rink Theatre within Central Park. This concert had originally been booked with Boz Scaggs headlining, Anne Murray billed second and Brewer & Shipley opening. When headliner Scaggs pulled out of the gig in June promoter Ron Delsener replaced him with Springsteen in the headlining slot. However Shep Gordon and Johnny Podell (managers of Murray) objected to Springsteen receiving headlining status, citing Murray's then-superior commercial success. As a consequence the schedule was changed the week before the show, with Murray receiving the top billing. Advertisements exist from both before and after the change of headlining status (see photos below). Mike Appel reluctantly agreed with the change on the condition that Springsteen would be allowed to perform for at least 80 minutes. As it turned out approximately 80% of the 5,000-strong crowd came specifically to see Springsteen - and half way through Bruce's performance Murray's managers realized they'd made a serious mistake, even trying in vain to get Mike Appel to yank Bruce offstage prematurely. Needless to say Bruce played his full show and Anne Murray was placed in the nightmarish position of having to follow him. Partial setlist above is from an attendee recollection. THERE IS NO CIRCULATING AUDIO FROM THIS SHOW. This would turn out to be the last time (excepting charity benefits) that Springsteen & The E Street Band opened for another artist. The story made it to JOHN SEBASTIAN, who voluntarily took second spot on 18 / 10 / 74 in Passaic.

Notes:
CANCELLED outdoor twilight concert (due to ongoing sessions at 914 Sound Studios), never rescheduled. As can be seen from an early AD (below), the gig was planned as a ONE show, double billing, with Springsteen headlining and JAE MASON opening. Note: this cancelled show should not be confused with Bruce's non-Festival Music Inn performance in Lenox on 23/07/75 (see listing).

Notes:
CANCELLED show (due to recording session commitments), never rescheduled. This was to be the opening of a 3-night (3-show) residency at this small, Jazz-orientated club. Although the 3-night stint was promoted in Boston newspapers during June (see promotion below), all three gigs appear to have been cancelled in early-mid July, as there is no later information in any newspapers - plus there has never been an attendee recollection in 30 years.

13-Aug-1974 Newark,DE Stone Balloon,USA

 - Click on a title for additional details!!

04 Spirit in the night
08 Jungleland

Notes:
ONE show, double bill, with Springsteen & The E Street Band headlining and NJ-based outfit MOTHER GOD AND COUNTRY opening. The Stone Balloon was a then-new 900-seat club catering for students at the University Of Delaware. This was a make-up date for a scheduled July appearance that had been postponed due to studio commitments. Despite the show being a sell-out, a large crowd turned up hoping in vain to obtain standing room tickets – these people hung around all evening in street party mode, causing some nervousness among nearby residents. The Stone Balloon’s then owner-manager Bill Stevenson has commented: “when Newark’s Police Chief paid a visit around 2AM he asked ”when is this guy supposed to stop?” Complete setlist details are not known but the two above-mentioned tracks are noted in a review of the show (see the news section below). It seems unlikely that “Born To Run” was performed. Over the years much folklore seems to have also developed surrounding length of this show. There were technical difficulties that caused over a two-hour delay between the finish of Mother God & Country’s set and the start of the Springsteen set, resulting in Bruce & The E Street Band not taking the stage until after midnight. Bruce made up for the hassles with a magnificent 2hr show, but not the 4-5 hr performance of urban legend.

01 Spirit in the night
02 It's hard to be a saint in the city
03 Kitty's back

Notes:
Partial setlist. Springsteen & The E Street Band headlining and THE INCREDIBLE STRING BAND opening. The above-mentioned partial setlist details are culled from a review of the gigs in the Asbury Park Evening Press. No additional song titles are articulated, although it is mentioned that “new material” was performed (“Jungleland” and “She’s The One” being likely inclusions, but there may have been others). These were the final performances of Ernest “Boom” Carter and David Sancious as E Street Band members. Sancious has commented that they’d made their intentions to depart known to Bruce several weeks prior to this night, although the rest of the band only found out a couple of days beforehand – seemingly because Bruce had hoped the two might change their minds. THERE IS NO KNOWN AUDIO from this night in circulation. David Sancious and Ernest Carter quit the band after this show. Two weeks previously, they had been in the 914 Sound Studios to record a track for Bruce's new album. That track was titled 'Born to Run'.. This seems to be the first show billing Bruce and the band as "the E street band"
