Bruce Springsteen's Special New Jersey Show

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Bruce Springsteen recently performed a rare $1000/ seat show at New Jersey’s Count Basie Theater, performing the unusual feat of playing two albums in sequence: Darkness on the Edge of Town and Born to Run

The show lasted three hours and comes on the heels of the recent death of founding E Street Band organist Danny Federici

The concert was organised by Patti Scialfa to raise money for the theatre and raised a massive $3,000,000

Clarence Clemons was reported to be in good form, at 66 years of age, with Born to Run giving him a major work out

To finish up they played an outtake from Darkness at the Edge of Town “So Young and in Love”, “Kitty’s Back” ,“Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)" and “Raise Your Hand”
