(chuckles) and there was cold beer at a reasonable price.....but still I couldn´t pass through those trees, I was paralyzed by my fears....then a gypsy woman called me onward and she said ´Son, what you need is you need some help....what you need, what´s your line ?´, I told her what I did and she said ´What you need is you need a band....but not just any band !´....so tonight here in Madison Square Garden, on the main event, I wanna introduce, in this corner....the Long Island Piano Pounder, Professor Roy Bittan ....and in this corner, the Minister of faith and friendship, keeper of all that is righteous on E Street.....the Middletown Mafioso and star of the ´Sopranos´-television-show....Little Steven Van Zandt on the guitar....that´s right....stand with me, Brother, at the riverside....the foundation of the E Street nation, on the bass, the Tennesee Terror, Mr.Garry W.Tallent.....on the drums, the man that brings the power night after night after night, star of Late Night Television, the East Orange Offender, the Mighty, Mighty, Mighty Max Weinberg.....on the guitar, the Godfather of the guitar, Secretary of heart and spirit, the Maryland Mauler, Nils Lofgren.....with me at the riverside.....on the organ, in this corner, with a record of a 165 unpaid New York City parking tickets....the Furious Flemington Furs´ Salesman, Brother Dan Federici....and now in this far corner, the Asbury Park Heartbreaker, the (?) defender, charged with a 180 counts of melodious assault, on the guitar and vocals, the First Lady of love, Miss Patti Scialfa....(?)....thank you, baby... and now last but not least....that´s right, last but not least....the Minister of soul, Secretary of the brotherhood, the next senator from the state of New York.....do I have to say his name ? ....do I have to say his name ?...say who ?....say who ?....say who ?....say who ?....say who ? ....say who ?....say who ?....say who ?....say who ?....say who ?.....”

´´New York City !....the Big Apple !....but everywhere I’ve gone, I’ve seen people lost in confusion....I´ve seen people lost.....in the concrete jungle....I´ve seen people lost in the wilderness....I´ve seen people lost on the subways in loneliness....I´ve seen people lost in envy of the Jersey Devils winning the Stanley Cup....I´ve seen people lost at the Statue of Liberty which is actually in New Jersey....I´ve seen people lost in the New York Giants memorabilia, who, come to think of it, actually play in New Jersey....maybe they should be called the New Jersey Giants....I´ll show you some controversy now, baby....I´ve seen people lost in bitterness (chuckles) but tonight we´re here on a search-and-rescue mission, we´ve come thousands and thousands of miles, all around the world, and I want you to know if you’re downhearted, disspirited, disgusted, dispossessed, downsized, analyzed, retropsychedelizised, Republicanised, it´s not too late to repent, I’m here tonight....I’m here tonight.... I’m here tonight....I’m here tonight....I’m here tonight....I’m here tonight .....I’m here tonight....I’m here tonight....I´m here tonight....I´m here tonight, I wanna re-educate you, resuscitate you, regenerate you, reconfiscate you, reindoctrinate you, recombobolate you, resexualate you, rededicate you, reliberate you with the power and the glory, with the promise, with the magic, with the mystery....with the ministry of rock and roll !....that´s right .....that´s right....that´s right....with the ministry of rock and roll !....now, unlike my competitors, I cannot, I shall not, I cannot promise you life everlasting ....but I can promise you life right now !...and all you gotta do is raise your hand and say ‘I’.....”
