Postscript - it's fair to say that nobody really expected the reaction, on almost international proportions which the song "American Skin (41 Shots)" would proceed to generate with everyone from the Mayor of New York, the entire NYPD, and the press taking sides over both the song, it's content and the message it may or may not convey. Anyway - this site doesn't take sides - but it is useful to document the issue for the archives.

Now I'm out here on this road
Alone on this road tonight
[I] close my eyes and feel so many
friends around me
In the early evening light
And the miles we have come
And the battles won and lost
Are just so many roads traveled
So many rivers crossed
And I ask God for the strength
And faith in one another
'Cause it's a good night for a ride
'Cross this river to the other side
My blood brothers

Springsteen joined Bobby Bandiera's band (house band for the night) on "Mystery Train" early in the evening. Later Bruce, along with Patti Scialfa, Jon Bon Jovi and Max Weinberg, took the stage for a 45-minute set of oldies. Words to "Mustang Sally" were altered to "ride, Julie, ride," in honor of Hall of Fame jockey and event attendee Julie Krone. Springsteen signed and auctioned off one of his Stratocasters for $30,000 and then auctioned off a 1 hour private guitar lesson with himself that fetched a whopping $50,000!

Bruce, Patti Scialfa, Lisa Lowell, Soozie Tyrell, Southside Johnny, Garry Tallent, and Nils Lofgren take care of the warming up slot while they wait for Max and his band to come from New York on the fast ferry. A nice acoustic set. "Jingle Bells" introduces the official part of the evening by the Weinberg 7's horn section. "For You" is performed by Bruce alone on the piano. Garry and Soozie joins Bruce for an acoustic "Blue Christmas". "Powerhouse" is a Max Weinberg 7 showpiece. "The E Street Shuffle" includes all horn parts and a snippet of "Move On Up" in the end-part. "Kitty's Back" includes the horns again. "Rose" and "As Long As I (Can Be With You)" are Patti's solo slots. Southside, Little Steven and Bobby Bandiera shows up for "This Time It's For Real", "Until The Good Is Gone" with Steve on lead and "All I Needed Was You" with Southside, Bruce and Steve sharing the lead. Nils does "Shine Silently" before Bruce drives home "Merry Christmas Baby" with a full horn backing and return to his youth with a horn-filled "So Young And In Love". "Roll Of The Dice" and "Bobby Jean" are familiar versions before a great "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" with Jon Landau ends the main set. "My City Of Ruins" also gets the horn-treatment including a beautiful muted trumpet solo – Great!. "I Don't Want To Go Home" includes Southside, Steve and Bruce on lead vocals, "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)" also get the horn section treatment, before "Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town" rounds off the evening. All this with only two days of rehearsals – well done, lads.

Audience tape released on 'Christmas Holiday Night' (Crystal Cat).
