Benefit concert in aid of renovations for the venue. A show that will be long remembered - in a unique presentation - Bruce and the band run through the entire Darkness On The Edge Of Town and Born To Run albums in order, as close to the original recordings as possible. Mark Pender guests on trumpet for "Meeting Across the River;" a full horn section (consisting of Pender on trumpet, Richie "La Bamba" Rosenberg on trombone, and Jerry Vivino and Ed Manion on saxophones) joins the band on "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out" and the encores. A test run, perhaps, for what would become a regular occurrence towards the end of the Working On A Dream tour.
