Seattle 12-20-1978.. at the Seattle Arena (he played the Paramount NW earlier in June '78) but I digress, it's the 12-20-78 performance that never leaves me, ever. Promises made, Promises exceeded, then everything just got blown out of arena with a house lights up and a few hundred stragglers dancing to Twist & Shout in the wee hours of the night. As I headed to my car I turned backed at the arena to watch Bruce slide across the loading dock fall onto the hood of a beater car, start it up and drive through us (most of the converted oblivious that this madman honking was the Boss), tapping his horn, on his way to the airport for a Chrismas break. The best rock and roll show anyone there has ever attended. Ask them.
Unfortunately the boots all sound poor. But this Winterland gift is very close! Awesomeness. Here's a pic from Seattle 12-20-78.
