John wrote: I skipped my Music Appreciation class that night to go to see Bruce for the first time. We had a garage band at the time and we had not felt like playing since John Lennon was shot two months previous. After that show I was re-energized by the power of music. I can still feel the crowd shouting "tenth avenue freeze out" in my chest. unbelievable.

jeff wrote: A pouring deluge outside. Springsteen has said he loved playing to audiences that were skeptical. Any doubt the good ol' boys had about him were obliterated that night. I remember bolting to the side of the stage as the band exited after the last song and I watch Bruce collapse into the arms of his people. It still remains the best show I ever saw.
