The Greatest Springsteen Concert Ever

TheGreatestSpringsteenConcertEver Photo You need not have attended Bruce Springsteen's benefit concert for Vietnam veterans at the Los Angeles Sports Arena on August 20, 1981 to do well on this quiz. However, if you didn't attend, you missed a hell of a show. The evening began with Bruce standing alone on stage, trying to quiet the crowd so he could introduce Vietnam veteran Bob Muller, who reminded the crowd that "rock and roll...brings us together, and it is rock and roll that is going to provide the healing process that everybody needs. So let's stop talking about it - let's get down to it. Let's rock and roll!" And with that, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band appeared on stage and tore in to the opening song (see question #1). Three hours later, my brother and I agreed that we had witnessed something special. If you know your Springsteen lyrics, band members, and songs that Bruce has covered, you should do well. Thanks to, aka "The Killing Floor" for supplementing my memory of the setlist order, and to the Billboard Book of Top 40 Hits by Joel Whitburn. Enjoy.
