RALPH from Jersey wrote: Night, like Brian says ROCKED!! What a classic beginning to most of Bruce's shows in the 70's and early 80's -always NIGHT as the opener! Wow.

But, how can you overlook INCIDENT into ROSIE? I would call that the natural. In concert today, when Bruce (rarely) plays INCIDENT, we always expect Rosie, but never happens. This night it did.

This was the second of three nights before the New Year's Eve show - and we were feeling the three hours of sleep from the prior night. How does Bruce do it? Great show - the Long Islanders were very friendly to the Jersey crowd - afterall, they should. We gave them Bruce. Forever friends!!

Brian Leonard wrote: After having been a fan for six years, this was the first Bruce show I was able to attend--and while I was not totally blown away (that would have to wait for 1984), I was not really disappointed, either. My clearest memory is of the very start of the show--the band blazing away with "Night". Everything else just blends into a seemingly never-ending experience of "I can't believe I'm hearing/seeing this LIVE!!!". It left me wanting more, and so far that's meant 22 other shows over the past 25 years...

"Stop the show, I've just been attacked".
Anyone? Please?
