Bruce Springsteen Rocked a Jersey Club Crowd With a Two-Hour Benefit Show

Bruce Springsteen was back on familiar territory on Saturday night (Nov. 16) for a benefit show at the 500-capacity Stone Pony club in Asbury Park, New Jersey, for a Boston College fundraiser.

According to the Asbury Park Press the rock icon was backed by E Street drummer Max Weinberg and former Asbury Jukes guitarist Bobby Bandiera and his band as he played a two-hour set that mixed in classics such as “Born to Run,” “Dancing in the Dark” and “Spirit in the Night” with covers including “Twist and Shout.” 

A 22-song setlist posted by Backstreets Magazine showed a wide-ranging list of beloved and deep-cut tracks, including: “Seven Nights to Rock,” “Darlington County,” “Growin’ Up,” “Two Hearts,” “The Boy From New York City,” “I’m on Fire,” “Waitin’ on a Sunny Day” and an encore set that featured a medley of Detroit songs and a final acoustic take on “Thunder Road.”

According to the APP, Springsteen’s son, Evan, attended Boston College and the rocker previously played a benefit for the private Jesuit university in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, at the Stone Pony in 2011.
