This concert is one of the best from the tour I’ve heard.. and Yes, it helps that it was broadcasted on the famous rock station: WMMS-FM…
One of the reasons the 1978 Tour is so well-remembered, and often viewed as the peak of Springsteen and the E Street Band in concert, is that several complete shows were broadcast live on radio stations.
Show for the Princes trust with special guests: Phil Daniels (Narration), Trevor McDonald (Newscaster), Ade Edmundson (Bell Boy; later with shotgun and scooter), Gary Glitter (Rocker), Stephen Fry (Hotel Manager), Dave Gilmour (Guitar on Dirty Jobs, Love Reign O’er Me). The band was introduced by Jools Holland. The other bands of the show: Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan and Ron Wood, Alanis Morrisette.
