Bruce Springsteen revisited his old stomping grounds Saturday night, performing a 25-song set at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, N.J. He was backed by E Street Band members Roy Bittan and Max Weinberg, Asbury Juke Bobby Bandiera and a four-piece horn section.
Also joining Springsteen on stage for five songs was J.T. Bowen, who was the lead singer for Clarence Clemons’ Red Bank Rockers in the 1980s.
The set list, according to NJ.com, included a mix of E Street Band staples, covers and solo work. Springsteen closed the performance with an acoustic version of “Thunder Road.”
The show was a private benefit for Boston College, where Springsteen’s son Evan is a student. The audience included New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, NBC news anchor Brian Williams and actor Tim Robbins.
