The earliest show on the Darkness tour to be released in the Archive Series, Berkeley 7/1/78 bristles with energy on songs like “Darkness On The Edge Of Town” and “Adam Raised A Cain,” along with “Night” and “For You,” both of which featured in the early months of the ’78 tour. A memorable encore opens with Bruce’s definitive solo-piano arrangement of “The Promise”, the first live version of the song to be released from 1978, and offers only the second E Street Band performance ever of “Because The Night,” with alternate lyrics.

Based on his worldwide best-selling autobiography Born to Run, Springsteen on Broadway is a unique evening with Bruce, his guitar, a piano, and his very personal stories. The show’s original run included 236 sold-out performances at Jujamcyn’s Walter Kerr Theatre, beginning in October 2017 and concluding in December 2018. Springsteen earned a Special Tony Award for the performances, which were later adapted into a film and a soundtrack album.
Audience members will be required to provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination in order to enter the theater. For more information, visit jujamcyn.com/springsteenFAQ.
