40 Year Itch: She Has Sisters!

On May 1, 1973 at the Ahmanson Theatre in LA, Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band  took the stage as the opening act for Dr Hook And The Medicine Show and headliners New Riders of The Purple Sage. The 40 minute set was shot by a film crew on behalf of CBS Records. Among the songs were "Spirit In The Night", "Wild Billy's Circus Story" from the forthcoming The Wild, The Innocent and the E Street Shuffle and fan favorite " Thundercrack".The footage stayed locked in CBS vaults for years before its release as part of the Wings for Wheels documentary in 2005.

  By June the band would be opening for Chicago.

    Imagine that as an opening act. A hard act to follow for sure.
