Light of Day XV: an epic event

4This year’s Light of Day main event was, quite simply, an epic event. It was the 15th anniversary of this great festival, and the main show at Asbury Park’s Paramount Theatre was a magnificent night. Lots of great performances that were highlighted by Bruce Springsteen’s surprise appearance (his 11th in fifteen years).

Bruce performed with Willie Nile, with La Bamba’s Big Band and Southside Johnny (including «Higher and Higher», «This Little Girl» and «I Don’t Wanna Go Home»), solo acoustic (a stripped-down version of «Janey Don’t You Lose Heart») and a full set with Joe Grushecky and the Houserockers (which included Eddie Manion on sax, and lots of highlights: «Hearts of Stone», «Savin ‘Up», «Save My Love», «Darkness on the edge of town», «Because the night», «Racing in the Street (’78)»…).
