Bruce Springsteen Releases 1986 Bridge School Concert Live Album


Bruce Springsteen released a live album featuring his appearance at the inaugural Bridge School Benefit Concert in 1986. The acoustic performance ends with a version of “Hungry Heart” featuring Bridge School co-founder Neil Young, as well as David Crosby, Graham Nash and Stephen Stills.

The concert held at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California on October 13, 1986 marked Springsteen’s first acoustic set in more than 10 years. He began solo, singing an unaccompanied version of “You Can Look (But You Better Not Touch)” at the onset, following with the debut acoustic arrangement of “Born In The U.S.A.”

Springsteen was then joined by Nils Lofgren on guitar and Danny Federici on accordion for “Seeds,” “Darlington County,” “Mansion On The Hill,” “Fire,” “Dancing In The Dark,” “Glory Days” and “Follow That Dream.” Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young then emerged to help close the set with “Hungry Heart.”

A portion of the sales of Springsteen Bridge School, which was dedicated to Young’s longtime manager Elliot Roberts, will go to the Bridge School. Stream “Follow That Dream” via below:
