November 4, 2019 Madison Square Garden – Bruce Springsteen held a rehearsal performance and meet-and greet with the Boss and the evening’s other stars before the show.
Springsteen, a long-time supporter of the Woodruff Foundation, joined Crow for a performance of her “Redemption Day,” and performed his “Bobby Jean,” “I’ll Work for You Love,” “I’m on Fire,” and “Dancing in the Dark” which segued into “Land of Hope and Dreams,” to close the show.
He also told his annual off-color jokes, mostly in the NC-17 range. One was about a sex shop employee who made $50 selling a thermos, another was about materialistic fella who lost his Rolex in a grisly auto accident, and the third was about, well, let’s just say roads and goats. (Source Euapp.com) Previous time he told about an elderly couple in an alley up against the fence, and “they’re screwing like crazy.” “The wife says, ‘You didn’t screw me like that 50 years ago!’ The man says, ’50 years ago, that fence wasn’t electrified!” the singer quipped.
Bruce Springsteen and Sheryl Crow performed Crow’s stark anti-war song “Redemption Day” together, with the two backing themselves with acoustic guitars, at the Stand Up for Heroes benefit at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York, Nov. 4.
