It was a snowy and then rainy night in Asbury Park, NJ last night but there was that certain magic in the air. Bruce Springsteen was getting ready to blow the roof off of the Paramount Theater along with all the other Light Of Day Foundation musicians. This marks the first time Springsteen has surprised the crowd Paramount Theater crowd since 2015. This was the 20 year anniversary for the Light Of Day foundation and I think it's clear that it was an important event for The Boss. Springsteen, just the night before, was in Florida doing a fundraiser and caught a flight home to a snowy New Jersey to be here for the event and to support Bob Benjamin. Yet again, showing how much Bruce cares for the event. 

Getting onto the performance, Springsteen was ripping and shredding guitar solos and of course taking over lead vocals for his own songs with Joe Grushecky. Bruce was looking right at home and was feeding off the crowd's energy after an invigorating version of "The Promised Land." Springsteen and the House Rockers continued to rip through Grushecky's catalogs with songs that Bruce has appeared on such as "Never Be Enough Time." I can go on and on about the performance but I'll let the videos do the talking (and that's mainly what you're here for). Check out the videos below! For the record, Pink Cadillac was a highlight and Darkness simply always kicks ass at these shows.
