Springsteen Plays Last Show At Giants Stadium

 Highlighting the album that shot him to superstardom, Bruce Springsteen has rocked Giants Stadium in New Jersey for the last time.

Friday night’s show — which drew nearly 60,000 people and lasted for more than three hours — was the last concert at the venue in East Rutherford. It will soon be demolished to create parking for a new stadium.

The show was the fifth that The Boss and the E Street Band had performed there since Sept. 30. All featured full-album sets. And like previous shows, the final concert opened with a new song called “Wrecking Ball.”

During the show, Springsteen and his bandmates played the “Born in the USA” album from front to back. Overall, they performed 31 songs — including seven encores — and closed the night with “Jersey Girl.”
