EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- 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.”
