IMHO, this was a pretty big date for Bruce Fans and the Boss...

06/08/1984: Bruce plays a warm-up show for the Born in the U.S.A. Tour at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park. “Glory Days,” “Darlington County,” “My Hometown,” and “Born in the U.S.A.” all make their live debuts. Listen to this historic bar gig below.

06/08/1985: The Stadium-Breaker! Bruce’s encore of “Twist and Shout” almost collapses the stadium in Gothenburg, Sweden. Bruce will refer to this show many times over the years.

Bruce Springsteen live at Ullevi Stadium in Gothenburg Sweden 8/6/1985 The show that broke the Ullevi Stadium! From BruceBase: Notorious show that led to the stadium requiring serious repairs. The rhythmic movement of tens of thousands during Twist And Shout nearly led to a structural collapse of the venue, which rests on a layer of clay. After the concert the concrete pillars supporting the stadium were extended to bedrock. Once again,  Thanks to for the image.
