Springsteen plays last show at Giants Stadium

October 12, 2009 6:23:32 AM PDT
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."
