Springsteen’s The River in Newark: YOUR photos, videos of the crowd-surfing, crowd-pleasing Boss

It’s been 36 years since Bruce Springsteen released “The River,” his fifth album.

And while Bruce and the album have aged, both seemed fresh and full or energy as he brought its lineup to the Prudential Center in Newark Sunday night. From the time Springsteen and his E Street Band opening with album outtake “Meet Me in the City,” the ultimate Jersey Boy had an exuberant audience captured.

The concert also featured non-River material: a rock version of “Atlantic City,” from The “Nebraska” album, “Working on the Highway,” “The Rising” and “”Human Touch,” “Thunder Road,” and “Badlands” among others.

'The River' songs ranked from worst to first

“All of these songs were met with ecstatic reactions (many more so than some of the slower segments of The River), and they pointed out that while Bruce (and his audience) may look back at 1980 with fondness, he’s still relevant decades later,” writes. “How many of his peers have added classics to their catalog since the turn of the millennium?”

According to that report, at one point, a woman got to the front of the stage with a checklist. “Just Got Married,” and “Preggo” were both checked off. “Danced with Bruce” wasn’t.

Well, check.

This should have been the final tracklist of 'The River'
