On September 19, 1978 Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band performed what many fans and critics consider their single greatest show, at the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, New Jersey. Why this particular show? Why does it stand out from not only all the other amazing Darkness on the Edge of Town tour performances, but from Bruce's entire performing career?

There are many reasons—and that's what Springsteen scholar Arlen Schumer’s upcoming webinar for New York Adventure Club, SPIRIT IN THE NIGHT: BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN’S GREATEST SHOW is all about. Schumer was in the 6th row of the landmark show, and the art director of Thunder Road magazine, the first Springsteen fan publication, and has now put together a multimedia webinar that recreates the legendary concert in words, images, music and video excerpts from the legendary show itself!
