On Aug. 14, 1970, Steel Mill, led by Bruce Springsteen, played on top of the parking deck at 7th and Marshall Streets. Flashes of heat lightning provided a spectacular light show.
On Valentine's Day in 1973, Springsteen, opened for Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks at the old VCU gymnasium. The show was free!
Yes, Springsteen has some history in Richmond. Tonight, with his E Street Band backing him up, the Boss will appear live on stage at the Coliseum. Call 780-4970 for ticket information.
