Nassau Coliseum, New York 1980 is a live album by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, released in March 2015, and was the fourth official release through the Bruce Springsteen Archives. The show was originally recorded live at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York, on December 31, 1980.
The concert, performed on New Year's Eve 1980 and New Year's Day 1981, is known for clocking in at almost four hours of music with 38 songs. The recording marks the first live release from the River Tour. "4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)" from this show previously appeared on the Live/1975–85 box set released in 1986, and "Rendezvous" became known in a recording by Greg Kihn and was later released by Springsteen on Tracks in 1998, and 2010's The Promise.
A tremendous show and one of the longest known with an astonishing 38 songs. The set includes the last known version of "Rendezvous" until 1999 and the live premiere of The River outtake "Held Up Without A Gun". The New Year's Eve celebrations include "In The Midnight Hour" and the last known "Auld Lang Syne". Standout performances include "Who'll Stop The Rain", "Racing In The Street", "The River", a wonderful full-band "The Price You Pay" and an extended "Detroit Medley". Roy Bittan plays pieces of "Once Upon A Time In The West" as a prelude to "The River" and as a bridge between that song and "Badlands". "Cadillac Ranch" includes some lyrics from "No Money Down". The encores also include the second "Twist And Shout" and the penultimate "Raise Your Hand" of the River Tour.
