Springsteen played Sing Sing, 1972

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band performed in the prison chapel for inmates here on 12/7/72.

See Bruce by Peter Ames Carlin, at pp. 142-143. Curiously, Mr. Springsteen's maternal grandfather, lawyer Anthony Zerilli, spent time as a prisoner in Sing Sing ( Bruce at p. 7).
