The show was attended by 60 lucky fans who were given tickets to the event through the Springsteen fan site Backstreets. The gig featured live E Street Band performances of track from the recently released "lost" album 'The Promise,' plus a set-closing cover of 'Blue Christmas,' first made famous by Springsteen's childhood hero Elvis Presley.
An additional 50 fans in the know braved the cold outside the Carousel House to hear live renditions of 'Save My Love,' 'Ain't Good Enough for You' and 'Outside Looking In.' Springsteen's alternate rendition of 'Racing in the Street' from 1978 opened the set.
The E Street Band played each of the 11 songs twice for the future webcast. The Asbury Park performance was the second area appearance in a month for Springsteen, who joined his brother-in-law's band, Timepiece, at Woody's Roadside Tavern in Farmingdale, N.J.
