BruceFeaturedCheck out raw footage of Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band rocking the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena last Thursday night (March 17). This is how the final two songs of the concert – “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out” and “Shout” – looked from the pit.

Springsteen went on to play the final show at the historic LA Sports Arena, which opened in July of 1959, on Saturday (March 19). The 56-year-old venue is slated to be bulldozed to make way for a new outdoor stadium for the Los Angeles Football Club.
