Bruce Springsteen: Back in Familiar Territory

ASBURY PARK, N.J. (AP) - Bruce Springsteen was back in familiar territory with a rehearsal show Monday night in the city that has become known worldwide through his songs.

The show at the oceanfront Convention Hall was the first of two benefit rehearsals for Springsteen and the E Street Band, who are about to embark on their first tour together in four years. They will also play Tuesday night, and a third rehearsal concert has been added for Friday at Continental Airlines Arena in East Rutherford.

Springsteen and the band opened up with "Radio Nowhere," a song from their new album.

"We're going to run through some things, some new things, some old things. There may be some mistakes—but I doubt it," Springsteen told the crowd.
