Springsteen plays last show at Giants Stadium

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - October 10, 2009 Friday night's show - which drew nearly 60,000 people and lasted for more than three hours - was the last concert at the venue in East Rutherford. It will soon be demolished to create parking for a new stadium.

The show was the fifth that The Boss and the E Street Band had performed there since Sept. 30. All featured full-album sets. And like previous shows, the final concert opened with a new song called "Wrecking Ball."

During the show, Springsteen and his bandmates played the "Born in the USA" album from front to back. Overall, they performed 31 songs - including seven encores - and closed the night with "Jersey Girl."
