Bruce Springsteen appeared at the county fair here, in his hometown, by joining in with Sonny Kenn and the Wild Ideas, on July 23, 1982. There is a wonderful treatise by David Wilson, from which this information is taken, at http://www.scribd.com/doc/68188252/Greetings-from-Freehold-Full-Text. It has an account of Springsteen being in the stands at first, and posits that he was researching for the lyrics for his song "County Fair," which came out the following year.
