The event was the 14th Annual Light Of Day benefit to raise funds for Parkinson's Disease.

According to a report on Consequence Of Sound, Springsteen first appeared on stage during Jesse Malin’s set, when he joined him for a cover of The Ramones’ “Rock And Roll Radio”. Later, he sat in with Willie Nile for “One Guitar”.

Springsteen then played a 14-song set, including the live debut of “Frankie Fell In Love”, from High Hopes, and only the third performance of "Hearts Of Stone", a Springsteen composition recorded by Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes in 1978.

Springsteen was backed by longtime collaborator Joe Grushecky and the Houserockers, the group Springsteen has performed with at nine Light of Day benefits stretching back to 2000.

Springsteen had previously appeared at the Stand Up For Heroes benefit on November 6, 2013. He starts touring again with the E Street Band later this month, with the first show on January 26 at Bellville Velodrome, Cape Town, South Africa.
