That show is legendary in CLE, as an 8th grader I wanted to go so badly but the parents would not allow a 14 year old to go to a high demand show where you had to camp out just to buy tickets. Remember that the Agora only held 1,000ish at best and at this time Bruce was playing mostly arenas. Many folks ripped the FM broadcast on to a cassette and copies were passed around to all who wanted them. The Darkness & River tours were his high point; great in that Bruce played 2 full sets and they were before the Born in the USA casual fans went to shows for a social experience more than the music. Bruce recorded many of his shows and the live music site nugs offers some for download including this one: https://www.nugs.net/bruce-springsteen-concerts-live-downloads-in-mp3-flac-or-online-music-streaming/I can remember listening to a simulcast of Springsteen playing the Cleveland Agora Ballroom on WEBN the summer of 1978 and then listening to bad bootlegs of that concert for years. I know there is already a Springsteen concert from 1978 mentioned but the Agore is by far the best. I believe you can get a clean recording online now.
That concert made me a Springsteen fan for life.
One of my 21 Bruce shows - had hoped to add more, but no tour announced for nowI was at this one --

What a jam
Metallica was my favorite band until January of 1989. I had seen them many many times in the early and mid 80's preach the word but then the mighty dollar was flashed in front of them and we learned that they were hypocrites as they told their original faithful following to go F* off. Hated them ever since.....Eagles Live from 1977 and Metallica S & M (1999) are two of my all-time favorites. The Metallica album is the one they recorded with the San Francisco Symphony.
I was late to Metallica. I believe S & M may be the only Metallica I have owned. I was not a metal fan but that album mixing the metal and the symphony got my interest.Metallica was my favorite band until January of 1989.

Eagles on the other hand could be interesting even though we all know that Hotel California was stolen from a Jethro Tull song back when the Eagles opened up for them..... but, I don't care as that song is one of the best ever while Tull's song was lost in the mix!!!!!!
huge fan of Woodstock and I likely have seen everything available but you never know.... maybe lurking somewhere some new footage will be discovered.Listen and watch. If nowhere else, YouTube.
AEROSMITH | Live at Tokyo Stadium (Japan, 2002)
Any Woodstock "69" footage you can find. I have yet to find footage of a full day.
New Musical Express, 1965. "Old Stuff". Admittedly, there is some real garbage, but fun to watch the format and old Groups play what were their hits at the time.
