The setlist details of this show are incomplete. Bruce's only performance of Joni Mitchell's "Big Yellow Taxi" and first ever performance in the U.S. of "Every Breath You Take". A private dinner-concert held on the beautiful estate of movie producer and investor Ted Field. This was a fundraiser for the Rainforest Foundation’s fight to preserve the Amazon ecosystem, billed as “An Evening In Brazil”. About 800 guests attended (the cream of Hollywood’s music/movie 'A' list), each donating/paying $5,000 a head for the privilege. The event raised about one million dollars. It was Sting who organized getting Springsteen and the others to participate in the all-star group. Bruce Hornsby, a member of the "Allstars" lineup, has jokingly commented: "It was quite a band. It was a hilarious night – actually it was basically a bunch of (band) leaders playing sidemen and butchering each others tunes. We rehearsed for two days though – we really tried to get it right."
