Bruce performed the song only once:
 
 
 
 
 
 
Bruce had a guest appearance during a show with Patti Smith. Bruce plays piano or guitar on all the tracks of the setlist mentionned under, a mixture of spoken word, poems and songs. At the early show, "Slowly Walking Down The River" and "My Car Was Invisible (Case Of Bruce Springsteen)" are improvised, semi-spoken-word pieces performed by Smith with Bruce on piano. "Picture Hanging Blues" features Bruce on piano and Lenny Kaye on guitar. The full Patti Smith Group joins starting on The Velvet Underground's "We're Gonna Have A Real Good Time Together", which features Bruce on piano. He returned later in the show to play guitar on several more songs, believed to have been those listed underneath. A fan present at the late show recalls "Bruce mostly played guitar since John Cale was on piano for most songs. A few of my photos do show Bruce at the piano however."

Songinfo

"We’re Gonna Have a Real Good Time Together" was originally recorded on September 30, 1969 for the Velvet Underground’s unreleased fourth album. After MGM dropped the band from their roster and shelved the unfinished album, this song remained unreleased until Verve included it on the 1986 outtakes compilation Another View. It also appears on the eighth solo studio album by Lou Reed, released in February 1978 by Arista Records. Richard Robinson and Reed produced the album.
