Bruce Springsteen didn't just show up at the Light of Day concert Saturday night at the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park, N.J., he played a full 14-song set.

Light of Day is an annual week of music events held each January in Asbury Park, N.J. to raise money for research for a cure for Parkinson's disease. It was inspired by Bob Benjamin, a longtime local music agent, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's and turned his 40th birthday party into a benefit giving birth to the Light of Day tradition that has grown to include an international series of concerts throughout the year.

Early in the evening, Springsteen joined Jesse Malin on a Ramones' song. Then he joined Willie Nile for "One Guitar."

At about 11:42 p.m., he returned to the stage (remember this guy is 64!) to begin his set with Joe Grushecky and the Houserockers as his backup band. He did a mix of his songs and Grushecky's songs as well as the world premiere of "Frankie Fell In Love" from his new album "high Hopes," and an extremely rare "Hearts of Stone," which he wrote but Southside Johnny recorded.
