Springsteen opened the show, which is raising money for the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund, performing a version of ‘Land of Hope and Dreams’ with his wife, Patti Scialfa.
The pair then returned to play a cover of Tom Waits’ ‘Jersey Girl’ later in the show. See both performances below.
Fountains Of Wayne then played – it was their first gig in seven years – with lead singer Chris Collingwood saying: “This for Adam, his parents, his children and New Jersey.”
Other performers during the show included Halsey, who performed ‘Finally // Beautiful Stranger’ from her home, and SZA, who played a rendition of ’20 Something’. See the performances below.

Jersey 4 Jersey is the latest in a growing number of high profile livestreams aiming to raise money for frontline workers across the world as the coronavirus pandemic continues.
Last weekend, Lady Gaga hosted fundraiser One World: Together At Home, which featured performances from the likes of Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, Billie Eilish, Taylor Swift, Lizzo, Stevie Wonder, and Gaga herself. It has raised nearly $128 million (£102m) for the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
In the UK, Vans For Bands has set up a Bus-tival event this weekend, which will raise funds to provide frontline NHS workers with accommodation and rest facilities during and after long shifts.
