Live History

FOR YOUR LOVE is known to have been performed at least once in Bruce Springsteen's early years (pre-October 1972) in the autumn of 1965 in Monmouth County, NJ, with The Castiles – it is not 100% confirmed if this was the Ed Townsend cover or a different song with the same title. No audio recording of this show is known to exist. Very little is known about shows from this early period, and therefore, the song may have been played on some more dates.

  1. Autumn 1965 at Reception Hall, Monmouth County, NJ (with The Castiles)

FOR YOUR LOVE was sound-checked prior to the 05 Apr 1988 show in Largo, MD, and the 23 May 1988 show in New York City, NY, (as far as it's known) but it was not performed on any of the Tunnel Of Love Express Tour's regular shows.
