Bruce Springsteen's landmark album Born to Run turns 40 today. And because we haven't attended the Church of Springsteen in far too long (for real Bruce, go on tour already), we rounded up each track from the all-time-great album played for a Philadelphia audience. Enjoy, and try not to get too teary-eyed during his tributes to Harry Kalas ("Thunder Road") and the late great Clarence Clemons ("Tenth Avenue Freeze Out").

"Thunder Road," April 29, 2009, The Spectrum

"Tenth Avenue Freeze Out," March 28, 2012, Wells Fargo Center

"Night," October 6, 2007, Wachovia Center

"Backstreets," December 30, 1975, Tower Theater
