During his sold-out Atlantic City concert, Browne played a full collection of hits. With his down-to-Earth personality, he casually spoke to the audience, took requests from fans and even asked security personnel guarding the stage to turn-around and enjoy the concert.

His most recent studio album, “Standing In The Breach,” is a collection of ten songs, highlighting deeply personal and political subjects while exploring themes of love and hope, in a modern world.

Through the years, Browne defined a genre of songwriting focusing on honesty, emotion and politics. After the Three Mile Island accident took place In March 1979, he founded the antinuclear organization, Musicians United for Safe Energy with several friends from the music industry, including Bonnie Raitt and John Hall.
