Springsteen Joins The ‘Big Band’ On Stage [VIDEO]
Last Tuesday night, for the fifth year in a row, Bruce Springsteen performed at the Stand Up for Heroes benefit for the Bob Woodruff Family Fund.
The fund offers assistance to military personel who have suffered injuries while serving in the U.S. armed forces.
Bruce was introduced by his friend Jon Stewart and performed a four song set with E Street drummer Max Weinberg’s “Big Band”.
The four tunes performed were “Open All Night” off Nebraska, “Spirit in the Night” from Greetings From Asbury Park, N. J., “Land of Hope and Dreams” (which he dedicated to all men and women in uniform) and closed with Little Richard’s “Long Tall Sally“.
Afterwards, Springsteen’s shirt, harmonica, harmonica holder and guitar sold for $160,000 in a private auction to aid the benefit.
Other celebs in attendance that night included Bill Clinton, Rachael Ray, Ricky Gervais, Gayle King and Kathy Griffin.
Good to see Bruce and Max jaming together: there’s been no official word on the future of The E Street Band since the death of saxophonist Clarence Clemons last summer.
