Bruce Springsteen joined John Mellencamp onstage for a surprise performance in Newark on Sunday night.

The Boss and Mellencamp performed the 1983 hit “Pink Houses,” although it’s not the first time they’ve collaborated on the song, in December 2019 they played it as well as “Glory Days” at Sting’s semi-annual Rainforest Benefit. Moreover, Springsteen was featured as a guest on Mellencamp’s 2022 album, Strictly a One-Eyed Jack.

In early 2022, Mellencamp told Billboard:

“Bruce has a wonderful way of having humility and tenacity, all at the same time.
“He can get his ideas across with humility and an ability to do what he wants to do. He’s run his own band longer than I have, so I don’t have to say, ‘Hey Bruce, how about…?’ He says, ‘How about if I try this?’ and ‘How about if I try that?’ And he’s Bruce Springsteen — sure, try it.”

Springsteen and Mellencamp’s 2024 Tour Dates

The Boss is set to resume his world tour on March 19 in Phoenix, Arizona, with dates slated for both sides of the Atlantic. While Mellencamp will continue his current tour until late July when he’ll join up with Willie Nelson and Bob Dylan for this year’s Outlaw Festival.
