Bruce Springsteen made a guest appearance at Coldplay’s recent concert at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on June 5.
Springsteen performed two songs alongside Chris Martin’s band, including his songs “Working on a Dream” and “Dancing in the Dark” after Coldplay played the latter at soundcheck earlier in the day.
Martin told the crowd before calling the Boss on stage:
“The thing that happens when you make magic … is that magic comes to the building.
“I have a tattoo on my arm because this person is my hero. So please welcome – I can’t believe it, I get to say it – please welcome Mr. Bruce Springsteen.”
After the two-song set, Martin said to Springsteen:
“Thank you … thank you for everything.”
Springsteen recently announced his first tour with the E Street Band since 2017 and scheduled to kick off in Spain on April 28 next year. The European trek ends on July 25 in Italy and although no announcement has been made yet, it’s rumored that North American dates will also take place both before and after the confirmed dates.
While outside music, Springsteen shared his Broadway dream and cameos on television series:
“I have this distant dream of being in Mary Poppins on Broadway or something, but that’s a long way off.
“Modern Family was my daughter’s favorite show at the time and we bonded over that show and Curb Your Enthusiasm is Curb Your Enthusiasm, so how could you ever say no to that? I’m not an actor, clearly – [but] I’m good for a cameo or two here and there.”
