Bruce Springsteen made a surprise appearance last night at the Wonder Bar in Asbury Park, N.J., going onstage to play a 45-minute tribute to Clarence Clemons in front of a crowd of about 400 people.
The music icon was in the audience for the opening set by Nick Clemons, Clarence Clemons’ son, and came onstage with headlining band Soul Cruisers.
It was Springsteen’s first performance since Clemons’ funeral on June 21, when he played “10th Avenue Freeze-Out” and “You’re A Friend Of Mine.”
Springsteen and the Soul Cruisers played “Action in the Streets” and “Savin’ Up”, plus covers like “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg,” “Sweet Soul Music,” “Shake,” “Raise Your Hand” and “Knock On Wood.”
