Bruce Springsteen Joins the Gaslight Anthem for “The ’59 Sound” at Glastonbury




Concertgoers at Saturday’s Glastonbury Festival got an epic New Jersey surprise when the Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon announced, three songs into a nine song set, “I think I can hear the sound of my hometown.” Cue fellow Jersey boy Bruce Springsteen, who joined the band for a ridiculously convincing version of “The ’59 Sound.” The words “Alright Bruce, break it down!” are definitely uttered, but this isn’t exactly the Jonas Brothers and Stevie Wonder at the Grammy’s, say — these two acts have a healthy mutual respect that goes back years at this point. It certainly sounds like they’ve done this before.
