Storm delays Bruce Springsteen’s birthday concert
Bruce Springsteen celebrated a late, rainy birthday last night – with his band’s concert at MetLife Stadium lasting until nearly 2 a.m.
According to the Star-Ledger, the rocker didn’t take the stage until about 10:30 due to Saturday’s storm, more than two hours after the concert’s planned start time.
At one point, security vacated the stadium due to lightning.
But the rain delay didn’t dampen spirits, as Bruce’s mother and other relatives appeared onstage with a birthday cake to celebrate Springsteen’s 63rd birthday.
Bruce even handed out pieces of cake to some of his most loyal fans, according to the Star-Ledger.
And then it was onto “Twist and Shout,” brining a close to one of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band’s latest-ending concerts.
