Bruce Springsteen wrote a rockin’ tardy note for a 9-year-old superfan
Nine-year-old Xabi Glovsky was a little late to school on Wednesday, but that was nothing a tardy note from Bruce Springsteen couldn’t solve.
Springsteen, who is infamous for his lengthy shows, noticed Xabi and his dad holding a sign in the crowd during his Los Angeles show last Tuesday.

“Bruce, I will be late to school tomorrow. Please sign my note :),” the sign read.
Later, Xabi and his dad got to meet Springsteen backstage — after a 35-song set, naturally.
And not only did The Boss sign Xabi’s note, he also wrote it. The whole thing.
“Dear Ms. Jackson, Xabi has been out very late rocking & rolling. Please excuse him if he is tardy,” Springsteen wrote. He signed the note with a flourish — we’re sure Ms. Jackson was very impressed.
This isn’t the first time a kid has needed a tardy note after a Springsteen show, though it seems to be the first time Springsteen has stepped in to write the note himself.
If The Boss wants to keep having 35-song concerts on school nights, this might be a practice he should continue.
