Bruce Springsteen rocks Clash classic in Florida

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band rocked The Clash’s 1979 classic “Clampdown”, as they opened their April 29th concert in Sunrise, Florida, and video from the event is available.

Originally featured on The Clash’s “London Calling” album, Springsteen’s performance included a lead vocal duet with Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello, who is on the road with the New Jersey rocker.

Springsteen is currently playing shows across the US as part of his "High Hopes" world tour.

Last month, Springsteen inducted The E Street Band into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame at a ceremony in New York.

Pianist Roy Bittan, bassist Garry Tallent, guitarist and singer Patti Scialfa, guitarists Nils Lofgren and Steven Van Zandt, and drummer Max Weinberg shared in the Award For Musical Excellence, a special honor bestowed by the Hall of Fame on sidemen.

The late Clarence Clemons and Danny Federici were inducted posthumously, while original members Vini Lopez and David Sancious joined the current lineup in the honor.
