Bruce Springsteen performs with The Killers at Madison Square Garden

Bruce Springsteen joined The Killers as a surprise guest during the Las Vegas band’s October 1 concert at New York’s at Madison Square Garden.

The group welcomed the New Jersey rocker to the stage for their three-song encore, which opened with Springsteen’s 1978 classic, “Badlands”, and was followed by the group’s 2008 track, “A Dustland Fairytale” – which they re-recorded and issued as a duet with Springsteen last year – and wrapped up with the iconic “Born To Run.”

E Street Band saxophonist Jake Clemons – the nephew of the late Clarence Clemons – appeared on both Springsteen songs during the event.

The surprise appearance follows news that Springsteen will release a new collection of soul covers entitled “Only The Strong Survive” this fall.

Due November 11, the project features fifteen soul music greats as the rocker celebrates gems from the legendary catalogues of Motown, Gamble and Huff, Stax and many more.

Springsteen is sharing a version of the 1965 Frank Wilson single, “Do I Love You (Indeed I Do)”, as the first preview to the set; the singer will regroup with the E Street Band in February for a 2023 international tour, with US dates starting February 1 in Tampa, FL.
