Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen turns 64 today. Born on September 23, 1949 in Longbranch, New Jersey. Springsteen (a.k.a. 'The Boss') has since become a major American icon in the world of singing and songwriting.
Springsteen is currently in the South American portion of his Wrecking Ball tour. He proved that he's still got it, wowing crowds 25 years after his last performance in the region.
According to the AFP, his concert in Rio de Janeiro, part of the Rock in Rio music festival, opened with a surprise. Springsteen opened with "Sociedade Alternativa," a local favorite by famous Brazilian rock artist Raul Seixas. He followed with his own hits, including his iconic song, "Born in the USA."
Of course, Springsteen took time to enjoy the sunny beaches of Rio while he wasn't on stage. According to the Daily Mail, Bruce spent some downtime with his friends while showing off his impressive tanned and toned body.
Have a Happy Birthday, Bruce! Keep on rocking the world (we know you will).
