Bruce Springsteen fully embraced his rock 'n' roll side during a performance at a jazz festival in New Orleans when he entered the crowd and accepted a beer from an audience member. Springsteen took the beer and chugged it within minutes, which got the audience roaring in applause.
After The Boss had completed his drink, he threw the can back into the audience much to their delight. Springsteen made a few trips into the crowd and handed out high fives during his three-hour set.
AP added that this performance with Springsteen and the E Street Band during the New Orleans' Jazz & Heritage Festival overall pleased fans that attended the show but it did leave a few things to be desired.
Springsteen played for over three hours and treated the audience to some classics including; "Hungry Heart," "Mary Don't You Weep," ''Wrecking Ball," and ''Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out."
It was noted that Springsteen did not play his two most popular songs "Born in the U.S.A" and "Glory Days."
This was the third time that Springsteen had played the festival. Overall fans seemed to enjoy Springsteen embracing his older songs and interacting with the fans, NOLA added.
