It was a family affair during the finale of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band‘s two-night stand at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. The singer called up his mother, Adele Springsteen, to dance along to his hit famous ’80s hit, “Dancing in the Dark.”
“My mom is here,” he announced to the sold-out crowd at Thursday night’s show.
Adele joined her son on stage for a slow dance, and then took a turn singing the song center stage beside Springsteen and daughter-in-law, Patti Scialfia.
“Not too bad for almost 90,” said Springsteen, who pointed out that nearly his entire family, including cousins and aunts, were in attendance.
The nearly three-hour show featured five songs not yet performed on his “Wrecking Ball” tour, which kicked off earlier this month in Florida. New songs in the set included, “Trapped,” “Streets of Philadephia,” “Night,” “Kitty’s Back,” and “Darkness on the Edge of Town.”
Earlier in the night, Springsteen gave himself a mock introduction, joking that his new CD “Wrecking Ball” debuted at number one for “one, consecutive, week.”
The rocker promised the audience, which included New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, that the band would return to Philiadephia.
