Bruce Springsteen joins Phish at Bonnaroo
Bruce Springsteen joined Phish on stage at Bonnaroo last night (June 14) as the band wrapped up the second of two performances at the Tennessee festival.

Frontman Trey Anastasio invited Springsteen to the stage as his “boyhood hero and still hero” and they launched into a cover of ‘Mustang Sally’ as well as two of The Boss’s tracks ‘Bobby Jean’ and ‘Glory Days’.

Springsteen addressed the current economic crisis during his set on Saturday night, saying: "You pick up the newspaper and you look out and you seen millions of jobs here in the country lost. Hundreds of thousands of jobs every month. You see things that I never thought I'd see. There's many, many folks struggling out there," reports the Associated Press.

In keeping with the downturn theme, he performed a cover of Stephen Foster’s ‘Hard Times Come Again No More’ during his three-hour set.
