Bruce Springsteen brought his 90-year-old mum onstage at a show in New York yesterday (March 28).

The singer received a standing ovation when he danced with his mother Adele during 'Ramrod' at the Madison Square Garden gig. You can watch footage of the performance below.

Springsteen previously cancelled the show in January in the aftermath of Storm Jonas. At the time he posted a free download of a gig in Chicago for fans as an apology.

Adele Springsteen previously joined her son onstage for 'Dancing In The Dark' at shows in Philadelphia in 2009 and 2012.


Earlier this year, he spotted an 89-year-old grandmother and invited her on stage to dance during the band's encore performance of the same track.

Springsteen and his E Street Band will play a series of open air gigs this summer in the UK, starting at Manchester's Etihad on May 25. From there Springsteen will perform at Hampden Park in Glasgow on June 1 and Coventry's Ricoh Arena on June 3. The tour will then close with the Wembley gig on June 5. 

The Boss is touring to mark his 1980 album 'The River'. The album was reissued in 2015 with Springsteen expected to play the album in full on his stadium dates. 

Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band will play:

Manchester, Etihad (May 25)
Glasgow, Hampden Park (June 1)
Coventry, Ricoh Arena (June 3)
London, Wembley Stadium (June 5)


Last week, he wrote a late note for a schoolboy after a concert he attended went on for three-and-a-half hours.

Nine-year-old Xabi Glovsky attended Springsteen's gig at the Los Angeles Sports Arena, reportedly pre-empting the late night with a sign that read: "Bruce, I will be late to school tomorrow. Please sign my note."

After the show, Springsteen wrote a note of his own for the youngster, which read: "Xabi has been out very late rocking + rolling. Please excuse him if he is tardy!"
