Bruce Springsteen writes apology note for schoolboy: ‘He’s been out very late rocking and rolling’

Nine-year-old Xabi Glovsky stayed up late for Springsteen's gig in Los Angeles earlier this eek (March 15)

Bruce Springsteen 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 earlier this week (March 15), reportedly preempting the late night which 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!” See below.

Glovsky’s father Scott explained to fan site Backstreets: “Bruce sat down on a couch and started to talk with Xabi, asking for the name of his teacher and how Xabi spelled his name, pulling out a piece of paper and a pen.”

“As Xabi sat next to him on the couch, Bruce thoughtfully and artistically created this beautiful note. It was very interesting to watch the artist at work. They talked for a few minutes, and Bruce was incredibly nice, caring and generous.”

It follows a similar news story last month when a Bruce Springsteen gig was blamed by a father in his excuse for his child’s lateness to school.
