Bruce Springsteen's First Encore of His Broadway Debut
Bruce Springsteen delivered the first encore of his newly minted Broadway career, inviting fans to take photos during the bonus song.
After delivering his normal closing number, "Born to Run," he said, "You're a beautiful audience. You're so good, you get the first encore ever. … Feel free to take a picture." He then performed "This Hard Land," which appeared on his 1995 Greatest Hits album.
One fan uploaded an edited version of a clip of the track to YouTube, noting, "At the end of the Broadway show, Bruce Springsteen personally told the audience that they were then allowed to film and take photos. The entire audience did so."
Springsteen's Broadway residency started at the Walter Kerr Theatre in October last year, with the run extended several times to a current end date of December 15.
