American legend Bruce Springsteen gives Irish fans two unforgettable Croke Park gigs
There were two rock legends for the price of one for Irish music lovers to enjoy when Bruce Springsteen headed to Dublin.
The American star played two sell out shows at Dublin’s famous Croke Park stadium.
During the second show, Springsteen invited a special guest onto the stage – local Dublin hero Bono. The U2 singer bowed before Springsteen as he joined ‘The Boss’ on stage.
The two stars performed a duet of ‘Because the Night’ – a song they had previously sang together at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame 25th anniversary at New York’s Madison Square Garden in 2009.
They also performed the song at Springsteen’s show six years earlier in Miami in 2003.
The fans at Croke Park were thrilled to see two of their heroes share a stage. Many took to social media to share their photos and videos.

However, this fan didn’t seem that thrilled to see Bono.

The majority of people loved the performance though – take a look at the video below.
A young girl at Springsteen’s first Croke Park show two days earlier had an even more exiting experience as she was invited on stage by the Boss.
Springsteen invited the fan up to help him sing ‘Waiting on a Sunny Day’. She wasn’t overawed by the occasion and even sang without music from Springsteen’s E Street band.
She then kept her composure as she told the crowd to give it up for the E Street Band, gave Springsteen a hug and even asked him for a selfie.
