Watch: Bruce Springsteen Bring Early Christmas Cheer At Cork Show


While some may say that it is a few months too early, Bruce Springsteen was busy bringing some early Christmas cheer at his recent show in Cork.

Performing at the Rebel County’s Pairc Uí Chaoimh on Thursday night (May 16), The Boss and the E Street Band performed festive hit, ‘Santa Claus Is Coming To Town’ on stage.

Springsteen launched into the song, after he picked up a sign from the crowd asking him to play the song, while also showing the amount of days until Christmas.

Check out this impromptu performance of the ‘Santa Claus Is Coming To Town’ below.

Bruce Springsteen Performs Classic Pogues Track In Beautiful Tribute

This surprise festive performance comes just under a week after Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band treated the fans to a cover of classic Pogues track, ‘A Rainy Night In Soho’ in tribute to music legend Shane MacGowan.

Springsteen and The E Street Band were performing at Kilkenny’s Nowlan Park at the time.

When MacGowan died last November, Bruce released this statement: “Shane was one of my all-time favorite writers”. 

This performance was shared online by Aiken Promotions. You can check out the cover and Nova’s report on this here.

By the time Bruce concludes his run of Irish shows, he will have performed in front of one million fans in Ireland.

Here at Radio Nova, we are giving you the chance to be that millionth fan. See more below.

It was also confirmed that a new concert documentary on Bruce Springsteen would be made available to streaming services later this year.

A press release has said that the documentary “opens a new door to Springsteen’s creative process for fans around the world, sharing fly-on-the-wall footage of band rehearsals and special moments backstage — as well as hearing from Springsteen himself”.  

“These conversations follow Springsteen closely as he develops the story he wants to tell with this tour’s setlist — interspersed with rare archival clips of the E Street Band, underscoring themes of life, loss, mortality and community. In this way, it serves as an essential and never-before-seen chapter in an autobiographical series spanning Springsteen’s memoir Born to Run, Springsteen on Broadway, and the films Western Stars and Letter to You”.
