Bruce Springsteen invites young fan to perform 'Growin' Up' with him onstage, brings the house down

A video of Bruce Springsteen inviting an Australian school kid onstage to perform with him has emerged online and it’s something quite special.

Springsteen is seen speaking to the audience member holding up a sign which read: “Missed school in the s**t now, can I play Growin’ Up with you?”

Springsteen tells him to “come on up” and it turns out that not only can the teenager - called Nathan - play the song on guitar, he can sing it in a decent pitch as well.

Springsteen, clearly loving it, joins in and there are several moments where you can see Nathan looking around in utter disbelief.

“Before we continue,” Springsteen says, bringing the band down, “a lesson”.

“When I was your age, I got my first guitar, I brought it home and I realised, it wasn’t how well you played it, it was how good you looked doing it.

"So I got in front of the mirror and I tried out some different poses.”

Springsteen and Nathan then tried out a bunch of different stances before the legend said “and when you find one, it sounds like this”… and they brought the house down.

anyway liam was bullied when he was young and that hasn’t really stopped even with being in the band because he always gets the short end of the stick around here lol like he can never please y'all sometimes and he breaks his back to try and never stops trying. and then to tell him you love him after MAKING SURE he sees all the nasty stuff you say about him like no you’re just disgusting haha you don’t deserve like 10seconds of his time tbh
