Bruce Springsteen Invites Taylor Swift To His Tour


November 18, 2022

"She's welcome anytime."

Bruce Springsteen was Jimmy Fallon's guest on "The Tonight Show" and confirmed that he will attend at least one Taylor Swift concert as part of her "The Eras Tour" next year.

Springsteen will appear as a guest on "The Tonight Show" for three consecutive episodes through Nov. 16, and will return again for the show's special Thanksgiving episode.

The 73-year-old, who will perform mostly songs from his new soul/R&B cover album, Only The Strong Survive, opened his set with Frank Wilson's Do I Love You (Indeed I Do).

He was flanked by a small choir, a full band that included his wife Patti Scialfa on vocals and E Street Band keyboardist David Sancious, along with a brass and string ensemble. See his appearance here.

Bruce Springsteen then sat down on Jimmy Fallon's couch for a full-on conversation.

The iconic singer talked about the new ways he's approaching gospel on his 'Only The Strong Survive' album, preparing for his first tour with the E Street Band in six years and getting used to playing gigs which often last about three hours.

While reflecting on his vast catalog of classic songs, Bruce Springsteen also revealed what he considers to be the song that pisses him off.

“I have one that really always bothers me. On 'The River,' where I had so many good outtakes, so many good extra songs, but there's a song called 'Crush On You,'" Springsteen said, quickly commenting upon hearing some murmurs in the audience: "People say : "This is my favorite!"".

Later, when asked by Jimmy Fallon if he could perform with Taylor Swift due to the two artists' collaboration with Bleachers producer Jack Antonoff, Bruce Springsteen said he would definitely attend a concert by the pop star with his daughter Jessica , which is a big Swiftie.

And if Taylor Swift wants to appear on his own tour? "She's welcome on E Street anytime," Bruce Springsteen said.
