Bruce Springsteen Drinks Beer, Scores Viral Video Hit [Watch]
[photogallerylink id=44414 align=left]Bruce Springsteen has scored a viral hit with a new YouTube video. Shot on a camera phone, the video shows Bruce venturing into the audience during a performance of “Raise Your Hand” in Philadelphia on Wednesday night. In recent years, “Raise Your Hand” has been the song that The E Street Band plays while Springsteen collects signs from the audience with song requests. In Philly, he took a different tact when he left the stage.
Instead of taking song requests, Bruce went into the lower level, grabbed a beer from a fan and chugged it, to the delight of the crowd. The video has been viewed nearly 34,000 times.
Springsteen’s tour hits New Jersey on Tuesday.
