Bruce Springsteen picks five favourite Springsteen songs

Bruce Springsteen’s music brings everybody together – be it friends, family or even strangers.

However, one fan who saw the Boss perform on Tuesday (30 May) was left surprised after spotting a fellow reveller on FaceTime with a rather unexpected friend.

George Shaw, who posts on Twitter as @gshizzy, shared a photo of Springsteen performing “Born to Run” at Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh.

In the snap, another crowd member, who was stood in front of him, could be seen FaceTiming her dog.

He shared the photo with the caption “Woof Springsteen”, and then added, in a follow-up post: “For some context, a massive shout out to the woman who FaceTimed her dog throughout the performance of ‘Born To Run’ last night. An icon.”

It remains unknown why the anonymous person FaceTimed their dog – but the binding factor of Springsteen’s music knows no bounds.

Of course, the replies section have been flooded with puns using Springsteen’s song titles, including “Dancing in the Bark” and “Barkness on the Edge of Town”.

One person wondered if this dog was one of the howling canines on Main Street the singer refers to in his song “The Promised Land”.
