Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band stopped in Spain on their tour, and former first lady Michelle Obama joined them on stage.
throughout a rendition of “Glory Days” throughout the evening, Michelle rocked out with a tambourine and sang background vocals. According to People, Springsteen's wife and bandmate Patti Scialfa joined her. They were also joined by actress Kate Capshaw.
Michelle Obama's husband, Barack Obama, was reportedly seen cheering his wife on from the audience during her unexpected visit, according to Insider.
'Born in the U.S.A.' and 'Born to Run' came before the song was performed.
Michelle and Barack attended Springsteen's concert in Spain after dining with the musician and Steven Spielberg, Capshaw's husband, the previous evening at Palace Hotel's Amar sea cuisine restaurant, according to The Guardian.
They were also seen on camera exploring Barcelona on foot and going to the Moco Museum.
Springsteen and the Obamas have been pals for a very long time. He and Barack, 61, first launched their RENEGADES: Born in the USA podcast and companion book in 2021.
At the time, Barack said to CBS Sunday Mornings, “I always say when I first met Bruce he sort of appears like a fairly timid man, given he gets out there and performs before tens of thousands of people for hours at a time.
And we simply got up in situations where we had these lengthy discussions, the former president added, “and I felt the things we're talking about – what does it mean to be a man, what does it mean to be an American? You know what? These were things that were just kind of bubbling up over a dinner. Perhaps hearing this would be beneficial for people.
When he first contacted me, I assumed he had dialled the incorrect number, Springsteen said. I replied, “Okay, I'll figure this out. You want me to do what? I just graduated from high school in Freehold, New Jersey, and I play the guitar.
The two, who met while running for office in 2008, started their podcast towards the end of February 2021. The two hold candid conversations on racism, masculinity, parenting, their jobs, and their improbable friendship on the project.
