Video: Bruce Springsteen takes the stage at Bob Seger's New York show
The two Rock 'n Roll Hall Of Fame inductees traded verses on the song, and Springsteen stepped into a pair of lead guitar breaks as a clearly delighted Seger clapped along.
Seger is on the final stretch of his 2011 tour, and Springsteen has just begun to unveil dates for his 2012 tour, the first E Street Band outing to be undertaken without founding member Clarence Clemons, who passed away in June after suffering a major stroke.
The visit on arguably Springsteen's home turf, returns a 31-year-old favor when Seger hopped on stage in Detroit to perform "Thunder Road" with Springsteen and the E Street Band during the band's tour for The River in October of 1980.
Springsteen previously tipped his hat to Seger during the E Street Band's 2009 tour when he played "Ramblin' Gamblin' Man" during the "stump the band" portion of the band's Detroit show.
