Bob Seger fans in New York got a surprise Thursday night when Bruce Springsteen showed up early in the show to add his own brand of heartland sauce to Seger's "Old Time Rock 'n Roll."

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.
