Bruce Springsteen surprises early arrivals in L.A. - see the video
About an hour and a half before he took the stage for his Friday night (4/27) performance at the Los Angeles Sports Arena, Bruce Springsteen surprised the early birds by playing a quick acoustic rendition of his early song "For You."
According to reports, Springsteen was checking out the stage with some relatives when he picked up a guitar and played the song, which appears on his 1973 debut album, "Greetings from Asbury Park." YouTube video of the performance is embedded below; Springsteen takes the stage at the 2:50 mark.
