Watch Bruce and The E Street Band and The Roots play “The E Street Shuffle” from the Roskilde Festival in Denmark
This past weekend Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band and the Roots performed at the Roskilde Festival. Questlove had this to say about it. Bruce pulled The Roots up on stage (“The Roots were incredible! The Roots were incredible!” he shouted) to peform “The E Street Shuffle” on Saturday. From Bruce Springsteen.net:
On July 7th, Bruce and the Band played for nearly 100,000 people at the classic Roskilde Festival, forty minutes outside of Copenhagen. Bruce and E Street took the stage following a stellar performance by The Roots. Naturally, when Bruce was ready to do “E Street Shuffle,” he called his friends of The Legendary Roots Crew back up on stage to reprise their joint performance of the song from Late Night With Jimmy Fallon this past March. The scintillating performance was captured in this Chris Hilson line cut with John Cooper’s board mix. Participating in the performance from The Roots are Black Thought, Kamal Gray, F. Knuckles, Captain Kirk Douglas, Damon “Tuba Gooding Jr.” Bryson, James Poyser, and Mark Kelley.
Of course being Roots and Bruce Springsteen fans we love this video. The big question remains: Where was Questlove? How did he miss this?. Bruce and the band return to Philly on September 2nd and 3rd at Citizens Bank Park. Tickets are available here.
