Bruce Springsteen was in New York City over the weekend, where he attended the Kristen Ann Carr Fund benefit event at Tribeca Grill Loft on Saturday night. The one-night event in lower Manhattan aimed to raise money for medical progress against soft tissue cancer sarcoma, and was named in branding after the daughter of Springsteen’s co-manager, Barbara Carr, whose daughter passed away from sarcoma back in 1993.
Springsteen’s surprise appearance was highlighted with a performance alongside the Tangier Blues Band, the rock outfit of notable rock photographer and director Danny Clinch. With Springsteen leading the way on guitar and vocals, the band performed a pair of covers including Johnny Rivers‘ “Rockin’ Pneumonia and Boogie Woogie Flu” and blues standard “Down the Road Apiece”. Fans who couldn’t make it to Saturday’s event can watch the video below to relive the band’s performance of “Down the Road Apiece”.

The pop-up performance on Saturday acted as the latest gig in which Springsteen has delivered for his New York City fans over the last few years. Springsteen wrapped his highly-acclaimed theatrical show, Springsteen On Broadway, just this past December after 236 performances since launching at the Walter Kerr Theatre in October 2017. The show has since been professionally recorded and released as a concert special on Netflix.
