Boss Serenades Airport Crew

Sun Jul 03, 2005 10:47 pm

I think this is cool as anything else that could have happened on this day, when most likely those employees and traveler's at iceland's airport get treated to this surprise! Imagine, your probably having a boring, uneventful evening when this happens:

NEW YORK - After playing to sold-out audiences throughout Europe, Bruce Springsteen added one last impromptu gig to his overseas itinerary: an airport terminal in Iceland.

Mr. Springsteen was headed back to the United States after playing a show in Berlin when his plane stopped early Wednesday to refuel at Keflavik International Airport. The Boss strolled into the terminal with his acoustic guitar and played a six-song set for the airport’s overnight shift, an airport official confirmed.

"He just came in and did some songs," said Federick Johnson, a service manager at the airport 30 miles southwest of Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik.

The 2 a.m. mini-set reportedly included Springsteen staples Dancing in the Dark, Bobby Jean and This Hard Land, along with Working on the Highway, Does This Bus Stop at 82nd Street? and I’m on Fire.

By the way, there was a topic a while ago on what plane the Boss uses, any one ever find out?
