AceShowbiz - Bruce Springsteen surprised fans at the launch of his own exhibition in New Jersey over the weekend, September 28-29, by making an appearance and performing.
"Springsteen: His Hometown" opened at the Monmouth County Historical Association in Freehold and the "Born to Run" hitmaker was on hand to celebrate the event's debut on Saturday.
"I can't stay long," he said before performing "Light of Day". "I've got my family in the city, but I wanted to just come down and thank everybody for supporting the Historical Association... It's nice to be honoured in my hometown."
The show opened to the public on Sunday and will run for a year. It offers fans a comprehensive look at "how Monmouth County has been thematically woven into Bruce Springsteen’s music and art throughout his career."
"Springsteen: His Hometown" displays over 150 unique items featuring selections from both the Monmouth County Historical Association and The Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music at Monmouth University.
