Watch Bruce Springsteen Cover Lorde’s “Royals”

Watch Bruce Springsteen Cover Lorde’s “Royals”

At his Australian concerts last month, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band surprised fans with covers of Aussie bands like AC/DC, INXS, and the Bee Gees. And when the tour rolled into Auckland today, the Boss had a New Zealand-bred song up his sleeve. It’s a tune you might be familiar with! Springsteen opened his set at Mt. Smart Stadium with a solo acoustic take on Lorde’s “Royals,” tweaking the lyrics a bit (e.g., “You can call me king bee”). Watch some fan-captured video below.

He’ll play Auckland again tomorrow and return to the States next month.
