Bruce Springsteen Forgets Which City He's Playing And Shouts Out Wrong Name At Gig

Springsteen was performing at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio when he made the mistake, exclaiming: "Party noises Pittsburgh!" before quickly correcting himself by saying: "And Cleveland, too!". Listen to audio of the moment beneath.

Terrie Carr, of 105.5 WDHA in Springsteen's native New Jersey, told Billboard that the mistake was likely due to Springsteen's heavy touring schedule.

"I have seen this happen frequently and I completely believe it to be a touring moment... especially on long tours, tours that dates are rescheduled or that are geographically piled on top of one another," she said.

"I have heard tons of bands call New Jersey New York, including The Rolling Stones. Guns N' Roses called New Jersey 'Philly', and a few Boston references as well."

 

Fan reports claim that Springsteen made up for the mistake later that same gig by taking a selfie while crowdsurfing.

Elton John Slams Janet Jackson

Elton John just slammed Janet Jackson for lip-syncing in concert.

“You know, music magazines writing a review of Janet Jackson saying, ‘This is the greatest show – four and a half stars.’ It’s lip-synced! Hello! That’s not a show! I’d rather go and see a drag queen,” the 68-year-old entertainer told Rolling Stone about the 49-year-old singer’s show.

A decade ago, Elton ripped Madonna for lip-syncing in concert, but he does have some regrets about that one.
