Rosie... Will You Marry Me?

Bruce Springsteen is legendary for having guest stars pop up on stage during various stops on the road, usually they're performing -- not popping the question! At Springsteen's Wednesday night (April 21st) gig in Boston, local musician Tim Brennan of the Dropkick Murphy's took the stage to propose to his now-fiancee. In celebration, the E Street Band then launched into the late-1974 Born To Run outtake "So Young And In Love." Brennan was joined by a couple of his bandmates afterwards for a rendition of Springsteen's traditional closer, "American Land."

Although Springsteen's shows are featuring more cool fan requests such as the Ramones' "I Wanna Be Sedated," it seems to be coming at the expense of tunes from his latest album Working On A Dream. Wednesday's Boston show only featured a measly three tracks from the new album -- including only the title track, "Outlaw Pete," and "Kingdom Of Days."
