Bruce Springsteen Rocks Isle of Wight Fest With Beatles Cover

Capping off a mega set of 25 originals, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band ended their headlining set at the long-standing U.K. music festival Isle of Wight Festival on Sunday (June 24) with a cover of “Twist and Shout,” made most famous by The Beatles. While Springsteen has previously used the song to close his shows, the raucousness of his cover is evidenced via high-res, professionally-shot footage from Isle of Wight.

Despite the dreary weather, Springsteen kept things light and positive through out the performance, cracking jokes to the audience. During “Dancing in the Dark,” The Boss pulled one lucky lady on stage, a la Courtney Cox in the song’s video.

Springsteen got the three-hour party started with “Badlands” and kept the house rocking with other great hits like “Out In The Street” and “Born In the USA” before closing the night with “Twist and Shout.” Though he played many of his past hits, Springsteen made sure to include a hefty chunk of songs from his latest album, Wrecking Ball.
