Bruce rocks Stone Pony before he goes Dutch

New York Post - Marc Berman

May 4th, 2003 

Before jetting to the Netherlands today for the European leg of his latest tour,

Bruce Springsteen and his wife Patti popped on stage at the Stone Pony in

Asbury Park, NJ.

Bruce and Patti performed two numbers Friday night with the fiddler Soozie Tyrell,

one of the E Street Band's newest members.

Tyrell, who also sings in the band, played the Stone Pony for the first time and

sang most of the tracks from her new CD, "White Lines."

Tyrell introduced her surprise guests simply as "my two dear friends."

Wearing a tan Miami Dolphins cap pulled down low and an old brown leather jacket,

Springsteen with Tyrell on a ballad of hers, "St. Genevieve." Springsteen then joined

Tyrell during the encores, rocking the house with the Rolling Stones classic "Its All

Over Now," in which The Boss broke into a riveting one minute guitar solo.

The rock couple stopped for beers at the bar in the back, partying one last time before

gearing up for their European trip.

The band kicks off a seven-week European tour Tuesday in Rotterdam - with stops

in Germany, Italy, Spain, Ireland, England, Belgium and France.
