Hi everyone. I'm the proud Dad watching my son being pulled on stage by Bruce to sing Waiting' On A Sunny Day. This moment was priceless for me and never for one minute thought such a thing would happen! There are some great YouTube footage of this but I wanted a real good 'still shot' of them together. Can anyone help with this? Thanks for reading.

Good voice and fearless in front of 1000's... I loved the way Bruce whispered in his ear to cue in the band...You must be so proud... I've got my 6 year old son on a crash course for next tour so I'll need some tips... I guess being cute helps!!!

Put on your best dress, baby
And darlin' fix your hair up right
'Cause there's a party, honey
Way down beneath the neon lights
All day you've been working that hard line
Now tonight you're gonna have a good time...

Great thanks! It was extra special for me cos I was the singer in a Springsteen tribute from 2004 to last year when we called it a day so that moment was surreal, bizarre, emotional and a gift from God I'm sure! I've tried the papers but they are only allowed to stay for first three to four songs.

Hi
I think this must be your son. Sorry a little out of focus, had three large KISS fans thinking I was torpedo girl!

Nice for you but I wish Bruce would stop this cheesy bit of the show. We've all seen it now. It's the worst part of the show to go with a crap song.

Thanks everyone. Please Facebook Springsteen experience uk. If that doesn't work I'll have to ask my brother cos I don't get computer technology really! Appreciate it Ceinwen.

Made my night anyway

I took my usual toilet break then but was back in time to hear your lad sing - he was fantastic! No wonder you're a proud dad ... wonderful memories for you both.
