Bruce Springsteen & Jon Stewart Forever


It’s become a pretty much universally acknowledged fact that there was no greater way for The Daily Show to go out than with Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band. Jon Stewart and the Boss have been mutual fans for years, something publicly cemented in their 2012 interview for Rolling Stone, where Springsteen told the journalist megafan, “your show is basically an interpretive media class.” Springsteen and his band played “Land of Hope and Dreams” at Stewart’s request, then ended the show’s long run with “Born to Run.” If you haven’t caught the final show yet, haven’t quite dealt with the fact that the show’s over, or just feel the need to see the Boss, watch the video after the jump.
