Show a little faith, there could be magic in the night...

The paths of U2 and Bruce Springsteen have crossed many times over the years. (The above picture was taken in 1981). Bono and Bruce have each spoken at their bands' respective Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies and Bono even asked the Boss to play at U2's induction during their performance of 'I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For.' It has been widely rumored (perhaps wishfully so) that Bruce may make an appearance on stage with the band again at U2's East Rutherford shows. Normally we wouldn't join in such speculation, however it is worth mentioning that Bruce is in town this week, and will actually be playing at the The Theater at Continental Airlines Arena the night of May 19th, the day after U2's last New Jersey gig. While nothing is guaranteed, we're willing to bet that Bruce makes an appearance at at least one of the New Jersey Vertigo shows... or who knows, maybe Bono will stay in town another night and treat Bruce fans to a little E Street Elevation.

factoid: Bruce Springsteen also has a song entitled "Spanish Eyes".
