Bruce Springsteen thrilled fans at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on Saturday when he chugged back a beer offered to him by a devotee as he made his way through the crowd during the show.

The Boss and his Rock & Roll Hall of Fame-inducted backing group the E Street Band stormed through a three-hour set as part of their headlining slot at the event in Louisiana – but it was one magic non-musical moment that will live on for many devotees there to see the marathon gig.

Springsteen accepted a beer from one fan and knocked back the drink to rousing applause.

He made it a special night for another fan when he kept true to tradition and invited her to dance with him onstage during a rendition of “Dancing in the Dark.”

As well as the hits and rarities, the rocker also brought guests onstage – former Rage Against the Machine star Tom Morello, who stepped in to replace Springsteen’s guitarist sideman Steven Van Zandt on tour last year, performed a duet of”The Ghost of Tom Joad,” and John Fogerty, who joined the headliner for a rousing rendition of his Creedence Clearwater Revival hit “Proud Mary.”
