Bruce Springsteen signs kid's skipping school note

The Boss was performing at the Chase Center as part of his world tour with his E Street Band in San Francisco on Sunday (31.03.24), when he saw a sign that read: “Skipping school, sign my note?”

And the 74-year-old 'Born to Run' hitmaker obliged so the youngster could miss school on Monday (01.04.24).

Meanwhile, the 'Dancing in the Dark' hitmaker was recently unveiled as the first international artist set to be inducted as a fellow of Britain’s Ivors Academy.

Springsteen will make history by following Sir Paul McCartney, Kate Bush, Joan Armatrading and Sting by getting the honour.

The Ivors celebrate the UK’s best songwriters and composers.

Springsteen said: “In addition to recognising my songwriting, the award stands as a tribute to the fans and friends who have supported me and my work for the last 50 years.

“This entire country has made me feel welcome every step of the way, and for this, I will always remain deeply appreciative.”

The rock legend will become an Academy Fellow, the highest honour the organisation bestows.

Recognised as a pinnacle of creative musical achievement since they were first presented in 1956, winning an Ivor holds a special place in music as they are judged by award-winning songwriters and composers from The Ivors Academy.

Winners join a roll call of music’s biggest names including Adele, Stormzy, RAYE, Little Simz, Cathy Dennis, Annie Lennox, Amy Winehouse and John Lennon.

To commemorate him being named an Academy Fellow, a limited-edition vinyl of ‘The Best of Bruce Springsteen’ in a ‘Jersey Devil Red’ shade can be purchased from Amazon.

This year’s Ivors nominees will be announced on Tuesday 23 April, with the winners set to be revealed at The Ivors with Amazon Music at Grosvenor House in London a month later.

Springsteen has sold more than 140 million records worldwide, with his countless accolades including 20 Grammys, an Oscar and a Tony Award.

Springsteen has also been inducted into both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame, as well as being awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, America’s highest civilian award.
