Noted Bruce Springsteen fans Arcade Fire have honored the Boss in public before: In 2007, Springsteen brought the band out in Ottawa, Ontario to cover Neon Bible hit “Keep the Car Running.” Then, in 2009, Arcade Fire played Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A.” at President Obama’s staff ball. Finally, video has surfaced (via Consequence of Sound) of the band performing Springsteen’s 1984 hit late last month at the Canadian festival WayHome, before segueing into “Keep the Car Running.” Watch some fan-shot footage below.
