Bruce Springsteen Plays “Jungleland” Without Clarence Clemons For The First Time [VIDEO]
Bruce Springsteen is currently overseas on the European leg of his ‘Wrecking Ball Tour’. Tributes to Bruce Springsteen’s former partner in crime, Clarence Clemons, have been staples at every concert, including moments of silence, highlight reels and crowd chanting. Clarence Clemons’ nephew, Jake, has also joined the band on the tour and has not missed a beat.
With all of the love and support that has been poured out by the band and crowd for the Big Man, one thing has not occurred until this past weekend. The song that, in the eyes of most fans, defines the career of Clarence Clemons, “Jungleland”, had not been performed. Bruce Springsteen decided to break it out during a performance in Gothenburg, Sweden.
The Boss claimed in a quick speech before the song that Sweden had been one of the biggest supporters of Clemons over the years and that they had “given him a home.” Check out the video below of a chilling performance. In my opinion, Jake Clemons nails the iconic sax solo. Maybe this means we will be hearing the legendary “Jungleland” when Bruce and the E Street Band come back to the states and they start performing in the tri-state area. I have tickets to the show on Labor Day in Philadelphia so I’m crossing my fingers.
