Bruce Springsteen on SNL: Santa Claus, Songs from The River – VIDEO


The return of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to the Saturday Night Live Christmas show (Dec 19) required a super-special musical guest, which was none other than Bruce Springsteen and the E Street band.

The Boss performed two songs from The Ties That Bind: The River Collection, a 4 CD box set that chronicles Bruce Springsteen and The E Street band around the time they released the pivotal album, The River.

Songs played included “Meet Me in the City,” an outtake from The River, and the classic single, “The Ties That Bind.”  Of course, it wouldn’t be the SNL Christmas show without a proper holiday send off. Bruce and the band, with special guest, Paul McCartney on bells, sang the cast out with a raucous rendition of “Santa Claus is Comin to Town.”
