Bruce Springsteen surprises locals at Boston pub

BOSTON (WHDH) - Bruce Springsteen surprised bargoers during an unexpected visit to an Irish pub in Boston last week.

Tommy McCarthy, the owner of The Bebop on Boylston Street, said Springsteen and his wife had a few drinks and spent some time listening to a local music duo who signed up to play a live setlist on Friday night.

“He came in here and sat under the John Lennon picture,” McCarthy told 7News. “No one really bothered them.”

The pub shared a surveillance image that showed Springsteen hanging out near the bar.

McCarthy, who also owns The Burren in Somerville’s Davis Square, said Springsteen was friendly and cordial.

He also said the Boss told him he’d like to stop by again sometime.

“He’s very nice. He’s very down to earth,” McCarthy said of the iconic rocker.

It’s not clear why Springsteen was in Boston but he’s been spotted around the city before. His son went to Boston College.
