A little boy named Xabi went to see Bruce Springsteen perform with the E Street Band, knowing full well that he would most definitely be out well past curfew! He went prepared with a sign that read “I will be late to school tomorrow. Please sign my note :)”
He wasn’t sure if anyone would, of course, but it didn’t hurt to try!
After a 3 hour long show and dozens of songs, security escorted the boy and his father backstage. Before any other celebrities got to chat with Springsteen, Xabi was invited to sit next to him on the couch!
Dear Ms. Jackson, Xabi has been out very late rocking & rolling. Please excuse him if he is tardy!”
Springsteen asked how to spell the teacher’s name and posed for a picture to prove that it was all real! For a Springsteen fan, it was a dream come true! Imagine meeting one of your idols…and they turn out to be even better than you’d hoped!
Xabi had better frame that note! Many people would rather take the tardy for being late than to turn in such a priceless token from an awesome concert! Wouldn’t you?
This was a night that Xabi will never forget! And now he’s got an awesome story to tell at parties.
