Bruce Springsteen and The Roots Perform at Denmark's Roskilde Festival

Bruce Springsteen and The Roots Perform at Denmark's Roskilde Festival -

Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band were joined by the Roots this past Saturday (July 7th) onstage at the Roskilde Festival, reports UltimateClassicRock

There was nearly 100,000 in attendance at the Danish festival to witness the coming together of the classic rockers and the hip-hop/neo soul outfit, who also became the house band on US talk show Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in 2009.

However, this is not the first time the New Jersey 'Boss' and The Roots have performed together. In March (2012) Springsteen appeared on the NBC show and the two acts ended a fantastic performance that ended with the studio audience up on stage.

Joining Springsteen's already huge E Street band (17-peice) were Black Thought, F. Knuckles, Captain Kirk Douglas, James Poyser, Mark Kelley, Kamal Gray and Damon "Tuba Gooding Jr."
