Employees working the Tuesday night shift at Keflavík Airport got an unexpected visit from the savior of Rock & Roll, Bruce Springsteen. According to Fréttablaðið, the singer and songwriter’s private jet stopped over on its way to the US from Berlin where Springsteen had been playing on the 28th of June. During the month of June, Springsteen has been touring Europe with his acoustic guitar promoting his first record in three years, Devils and Dust.
The employees commented that Springsteen showed no pretense and was very down-to-earth, chatting away with them. His friend asked the airport employees if they would like to listen to a few tunes. Springsteen then played six songs including “The River.” After the impromptu concert he asked what typical Icelandic food consisted of – the fans were quick to answer “Black Death and Shark”.
On another note, ´80´s pop band Duran Duran will play in Egilshöll Stadium tonight.
