Springsteen Plays Lorde’s “Royals” & AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell” in Down Under Concerts

Bruce Springsteen played in Auckland, New Zealand this past weekend and gave a big nod to Lorde, the country’s 17-year-old star. Above you can watch him perform a Springsteenian version of her mega hit, Royals. Then, in a little bit of a contrast, we have the Boss paying tribute to another great local act, AC/DC and their rock anthem “Highway to Hell.” That was at a show in Perth, Australia. And, if you want a little more contrast, don’t miss the Brisbane performance of the Bee Gee’s Stayin’ Alive. No joke. Stay tuned for some Men at Work….
