Bruce Springsteen Invited Kids On Stage To Perform During Christchurch Concert

CHRISTCHURCH, NZ (CelebrityAccess) — Bruce Springsteen helped to make a lifelong fan's dream come true when he invited said fan's daughter to perform on stage during their concert in Christchurch on Feb. 21st.

According to the New Zealand Herald, Chris Dockrill was in the audience for his tenth Springsteen show, along with his wife, wife Kerryn Larwood and their two daughters Chelsey Larwood, 18, and Hayley Dockrill, 11, when The Boss noticed a sign Dockrill's daughter Hayley was holding.

Later, as the band segued into "Dancing in the Dark," Springsteen invited Haley and another boy from the audience up on stage to help drum.

"Bruce came along and he just pointed the finger at her so I lifted her over the security barrier and she ran up to the drum kit and started drumming away," Dockrill told the Herald.

"It was perfectly in tune but I don't know how she did it because we don't have any musical ability."

The pair each controlled a drumstick and played in time with drummer Max Weinberg, after which the drumsticks were autographed.

As for what the sign said, it isn't quite clear. The Herald reported that it was something about U.S. president Donald Trump and drumming, but Dockrill said the sign wasn't even Haley's and had been given to them by U.S. fans while waiting in line. – Staff Writers
