Patti Scialfa Makes a Rare Appearance on Springsteen Show, Singing Two Duets with Bruce


For most of Bruce Springsteen’s tour over the last year, wife Patti Scialfa has been MIA.

Patti was a key part of the E Street Band for past tours, but for this one she opted out. She had her reasons including welcoming a grandchild at home.

But tonight Patti was back in the show, in Los Angeles, and the fans went nuts. She sang two songs with Bruce — “Fire” and “Tougher than the Rest.”

I wish I’d been there! Patti is a blistering rocker with a great voice. Was this a one off thing? Or will we see more of her? And PS, she looks amazing in the videos.

Welcome back, Patti!
