Bruce Springsteen, 73, takes a major tumble on stage as concerned workers rush in to help The Boss onto his feet
Bruce Springsteen unintentionally made his Amsterdam show one fans won’t soon forget after he took a major tumble on stage.
The I’m On Fire singer, 73, drew gasps from fans as he tripped and fell after climbing several steps on the stage on Saturday.
Fans watched The Boss roll onto his back and lay on the floor with his guitar still in hand before his concerned colleagues promptly rushed over to assist him.
His guitarist stepped in to remove his instrument while two concert workers manually hoisted Bruce back onto his feet.
Fortunately, the fall didn’t shake Bruce up too much.
Alleviating any concerns his fans may have had, Bruce, who is currently on a world tour, quickly smiled before addressing the audience.

‘Good night everybody!’ he roared into the microphone while throwing his hand into the air and beginning another song.
Bruce has been traveling the world for his latest tour, Springsteen and E Street Band 2023 Tour.
His tour consists of 37 shows in 32 locations. His next stops will be in Landgraaf, Netherlands, Zurich, Switzerland, and Birmingham, UK.
It comes after Bruce courted staunch criticism last month for pressing on with his concert in the disaster-hit Italian region of Emilia-Romagna.
Rescue crews desperately tried to reach towns and villages in northern Italy still isolated by heavy rains and flooding as authorities began mapping out clean-up and reconstruction plans.
The extreme weather behind the disaster – a prolonged drought punctuated by 36 hours of intense rainfall, two weeks after another downpour – led to two dozen rivers and tributaries bursting their banks.
The force of water sent torrents of mud tearing through entire towns in Emilia-Romagna, flooding storefronts and basements.
Ferrara mayor Alan Fabbri wrote on Facebook: ‘I am sorry if anyone may have thought that Ferrara was insensitive to the tragedy in Romagna just because it did not cancel the concert by ‘The Boss’.

But ‘The Boss’ refused to cancel his gig, which took place on May 18 in the town of Ferrara roughly 30 miles from the epicenter of the catastrophe.
Up to 50,000 fans were slated to attend the concert but the widespread flooding meant many could not make it.
A local councillor described Springsteen’s decision to continue with the gig as an insult to the ‘pain, desperation and difficulty’ of those affected, while Italian TV presenter Tiziana Ferrario tweeted: ‘I love Bruce Springsteen but given the victims and the towns submerged by mud, the Ferrara concert seems out of tune.
‘Once [upon a time] you would go and shovel and help who was buried in mud rather than singing and dancing thoughtlessly in the same area.’
Numerous people have been killed in the region as a result of the flooding.
