Bruce Springsteen stunned revellers at the SXSW festival in Texas on Wednesday night by joining Alejandro Escovedo onstage for an impromptu jam.
The Born to Run hitmaker is in Austin to make a highly-anticipated speech at the music extravaganza ahead of his concert on Thursday, but he announced his presence early with a surprise guest appearance, according to RollingStone.com.

Escovedo called the veteran rocker onstage at the close of his set at the Austin Music Awards on Wednesday, and Springsteen provided guitar and backing vocals on four songs, including The Midnight Train and a rousing rendition of the Rolling Stones’ track Beast of Burden.
