Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band & The Roots: The E Street Shuffle

Audiences got a double treat at Northern Europe's largest and oldest music festival at Roskilde, west of Copenhagen, Denmark this past weekend when The Roots joined Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band on stage. Both bands are said to have delivered the hands down best concerts at this year's event: The Boss and the E Street Band did a 3 hr. set on July 7; the Roots did a 90 min. show on the same date.

The two bands performed the same song on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in March with Tom Morello sitting in. As a bonus, the host provided (more) cow bell.

Trivia: In 2000 then Saturday Night Live cast member Jimmy Fallon had a hard time keeping a straight face during the now legendary SNL skit that spawned the catch phrase "More Cowbell".
