The revered music legend kicked off his opening show last week with something a bit different.

Instead of playing one of his popular songs he chose to play the 1962 pop gem 'Don't Hang Up' by The Orlons. 

He begins the show by telling the audience that he stands before them as, "embarrassed Americans". 

The song was used as a message that he said, "we gonna use it to send a letter back home."

It came just days after the phone call between US President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

The genius of his performance was not just in his political messages but also his ability to wow crowds with his timeless hits. 

Crowds weren't disappointed as the boss played many of his much-loved classics, which kept crowds singing and dancing all night. 

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band is set to play in Sydney tonight Qudos Bank Arena to packed out crowds.
