Video: Bruce Springsteen Covers “Royals”

by Rob Slater on March 01, 2014

Bruce Springsteen shifted his tour further down under to New Zealand last night after several shows in Australia. To kick off the festivities, The Boss started the show with a solo acoustic version of Lorde's wildly popular chart-topper, "Royals." Lorde, a New Zealand native, took home Song of the Year at this years Grammy Awards for the song.

Springsteen tweaked the lyrics just a bit, putting a more masculine spin on the lyrical content ("you can call me king bee"). Watch replay below.

Springsteen seems to be enjoying himself on this current tour, as The Boss has surprised fans with wild covers such as AC/DC's "Highway to Hell," "Stayin' Alive" by Bee Gees and INXS' "Don't Change."
