The teenager who stole Springsteen's Brisbane Show.
He may be in trouble for skipping school, but a Brisbane teenager is counting his lucky stars after he got to jam alongside Bruce Springsteen on Thursday night.

The teen was called up on stage to sing to a crowd of adoring fans after holding up a sign requesting to share a song with The Boss.
Springsteen read the sign, "Missed school, in the s--- now, can I play Growin' Up with you?" out loud to the masses.

"Do you know the song?" Springsteen called out to the teen.
"You know it on guitar?...Well come on up!"
The boy raced to the stage and was handed a guitar before he tuned it and began pelting out the lyrics to the song from Greetings From Asbury Park, sharing the mic with Springsteen.

About halfway through, Springsteen asked the teen to play softer and told him he was about the boy's age when he got his first guitar.

"I brought it home and I realised it wasn't about how well you played it, it was about how good you looked doing it," he said.

"So I got in front of the mirror and I tried out some poses."

The pair pulled a couple of poses to a cheering crowd before carrying on with the song.

The teenager is reportedly Nathan Testa, who shared the stage with Springsteen at the age of 11 when the musical legend played in Brisbane in 2013.
