Cover Alert | Bruce Springsteen Covers Van Halen’s Jump
Springsteen and the E Street Band were the final performers of the three-day NCAA March Madness Music Festival in Reunion Park. The band walked out as “Sweet Georgia Brown” played over the P.A. The Boss brought a basketball out with him and gave the ball to his guitar tech, who was dressed as a referee. The tech threw the ball up in the air and the band kicked into the familiar synth line of “Jump.” Springsteen’s version of “Jump” saw the horn section simulate the synth line of Van Halen’s only number one hit.
