Bruce Springsteen To Get The System Down In Auckland

Bruce Springsteen’s show in Auckland, New Zealand tonight may just very well be the scene of a System of a Down appearance for Serj Tankian. Tankian is also in Auckland and he has been hanging out with Tom Morello.

Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello is a current member of Bruce’s E Street Band and tweeted a photo of Serg and himself catching a few rays on a New Zealand beach yesterday. ‘Surf’s up! Spectacular day with my great friend, comrade in arms & beach bro Serj Tankian in gorgeous New Zealand”.

Springsteen’s re-recorded his 1995 song ‘The Ghost of Tom Joad’ with Tom Morello for his recent ‘High Hopes’ album. Rage Against The Machine covered the song on their 2000 album ‘Renegades’. ‘The Ghost Of Tom Joad’ has been an essential part of the Australian setlist and will no doubt be played in Auckland again this weekend. Will Serj join Tom, Bruce and the E Street Band for the song or will Bruce have a different song in mind for Serj Tankian if he appears.

In Australia, Eddie Vedder popped up at the Melbourne and Brisbane shows.

Jimmy Barnes is the special guest of Bruce Springsteen for these last two southern hemisphere shows.

Bruce Springsteen will perform tonight and tomorrow (March 1 and 2) at Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand.
