NEW YORK (AP) - Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band worked a packed house into a total frenzy at Harlem’s legendary Apollo Theater.

Springsteen sprang through the balconies of the historic landmark and shimmied down pipes attached to the wall.

He also stretched, Gumby-like, to grasp the hand of a guy who leaned out of a box seat.

Jake Clemons, nephew of the late Clarence Clemons, blasted out sax solos to a great crowd response.

He’s part of Springsteen’s new brass section. The Boss recently noted that it “takes a village” to fill the Big Man’s shoes.

The show aired live as part of SiriusXM radio’s 10th anniversary celebration. It was a prelude to a world tour that launches March 18 in Atlanta.
