“Columbus, welcome to my dressing room,” Springsteen says. He then points to his wardrobe and comically shares, “These are my clothes. Those are my pants. I’ll only be wearing one pair of ’em when I come to see y’all on Sunday. And we are gonna rock you, me and the E Street Band, into the ground! I warned you. See you Sunday.”

Hanging from a wall in the dressing room is an Italian flag with the phrase “Our Love Is Real” written on it. The phrase, which is reference to a famous line in “Born to Run,” is now regularly used by Springsteen fans to express their affection for the rock legend.

As with Springsteen’s previous couple of promo clips, the new video was shot by his sister, veteran photographer Pamela Springsteen.

Fans React to Springsteen’s Post

Not surprisingly, Springsteen’s video inspired many fans to share messages of their own in the comments section of his Instagram page.

“Can’t wait to see you Sunday!” one fan wrote. “It will be my 53rd show and the first one that I’m taking my sons. We are psyched!”

Another commented, “These are the best little clips and exactly how social media should be used IMO. Delightful!”

A third fan quipped, Fantastic 💜 but now I wonder what [E Street band guitarist] Steve Van Zandt’s dressing room and clothes rail looks like!” Van Zandt, of course, is known for his flamboyant fashion sensibility and colorful head scarves.
