Bruce and His Handsome Friend

Last night in Red Bank, Jackson Browne played a benefit show for Terry Magovern’s ALS charity (Joan Dancy and P.A.L.S.). No points for guessing who showed up as a special guest. At the intimate Two River Theatre, after a lengthy acoustic set (including “I Am a Patriot,” “Late for the Sky,” “In the Shape of a Heart,” and “The Pretender”) Browne was joined by his Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductor, Bruce Springsteen, for two songs: “Running on Empty,” and “Will the Circle Be Unbroken?”

The pair also performed together the previous night, even more low-key, when Springsteen was on hand for a World Hunger Year benefit dinner honoring Browne and Jon Landau Management. For a little music at the end of the night, Springsteen joined in on Harry Chapin’s “Circle,” grabbing a guitar and strumming along.
