During Springsteen’s concert at the Chase Center in San Francisco on Sunday (March 31), the musician’s attention was brought to a young fan in the front row. The kid was carrying a handwritten sign that read “Skipping school, sign my note?”.

The absentee note would allow for the young fan to skip school on Monday (April 1) after attending Springsteen’s concert. Springsteen would go on to sign the note, as captured by another fan in attendance. It is currently unclear if the young fan’s signed absentee note was accepted by their school.

Watch a clip of Springsteen signing the fan’s absentee note below.

Elsewhere during the March 31 show, Springsteen kicked off the concert with ‘Light Of Day’, marking its first time being performed on his ongoing tour, as well as the first time he had performed the song with the E Street Band since 2016.

The 2024 leg of Springsteen’s current world tour restarted last week after the Boss had to postpone a hefty chunk of shows in 2023 due to health concerns.

The worries arose towards the end of last year, when the singer-songwriter needed to be treated for peptic ulcer disease, and was forced to delay all of his shows after playing in New Jersey on September 3.

No words!!!!! To be in such close proximity to greatness was more than I had ever expected.Bruce knelt down directly in front of me to sign a school excuse for the little girl behind me….

The Bear star Jeremy Allen White is reportedly being eyed to portray the singer in an upcoming film about the making of his 1982 album ‘Nebraska’.
