Um, you've got the wrong state, Boss.
Legendary rocker Bruce Springsteen made an onstage geography goof Friday when he bellowed "Hello, Ohio!" to adoring fans at the Auburn Hills Palace -- in Michigan.
The "Born in the USA" crooner referred to the neighboring state several times before trusty E Street Band guitarist Steven Van Zandt whispered their actual location into his ear.

The number of concerts these people give (performers in general), it’s a wonder they don’t make mistakes like these more often.
I hardly go anywhere anymore, and I still can’t figure out where I am half the time.
Now I am beginning to have doubts as to whether the “Boss” was actually “Born in the USA”.
Not a smart mistake with the Ohio-Michigan game coming up.
Bruce Springsteen is still alive?
Someone should tell him his career died around 1989.
Keep smokin' that peyote.
Needs to use an all purpose generic greeting like Hello Earthlings!!!
Stupid dumbass. Springsteen peaked in 1975. He’s a washed up has-been.
“Someone should tell him his career died around 1989.”
I got ‘79.
Not a big fan of the whole faux “Born in the USA” working man schtick.....
LOL. You know what trips me up? Days of the week — except Sunday, of course. Other than that, I have a 1 in 6 chance of guessing right.
Video of one of the times he did it...
First time he did it was in the greeting “Good evening Ohio!.....Detroit...aghhhhhh...oh my god”
He was just speaking Japanese.
Never liked Springstreen!
Years ago when I worked for a well known national touring band I sometimes woke up in my hotel room bed wondering where the heck I was. After about 37 days on the road every town was Cleveland.
I’ve met the guy 3 or 4 times. He ain’t the brightest bulb in the string..........
It makes sense. Bands generally see the hotel and the stage. After so long it’s hard to remember one town from the next without looking at your schedule.
And he campaigned for kerry (who was in vietnam).
Springsteen...washed up has been..
His income tax preparers will beg to differ.
“He is just another liberal narcissistic Prick!”
Don’t hold back, tell us how you really feel. LOL
That will turn off a few Wolverines fans fer sure!
I wonder if he’s played concerts in all 57 states .
That is nothing that POS Sting said Obama was a gift from God.
I hope he doesn’t make this same mistake in all 57 states..! You know?
Bruce, put down the crack pipe and slowly back away from the stage.

Bruce Springsteen's 2009 tour has played to sold out arenas and has grossed millions of dollars. Bruce Springsteen's 2008 tour played to sold out arenas and grossed millions of dollars. Bruce Springsteen's 2007 tour played to sold out arenas and grossed millions of dollars. Bruce Springsteen's 2006 tour... Bruce Springsteen's 2005 tour...
He took 2004 off.
Bruce Springsteen's 2003 tour played to sold out arenas and grossed millions of dollars. Bruce Springsteen's 2002 tour played to sold out arenas and grossed millions of dollars.
Yeah, someone needs to tell him his career is dead.
Thanks, I love to share.....
Saw him at MSG last week. The old man still gives a very lively show.
We’re so glad that you’re a fan and that you’re glad he’s still got hanger-ons, like you. To the great majority of folks who followed him in the 1980s and earlier, his career is dead. We’ll agree to disagree, won’t we? Enjoy your next Boss concert.
Glory days have passed him by.

I think it was Southwest Airlines - “Want to get away?”
I bet he did, too. :)
“Springboard”...Hah! or would that be “Springbored”?
Such popularity is also an indication that more people than ever have bad taste. Look at Obama. Now, there’s a good example of what I’m talking about...
