Legendary American songwriter Bruce Springsteen has been joined by The Killers' Brandon Flowers onstage in the Netherlands.

Bruce Springsteen is currently touring the world after the success of his recent album 'Working On A Dream'. Famously inspired by his experiences on the campaign trail with Barack Obama, the album is Springsteen at his fist-pumping euphoric best.

Famed for his lengthy shows, Springsteen has in the past been reluctant to play festivals. However recently The Boss seems to have had a change of heart, performing a headline slot at California's Coachella event.

Over the summer Bruce Springsteen is set to play a number of British shows, including performances at Scotland's Hampden Park and Wembley Stadium in London. However, also notable is the songwriter's first ever festival performances on British soil.

Springsteen is due to headline Hard Rock Calling, as well as historic Somerset event Glastonbury. In order to book the singer organiser Emily Eavis was forced to present his management with a dossier on the festival, which Springsteen read and immediately agreed to.

The Boss was performing live at Pinkpop festival in the Netherlands on Saturday (May 30th). Playing live with The E Street band, the singer joined by Brandon Flowers to belt out on of his classics.

Taken from 1975's 'Born To Run' the track 'Thunder Road' is a favourite with fans and, it seems, The Killers frontman. Brandon Flowers blasted out the song, shortly after performing his own set.

Of course, Brandon Flowers must be used to performing with his heroes now. The singer recently presented Pet Shop Boys with their 'Outstanding Contribution To Music' trophy at the Brit Awards, before joining the synth pop legends during the ceremony's finale.

Springsteen was on good form at Pinkpop, playing a number of songs live for the first time. Recent album highlights such as 'From Small Things (Big Things One Day Come)' were played after a fan requested the song using a cardboard sign.

According to Bruce Springsteen fan site Backstreets both 'Trapped' and 'I'm On Fire' were performed after similar requests.

The singer finished with a rendition of 'Glory Days' followed by his classic track 'Dancing In The Dark' - which, as we all know, featured future Friends star Courtney Cox in the video.

Bruce Springsteen is due to play Glastonbury on June 27th.
