| Last updated
Bruce Springsteen fans have been left bamboozled over why the musician was seemingly booed during his Glastonbury performance. Catch a clip of the performance here:
Springsteen took to the stage on Saturday, 25 June, alongside the Somerset festival's oldest-ever headliner, Paul McCartney.
While McCartney fans leapt to the performer's defence online after he received complaints, Springsteen fans have been left confused over why the 72-year-old singer-songwriter appeared to be booed.

Glastonbury audience members flooded to Twitter to question why Springsteen seemingly triggered such a negative reaction.
"Did Bruce Springsteen get booed?" one user asked.
Another echoed: "McCartney has Bruce Springsteen join him in stage for a couple of tunes, and I’m sure lots of that idiot crowd BOOED him! How disrespectful is that? Typical of the woke ass hats that make up the majority of the Glasto crowd. They don’t deserve either."
"'WhY wAs BrUcE SpRiNgStEeN bEiNg BoOEd' tweets tonight have aged me terribly," a third joked.
One viewer even took to Reddit in their confusion.
They wrote: "I was watching Paul McCartney’s set last night (which was great.)and he had two special guests Dave Grohl and Bruce Springsteen who for some Reading got booed (Bruce not Dave) I’m sure I’m missing something here but why was he booed? Did he say something offensive or something or what?"

However, you can always count on Reddit and Twitter to provide all the answers to your much desired questions.
"It wasn't booing it was ‘Bruuuuuuuuce’," one Redditor explained.
Although, another remained unconvinced. "Bruh, I thought the same thing. I did a bit of research and I think they were chanting 'Bruuuuuuuuuuuuuce.' Still not totally sure though," they said.
A final was more resolute in their explanation. "Bruce. No f**ker boo'd the boss," they said.
They are saying Bruuuuuuuuuucceeeee!!! I used to think people booed him too until i was told otherwise.— Eibhlísh (@Eilis2021) June 25, 2022
Springsteen joined McCartney onstage to play 'Glory Days' and 'I Wanna Be Your Man'.
"Oh, man it's so good to be here. We were supposed to be doing this three years ago.
"But here we are. We've got some old songs for you, we've got some new songs and we've got some in-betweeners... and I got a feeling we're going to have a great time," McCartney told the crowds.
Springsteen joined McCartney for his final song, alongside rock legend Dave Grohl.
It marked Grohl's first public performance since Taylor Hawkins – the Foo Fighter's drummer – passed away.
The trio jammed to 'The End', marking the closing song of McCartney's whopping two-hour-and-50-minute set as the headline Saturday act.
