    Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are currently in the middle of a European Tour that brought them to AWD Arena in Hannover, Germany last night for The Boss’s first-ever show in that city. As he’s done at most shows this tour, Springsteen entered the crowd to collect song requests written on signs held by fans. Thanks to the signs, The Boss and his longtime band have been busting out deep cut originals and covers at an impressive rate on The Wrecking Ball Tour.

    At yesterday’s show, Bruce came back to the stage with a sign containing quite an unusual request/offer. Springsteen showed off a sign that said, “I’d give my right testicle to hear Drift Away.” Springsteen responded that he would play the Dobie Gray cover as long as he didn’t have to see the man’s left OR right testicle. He then warned that the band had only played the song a few times (four performances in total since 1984), and didn’t really know Drift Away but that he did want the man to go home with both testicles, so he’d give it a shot.
