Bruce Springsteen invited British folksters Mumford & Sons on stage to sing ‘Hungry Heart’ during his encore on Monday night, and quite possibly enjoyed it more than anyone in the audience. The Boss danced and jumped around like a teenager while singing the three-minute long hit from 1980. A fan captured the whole thing on video, which you can watch below.

Springsteen was headlining Monday’s fun at the Pinkpop Festival in the Netherlands. Mumford & Sons had performed earlier, but stuck around to watch the rock legend. According to multiple sources, Springsteen played a 23-song set that included hits as well as songs from his latest album ‘Wrecking Ball.’

About one minute into the song, someone appears from off-stage to toss various percussion instruments to the members of Mumford & Sons, who have an obvious appreciation for Springsteen. They hop around and clap their hands during the solos, and bow down to saxophone player Jake Clemons, the nephew of the late Clarence Clemons. The entire performance has a college basement party feel, which is a testament to the E Street Band’s comfort with each other and looseness.

The Wrecking Ball Tour continues through Europe through July, before returning to America in August.
