Aside from contributing some backup vocals, she helped Springsteen and the E Street Band add some musical energy by rocking out on the tambourine. The concert took place at Barcelona’s Lluis Companys Olympic Stadium and Michelle appeared to be having a blast as she danced and sang in flared cargo trousers and a black blazer under the “Western (European) Stars”. At one point, she got right up next to Bruce and grooved with him as he played a guitar solo.
The concert came one night after Michelle, Kate, 69, Bruce’s wife Patti Scialfa69, former President Barack Obama61, and Steven Spielberg, 76, dined at the Amar restaurant in the Palace Hotel, per The Guardian. After the dinner, a staff member named Paul Perello shared a photo (seen below) of the famous friends posing with him and the rest of the restaurant staff. He captioned his Instagram photo, “the pleasure this job brings you!”
“The security people told us to please not ask them for photos, but just before leaving, Obama entered the kitchen and told us that this had been one of their best meals and if they could take a photo with the whole team,” Amar chef Rafael Zafra told The Guardian. He also joked that “the one who behaved best was the one who had to work today,” referring to Bruce.
The “Dancing In The Dark” hitmaker and the Obamas have been friends for more than 15 years. Bruce even campaigned for Barack in 2008 and then performed at his 2009 Inaugural Address. Meanwhile, Barack awarded Steven the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2015 while he was still in the White House. “His stories have shaped America’s story and his values have shaped our world,” he said at the time.
Bruce will tour through Europe until August and then return home to the United States to perform several shows. His tour will wrap up in December in San Francisco, Calif.
