A “Summer of Sorcery” means there's going to be some magic in the night.

The Boss, according to an attendee of the show, helped the Disciples of Soul perform the E Street Band's “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out,” the '80s anti-apartheid anthem “Sun City” and Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes' “I Don't Want to Go Home,” which was written and produced by Van Zandt.
"The change was made uptown when Little Steven joined the band!" sang Springsteen on "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out."
Both Springsteen and Van Zandt are members of the E Street Band and lifelong friends from the Jersey Shore.
“Summer of Sorcery,” released on Friday, May 3 from Wicked Cool/UMe, is the Disciples of Soul first album of new material since 1989’s “Revolution.” An East Coast record release show is set for Wednesday, May 8 at the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park.
Springsteen will release a new studio album called ‘Western Stars’ on June 14 from Columbia Records. A single, “Hello Sunshine,” was released last month. He's slated to appear with film director Martin Scorsese on Sunday, May 5 at the Raleigh Studios in Los Angeles to kick off the Netflix live Emmy Awards campaign event called the “FYSee Experience.”
Springsteen starred in the film version of “Springsteen on Broadway” on Netflix.
