Bruce Springsteen will return to make his fourth appearance on NBC's Saturday Night Live next month. “The Boss,” joined by the E Street Band, will hit 30 Rock for the show's December 12th episode hosted by Timothée Chalamet, marking his first appearance on the show since December 19th, 2015. Prior to that, Springsteen had previously played SNL in 1992 and 2002.
During his recent appearance on CBS's The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Bruce Springsteen talked about making music with many of the same people for most of his life: “The E Street Band — Steve (Van Zandt) goes back to when I was 16, Garry (Tallent) — 18, y'know, these guys were there for a long, long time. So I always tell people, I says, 'Imagine this: People that you're going (to) high school (with) right now, when you're 70-years-old, those are the exact people you'll be working with — and will have worked with them for the past 50 years.' The only place that that happens is in rock n' roll.”
