Bruce Springsteen has won hearts after he hilariously signed a note for a young fan to say they were "skipping school".

The sweet moment came as The Boss was performing in San Francisco on Sunday when he noticed a funny sign in the crowd being held up by a young girl.

It read: “Skipping school, sign my note?”

Ever the rockstar, Bruce was all too keen to oblige to help the youngster achieve that dream.

It's not the first time The Boss has done this either.

A young boy attended a book signing of his back in 2016, and had him sign a note of absence.

It has also been revealed that Bruce will be the first international artist to be inducted as a fellow of Britain’s Ivors Academy.

In a history-making move, he will follow in the footsteps of the likes of Sir Paul McCartney and Kate Bush.

Springsteen said: “In addition to recognising my songwriting, the award stands as a tribute to the fans and friends who have supported me and my work for the last 50 years.

“This entire country has made me feel welcome every step of the way, and for this, I will always remain deeply appreciative.”

A limited-edition vinyl of The Best of Bruce Springsteen in a Jersey Devil Red shade is being released to celebrate.

Fans are thrilled to have Bruce back on the road and performing again, after his tour dates were previously cancelled and postponed.

Bruce has also been overjoyed to be touring again, saying he had missed it while away.

The star also has a new best of album on the way for fans to enjoy, released April 19.
