Bruce Springsteen, the toast of Broadway, joined the Patti Smith Group on Monday night at the Beacon Theatre to perform "Because the Night." The event was a screening of the new documentary "Horses: Patti Smith and Her Band." Patti played a short set following the film and was then joined by Bruce, and then by Michael Stipe of R.E.M. for "People Have the Power."
Patti told the crowd: "This song always makes me think of three men: Fred 'Sonic' Smith, who inspired it; Jimmy Iovine, who produced it; and Bruce Springsteen, who wrote it." Bruce played a sunburst Telecaster and joined Smith for the second verse and chorus.
