No one makes an entrance quite like The Boss.

Bruce Springsteen crashed the Blinded by the Light premiere on Wednesday (Aug. 7) night at the Paramount Theater in Asbury Park. The Boss brought some extra fire-power to the red carpet, where he was flanked with his wife, Patti Scialfa and the film’s director Gurinder Chanda and her family.
It was a bit of a shock for the star of the film though, “No one told me that was going to happen,” said star Viveik Kalra commented ahead of the screening, the Asbury Park Press reports. Springsteen reportedly posed for photos, but didn’t take questions. He let his music do all the talking in the theater, where he jammed on a handful of classics including “Sherry Darling.” Blinded by the Light, which tells the story of a British-Pakistani teenager in Thatcher’s England who falls in love with Springsteen’s music, is in theaters on Friday, Aug. 16.
