He's goin' down, down, down, down 🎶, but a nasty fall didn't stop rock legend Bruce Springsteen.
... because he's Tougher Than the Rest...
The "Born in the U.S.A." singer took a hard tumble during a recent concert in Amsterdam while ascending the steps, guitar and all, and stayed on his back for a beat as the audience voiced their worry through a collective gasp.
As his bandmates came to his rescue, the 73-year-old musician handed off his guitar and hopped up with a little assistance.
He quipped to the audience:
You can watch the incident below.

Despite This Hard Land, Springsteen carried on and performed the rest of the concert like a Boss.
We're glad he's okay.
