Rock legend Bruce Springsteen created a once-in-a-lifetime experience for two local boys when he invited them on stage during his Ottawa concert Friday night.

The Boss himself hauled Stuart Bradley, 7, and his brother Peter, 8, on stage to join him in performing Waitin' On A Sunny Day before 19,000 fans at Scotiabank Place.

Their dad Scott, a long-time Springsteen fan, brought a video camera with him, but handed it to a stranger standing next to him to record the event because he just wanted to watch it all unfold for himself.

The video has since been posted on YouTube.
