Bruce Springsteen inviting a youngster or random crowd member up on stage mid-gig is hardly a new development in his lengthy career, but he made one Aussie teen's dream come true last night in Brisbane.

With The Boss currently on tour Down Under, he spotted teenager Nathan Testa holding a sign saying that he could play 'Growing Up' on guitar.

Sure enough, he hauled him up and invited him to play the track from 1973's 'Greetings from Asbury Park' album.

He also imparted a little life advice after they played the song, saying "Before we continue, a lesson. When I was your age, I got my first guitar. I brought it home. I realised, it wasn't about how well you played it, but how good you looked doing it. So I got in front of the mirror and I tried some different poses."
