Bruce Springsteen brought down the house at the 72nd Annual Tony Awards on Sunday. 

The Boss performed his hit, "My Hometown," from this one-man show on Broadway. The performance was introduced by his pal Robert De Niro, who took his quick time on air say "f—k Trump" and talk about how hard it is to get tickets to Springsteen's massively popular show. 

"Do you have any idea how hard it is to get tickets for Bruce Springsteen's show on Broadway?" DeNiro joked to the crowd.

Springsteen then performed his 1985 classic with spoken word moments where he reflected on his time growing up in New Jersey "surrounded by God and all my relatives" near St. Rose's Cemetery, where people did the best they could to "hold off the demons, outside and inside, that sought to destroy them."

Springsteen's show "Springsteen on Broadway" has received massive acclaim and he snagged an honorary Tony Award from Billy Joel for his achievements on the Great White Way.
