(Launch.com) -- Bono of U2, the Eurythmics' Dave Stewart, and Dion joined Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band onstage in Miami Saturday (November 23) at American Airlines Arena.
Bono and guitarist Stewart came out halfway through the show to sing on "Because The Night," the Springsteen song that became a Billboard top 10 hit in 1978 for Patti Smith. U2 also recorded a cover of the song as a B-side.
Later in the concert, '60s pop vocalist Dion, best known for hits such as "The Wanderer," was brought out to sing the ballad, "If I Should Fall Behind," with Springsteen on harmony.
Both numbers were also tour debuts, as were "Out In The Street" and "So Young And In Love," the latter a mid-1970s outtake song from the 1998 boxed set, Tracks.
Sunday night's (November 24) show in Tampa, Florida featured a final encore of "Twist And Shout," which the E Street Band hasn't performed since 1988.
Springsteen and company take a Thanksgiving holiday break, then the tour in support of The Rising resumes on December 2 in Atlanta at Philips Arena.
In additional tour news, the group plays Down Under next year, with Australian stadium shows scheduled for March 20 in Melbourne, March 22 in Sydney, and March 25 in Brisbane, plus the band's first-ever appearance in New Zealand, set for March 28 in Auckland.
