It was one of those once-in-a-lifetime moments for the Bradley boys of Ottawa, getting to share the stage at Scotiabank Place with the Boss himself.

Bruce Springsteen and his legendary E Street band played Canada’s capital Friday night, keeping the capacity crowd of 19-thousand screaming fans on their feet for over three hours.

But for three of those fans, Scott Bradley and his two sons — eight-year-old Peter and seven-year-old Stuart — it would become an almost transcendent experience to top all others.

During his shows Springsteen always chooses a youngster from the audience to join him on stage to warble out a rendition of “Waiting on a Sunny Day.”

And on Friday night, the honour was bestowed upon brothers Peter and Stuart.

For dad, a life-long Springsteen disciple who even plays a Fender Telecaster guitar similar to the one the Boss slings, it just couldn’t get any better.

And Scott ended up with another treasure — Springsteen tossed him his harmonica.
