Bruce got a little confused at a concert in Michigan on Friday night:


The iconic rocker greeted his Palace of Auburn Hills audience Friday night with a hearty "Hello, Ohio!" -- a reference he repeated several times over the next half hour before catching his mistake, with what appeared to be a whispered assist from guitarist Steven Van Zandt.

"I'm all right," said the grinning Springsteen, who remained visibly self-conscious about the slip. "That is every front man's nightmare."

Why is it always Ohio? ("Hello, Cleveland!") The Detroit Free Press reports that the show totally rocked and nobody cared about the mix up.
