It ain't easy being the Boss.
Check it out.
The curse of Friday the 13th struck Bruce Springsteen in a most unusual way: it made the 60-year-old rock legend forget where he was.
The Boss bellowed "Hello, Ohio!" to his fans at the Auburn Hills Palace in Michigan..
Springsteen referred to the neighboring state several times in the following 30 minutes until E Street Band guitarist Steve Van Zandt whispered in his ear..
A visibly embarrassed Springsteen grinned and said such a mistake was "every front man's nightmare.".
The Detroit Free Press says Springsteen rocked the forgiving audience for nearly three hours Friday night with new and old hits including a complete performance of his album "Born to Run.".

That's one of the occupational hazards of being a performer on the road. Best intentions aside, after a while, the hotels and the airports and even the venues all start to sound, smell and look alike.
And, fair being fair, he was in Michigan which is right next door. So, saying Ohio wasn't necessarily a senior moment.
It's not like he yelled out "hellllllo, Portland!!!"
And it's not like he pulled a Jessica Simpson.
Remember this oldie but goodie?
“Is this chicken, what I have, or is this fish? I know it's tuna, but it says 'Chicken by the Sea.'”
Bless her heart, she doesn't even know the difference between chicken and tuna, let way alone the fact that it's Chicken OF, and not BY, the Sea.
And she's half the Boss's age.
Obviously everybody had a good laugh over Bruce's little geographical miscalcuation.
But I think it's safe to let him keep driving a car and operating heavy machinery.
Cause I'm pretty sure he knows the difference between chicken and tuna.
