WATCH: Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band Play Two Cuts from “The River” Box Set on SNL

Plus a bonus version of "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" with Paul McCartney.

Saturday Night Live seems intent on closing 2015 with a bang. Following last week’s pair of stirring performances from Chance the Rapper, this week the long-running late-night show brought in the heavy hitters: hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey and musical guest Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band.

The Boss played a pair of cuts from the recently released The Ties That Bind: The River Collection“Meet Me in the City” and The River opener “The Ties That Bind.” Bruce, Poehler, and Fey were also joined by Sir Paul McCartney for a bonus performance of “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” which is perhaps the only Christmas song that you could get away with listening to in mid July. You can see all three performances below.
