Bruce Springsteen was honored as the Grammy’s 2013 MusiCares Person of the Year in Los Angeles last night, and the festivities included an all-star tribute concert featuring Neil Young, Eddie Vedder, Patti Smith, Mumford and Sons, Alabama Shakes, and The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart, among others

As Hidden Track points out, a pair of clips from the concert have since surfaced online, including footage of Neil Young & Crazy Horse covering “Born in the U.S.A.” There’s also a montage from the UK Telegraph, which features short clips of Mumford and Sons covering “I’m On Fire” and Elton John covering “Streets of Philadelphia”. Watch both videos below.

The setlist also included covers of “Adam Raised a Cain” by Alabama Shakes”, “American Skin (41 Shots)” by Tom Morello and Jackson Browne, “The Ghost of Tom Joad” by Morello and Jim James, and “Dancing in the Dark” by John Legend. For the finale, Springsteen and members of the E Street Band played a short set which included “Thunder Road”, “Born to Run”, and “Glory Days” featuring all of the concert’s performers.

In years past, the Grammys have released the MusiCares Person of the Year tribute concerts on DVD, so stay tuned.
