EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — It was another record-breaking night for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band with a few surprises thrown in at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium.

Thursday night’s show lasted nearly four hours, breaking the previous record for the group’s longest U.S. show of 3 hours and 52 minutes that was set at MetLife on Tuesday, according to the Springsteen fan website, Backstreets.com.

The Boss’ longest show was 4 hours and 6 minutes in Helsinki, Finland in 2012.

Springsteen also acknowledged Thursday was the 41st anniversary of his “Born to Run” album.

The 33-song concert ended with a marriage proposal between a couple who came on stage.

There is one more MetLife concert scheduled for next Tuesday.

The New Jersey shows mark a return to the U.S. after Springsteen and the band spent three months performing in Europe on their River Tour 2016, which kicked off in January.

The tour ends in Foxborough, Massachusetts on Sept. 14.
