Seated on the pavement, his back against a lamp post the camera-toting visitor in dark shades looked like any other tourist taking the load off his feet during a little Paris sightseeing. Certainly none of the other snappers seemed aware they were gathering holiday memories alongside American music icon Bruce Springsteen.

The Boss, as he is known to his legions of fans, was taking in the sights of the French capital during his current tour to promote new album Devils & Dust. Playing without his usual sidekicks, the E Street Band, the singer has gone solo for this series of gigs, accompanying himself on guitar and various other instruments.

The tour, which kicked off in Detroit in April, winds up in Stockholm on June 25.
