Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are paying tribute to the late James Gandolfini.  The New Jersey "Star-Ledger" reports that the group performed their landmark 1975 album "Born To Run" in its entirety during their show Thursday night in Coventry, England, and Springsteen dedicated the eight-song segment to "our good friend James Gandolfini." 

The E Street Band has strong ties to the late actor through guitarist Steven Van Zandt, who was a member of "The Sopranos" cast.  Gandolfini died suddenly on Wednesday while in Italy.  

The "Born To Run" presentation was part of 30-song, three-hour-and-ten-minute show from the group, who is currently on their 2013 European "Wrecking Ball" tour.  Bruce and the band will be in the Netherlands on Saturday.
