Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took to Twitter on Thursday to encourage American singer Bruce Springsteen to visit Israel after reports that the artist had expressed a desire to perform in the Jewish state.

“I really need to play there [Israel],” the superstar rocker reportedly told a fan from Jerusalem. To which the Prime Minister responded: “Hey Boss, I agree. We are waiting for you.”

The fan, Amy Kalman, had flown into New Jersey for a day to attend a book signing for the singer’s new autobiography, “Born to Run.” The mother-of-four joined a line of 2,000 people who came to purchase pre-signed copies of the book and pose for photos with the 67-year-old singer. During that brief moment, Kalman asked Springsteen if he would perform in Israel.

Speaking with The Times of Israel, Kalman said, “I’d been thinking on the plane about, how could I say to him, ‘Nu, play in Israel already.’ But I didn’t get to say any of that because he immediately said, ‘I really need to play there.’ And I said, ‘Yes, you really do!’”

Kalman added that when she told Springsteen that she had flown in just to see him, he said, “Well, that gets a hug.”

Springsteen recently completed a world tour, with dates across the US and Europe, centered on the 35th anniversary of the release of his album “The River.”

    There’s the story of Springsteen’s early crush on his Israeli violinist, Suki Lahav. Maybe he’s never gotten over her.
