Nobody messes with The Boss! Except for the Leeds City Council, who issued Bruce Springsteen’s crew parking tickets right before a show in Leeds on Wednesday night.

A spokesperson for the Leeds Council issued a statement apologizing: "It was somebody being a little bit stupid and zealous. It is an awareness thing. The lorries are supposed to park offsite and then be called into the arena."

Springsteen’s performance was a big deal, after all. He was the very first artist ever to perform at the brand new Leeds Arena.
