Council bosses in Leeds, England have apologized after Bruce Springsteen’s tour trucks were given parking tickets.

The Boss headed to the city to play for thousands of fans at Leeds Arena on Wednesday night, but drivers of his stage equipment landed in hot water with traffic wardens, who issued fines for parking their vehicles on a side street near the venue.

Council leader Keith Wakefield has now apologized for the move and has revoked the tickets.

He says, “It was somebody being a little bit stupid and zealous. It is an awareness thing. The lorries are supposed to park off-site and then be called into the arena.”
