Bruce Springsteen performs in 2016.

Bruce and the boys are back in the swamps of Jersey, and they’re in no rush to get off the stage.

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will perform their second show at MetLife Stadium on Thursday. It comes after they performed a 35-song set for 3 hours and 52 minutes on Tuesday.

A Springsteen fan website, Backstreets.com, says that was Springsteen’s longest U.S. show ever.

The Boss’ longest show was 4 hours and 6 minutes in Helsinki, Finland, in 2012.

The New Jersey shows mark a return to the U.S. after Springsteen and the band spent three months performing in Europe on their River Tour 2016, which kicked off in January.

They are performing in seven U.S. cities, including East Rutherford, New Jersey, before ending the tour on Sept. 14.
