Bruce Springsteen is all for a fan playing hooky.

During his San Francisco concert at the Chase Center on Sunday, March 31, "The Boss," 74, made an audience member's day by signing an absentee note for them.

According to fan-posted video and photos from the event, a young fan caught Springsteen's attention with a sign that read "Skipping school. Sign my note?"

The "Born to Run" artist happily obliged and kneeled down on the stage to sign the unnamed fan's note.

After postponing several of his 2023 tour dates due to peptic ulcer disease, Springsteen returned to the stage late last month.

According to the Associated Press, the rock icon was in good spirits at the Footprint Center in Phoenix as he performed alongside the E Street Band, sans wife wife Patti Scialfa.

In a pair of dark jeans and a red flannel shirt, Springsteen was greeted by a cheering crowd yelling “Bruuuuce!” ahead of his performance, per the publication.

His 29-song set included hits like "Born to Run" and a string of soul covers like “Nightshift” by the Commodores, “Because The Night” by Patti Smith Group, and “Twist and Shout” by The Top Notes/The Isley Brothers/The Beatles.

During the gig, Springsteen also addressed his illness before starting his final track "I’ll See You In My Dream," per the AP.

"Phoenix, first I want to apologize if there was any discomfort because we had to move the show last time. . . . I hope we didn’t inconvenience you too much," he told fans, according to the outlet.

In May 2022, Springsteen announced that he'd be heading out on tour in February 2023 for his and the band's first international run since 2017, and their first US tour dates since 2016.

However, his road back to the stage didn't go as smoothly as expected.

Just a month after the tour kicked off, Springsteen postponed three shows in a week "due to illness," according to a statement shared on the musician's Twitter page.

By August, the singer/songwriter had to postpone two of his Philadelphia shows due to having “taken ill."

In early September — through a statement shared on the singer's social media accounts — it was revealed that he was "being treated for symptoms of peptic ulcer disease."

Under the "decision of his medical advisors," the remainder of Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band's September shows were postponed.
