Rocker Bruce Springsteen left fans baffled during a show on Saturday night (17May14) by continually calling out the name of the wrong U.S. state.

The Boss was playing a show in Uncasville, Connecticut and thrilled revellers with more than three hours of hits, but he irked some concertgoers by continually shouting out to "Massachusetts", much to the crowd's confusion.

After calling out the wrong state name a number of times, the audience corrected him by shouting back, "No!", according to the New York Daily News.

Springsteen then realised his error and gave a shout-out to the Connecticut Food Bank volunteers who were collecting donations at the gig.
