Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band paid tribute to actor James Gandolfini Thursday to an audience at Ricoh Arena, in Coventry, England by performing the entire Born To Run album.

The Sopranos actor passed away Wednesday of a heart attack while vacationing in Italy.

E Street Band member Steven Van Zandt was a member of the show’s cast and knew Gandolfini well. On Wednesday, he took to Twitter, saying, “I have lost a brother and a best friend. The world has lost one of the greatest actors of all time.”

Gandolfini, like Springsteen, was a New Jersey native.  He was 51.
