He's 5'-7". I'm 5'-8" and I've met him - was surprised that he wasn't quite as tall as me - because as others say, he really is larger than life! Really nice guy too.

5' 7.5" walking by me last night.

He's 5-9, but usually wears 2" heels that make him taller. But we all know he's larger than life!

Why does he look 5'8 in the streets of philadelphia video? Looks more like 5'10 with the motorcycle boots on.

Re. The Boss: I've read elsewhere that his estimated height is 5'9", and that is what I would state. Bruce does have a large head, but also a very lean muscular body. And in all the footage I've seen him in, he wears boots that look like 1.5 inch Cuban heels.

Not much height loss but possibly closer to a flat 5'9" now.

@Brad I own the world then since being 6'7" since 8th grad and a senior in high school now I'm 6'9", makes sense since by college I'll own the universe. I do tend to have a lot of small guys want to fight me for some reason. I guess Brad would be one of them. hahahahahah loser Brad..

@Brad, lol ive never seen someone say they 'owned' someone because they were taller then the other person. Like yea "DUDE I OWNED YOU AT HAVING BETTER GENES THEN YOU." like its some type of competition to be tall based on skill. Silliest thing ive read all day.

Bruce can't be over 5'9
5'8.5 ar best
said on 28/Sep/14
@bass Actually, be seing this video, Axl Looke slightly taller sometimes. I think they're both the same height or Bruce is 1,75m or 1,76 tops. Never taller than that.
And next to Paul McCartney, who is 1,78m, Bruce is shorter too.
bass said on 22/Sep/14
He did look about an inch and a half taller than Axl Rose when they both performed Come Together in 1994

I was in Rock In Rio Brazil in 2013 and he passed right next to me during the concert. I'm 5'8 and he was my height of just a little bit taller, like 1,75m or 1,77m tops!
Rougeman said on 3/May/14
I,m 5,9, At Tampa show Thursday, Bruce strolled to the bar while playing pay me my money down and had a drink. I was next to him, no more than 5.7. Anyway what does it matter.

I used to lift weights at the Vanderbilt YMCA in the middle 1980's and, now and again, so did Bruce. Gang showers. No shoes. Five foot seven or so. Not above that in this lifetime. There's a reason he sticks to his Herman Munster engineer boots, but so what, what a musician!
bossboss said on 23/Apr/14
5'9" at least. no question.
bossboss said on 23/Apr/14
he is all of 5'9 or 5'9.5 . i met him in person and I am 5'8 and he was easily taller than I am and he was not wearing big boots with heels. no chance is he shorter than 5'9
Bemused said on 12/Feb/14
Looking down the page I think he must be a leprechaun, he seems to be shrinking or growing with every comment.
Balboa said on 23/Jan/14
5'9" right on for bruce/ fallon 5'11". Look at bruce towering over deNiro who's supposedly 5'9"
Balboa said on 23/Jan/14
5'9" right on for bruce/ fallon 5'11"
Brad said on 15/Jan/14
He's never even seen 5' 9" in his life. Jimmy Fallon owned him this week by a few and you can bet Bruce was in standard cycle boots. He's not even 5' 8" in '14.
Charlie said on 28/Dec/13
Not even near to 5'9. In some picture he is as tall as Dylan, so 5'7.
said on 16/Dec/13
Sorry, Bobby, that's a horrible height comparison shot for Springsteen...there's much better ones on the net with Obama and Springsteen where Springsteen looks around 3 or 4 inches shorter, so still solidly in 5'9"+ range.
said on 13/Dec/13
Look at this Click Here
and tell me that he's over 5'8.
I'm gonna go with 5'7, maybe 5'10 in those big boots he's clearly wearing.
Fee said on 21/Jul/13
I have 'Living Proof, pardon the pun and pleasure of being picked to dance with Bruce on stage in Ireland - with my trainers on I stood at 5'9.5 - I was looking straight into his eyes!!
tex said on 15/Apr/13
Bruce at his height (a pun) was 5'9". Saw him recently and he is no more than 5'8" now.
Anonymous said on 11/Mar/13
Bruce is 5'10 and at least 6' with motor cycle boots. He stands at same height as other musicaians and actors of similar height such as Tom Hanks, Jimmy Fallan, Bob Seger, Neil Young, John Forgerty, Sting, Mick Jagger, and Jackson Brown. My cousin is 5'11" and met him up close back in 2008. He said they were the same height
War Pony said on 13/Dec/12
Just saw Bruce and Jon Bon Jovi on stage at the Hurricane Sandy Charity Concert. Jon was definately taller. Then I find Jon listed as 5'9" and Bruce at 5'10". No way!
Brad said on 20/Nov/12
Shook his hand last night. 5' 7.5" tops.
Brad said on 3/Nov/12
Weak 5' 8", if that recently.
letgodhandleit said on 28/Oct/12
I met Bruce in 2008, and stood -arm-in-arm with him after the concert in Charleston, SC. I'm 5'4". He was barely taller than me, 5'7" at the most.

Reaper Fallon is not 5 foot 8 hes about 5ft 6.5 to 5 ft 7. could even be lower.
Tom Cruisse said on 29/Sep/12
If his draft card says 5'8 then you know he must be 5'6-5'7 everyone cheats an inch on their height. I do!!
Big fella said on 11/Sep/12
Met bruce at Grammys back stage little hand and am sure he isn't 5 7 without boots .. But was awfully nice
Brad said on 10/Sep/12
His draft card is correct. He wears huge heeled cycle boots to fool you people.
Joe said on 19/Aug/12
I just saw the Bruce Springsteen exhibit at the Constitution center in Philadelphia. They had his draft card on display from when Bruce was 19, ans he was listed as 5'8 and 130 pounds.
Reaper said on 16/Aug/12
TO Joseph: Bruce never admitted to being "5"9.5". To measure to the half inch is ridiculous to begin with. NO ONE can measure just by EYE sight to a half inch. Thats just nonsense at the best and sad to say the least to even try.
Reaper said on 16/Aug/12
TO Joseph the delusional. He passes for an EASY 5-10" rating at any concert show. Like I said you never see the man barefoot or most no one for that matter ss far as a celebrity goes. Look at Brian Fallon whos 5-8" BRUCE TOWERS over him in every picture. Take a hike. Bruce even towers over De Niro at the Kennedy center awards. Bruce makes De niro look like a midget. Hes a LEGET 5-10"
Old said on 16/Aug/12
Dancing in the Dark video,Courtney Cox[5'5"] Bruce would be?Who cares. If he is playing and you are dancin'and remembering...
Lee said on 25/Jul/12
He looks 5'8", maybe 5'9" at the very most. Not a tall guy, but well-proportioned.
JR said on 12/Feb/12
If you added height and girth for his musical genius and poetry, he would surely qualify as a Na-Vi (Avatar) by height but with the built of Andre the Giant. - About 12' 6 " and roughly 750 lbs.
Anders said on 21/Jan/12
Hes atleast 5.95ft without boots, 181cm. And 6.0ft with boots.
Joseph said on 15/Dec/11
Good God, Mike, get some therapy. Are you his Mom or something? Springsteen admits, Himself, to being 5' 9.5".
Keith said on 8/Nov/11
he is about 5 ft 7 inches.People that say he is 5 ft 10 are dreaming.
rafa said on 19/Jun/11
I read Clarence Clemons died... RIP
Bruce said on 14/Jun/11
I AM Bruce Springsteen and I can tell you all that I am 6' tall without shoes.
Steve said on 23/May/11
I think 5'9.5 is right even though he never looked much shorter than the big man who is over 6'
tom said on 28/Apr/11
met him 2 yrs ago. he is 5'95" for sure without boots. with boots he is 6 ft. no question.
tom said on 28/Apr/11
met him two years ago. no question he is at least 5'9" without boots. with his boots he is 6 ft, guaranteed. i still have the pic we took and i can see by knowing my own height that he is 6 ft with his boots on. i don't care what anyone says, 5.95 is legit
Eltaco said on 5/Apr/11
1991 I was the lead fabrication welder for his concert tour that year. I met with him in person to discuss changes he would like made to the stage. I am 5' 11" and I was able to see over his head. He was wearing tennis shoes.
Bob said on 13/Mar/11
Met Bruce dozens of times 5'9" ish, the Big Man is a legit 6'4" I'm 6'2" & he dwarfs me.
Mike said on 4/Mar/11
Bruce is 5'10" all you other people who say he 5'6 or 5'7 are idiots. GET OVER IT THE MAN IS 5'10" I met him in person and shook his hand! I stand at 5'11 legit. BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN IS 5'10" tall!!!! Takes his boots off and is FLAT FOOTED maybe hes 5'9" BUT WHO THE HELL SEES HIM WHEN HES FLAT FOOTED OTHER THEN HIS WIFE!!! Hes 5'10" end the BS please. Who cares how tall he is that is the way God made him.
NJ said on 11/Feb/11
To the guy who noted that Bruce wears 32" levis... Yes, but he rolls the cuff up about 5 inches. I'm 5'8" and I've met him in person a few times and he's 5'7" at most. Very nice man...
yup said on 25/Dec/10
wada heck ?? thers even claims as low as 5'6 ?? i tot hes a big guy like 5'10 ??
R said on 4/Dec/10
no way is he 5'9.5" I'm 5'10 and he worked out in the same health club. 5'8" maybe. Give him some height for good tunes.
glenn said on 5/Sep/07
no way.i saw him again in the flesh tonight and talked to him.he still appeared the 5-10 i always saw him at.
said on 4/Sep/07
Always looked 5'8 to me. Here with Bono, who is around 5'6 (and wears huge shoes).
Scott said on 12/Jul/07
I stood next to Bruce at a concert on a landing to a stairway while he was singing and he is my same size with boots 5'7.75"
Franco said on 6/Jul/07
lets not joke John lol
Bruce is 175cm with lowest being 174cm, i do not exclude in the past him being 177cm not now.
john said on 25/Jun/07
I stood next to him after we got out of a pool in Hawaii and into an elevator. He is about 5'7", three inches shorter than my wife who is 5'10"
Franco said on 2/Apr/07
bruce springstring is 5'9
glenn said on 25/Feb/07
im wearing the flatest reeboks ever here.no was is he 5-8.he is 5-9ish.i might be 5-7 here though.i was young here.
Edwin said on 25/Feb/07
I'd put my money on 5-8. I think 5-9.5 is pushing things.
Fred said on 13/Feb/07
I met him last May - I'm 5' 10" barefoot - he was wearing flat shoes and is pretty much the same height as me.
hb45 said on 17/Jan/07
I agree with Glenn. Bruce looks 5-11 in boots on this photo, there's no doubt. And you Glenn, what kind of shoes did you wear on this pic? Is anybody knows if Bruce is a lift wearer???
Glenn said on 3/Dec/06
He is 5-11 in boots.
frankye said on 2/Dec/06
i've met him 10 years ago and i stood next to him.i'm 5.9 and he was my height wearing cowboys boots
said on 17/Nov/06
Springsteen, Jackson Brown 5'11" and Roy Orbison 5'10"
together on stage..."Pretty Woman"...
Never to be repeated...
Brad said on 7/Aug/06
5' 9" wears big heel boots, just loves cycle boots. His '60 Corvette was a mother in '78! Guy knows his cars.
Glenn said on 18/Jul/06
What does that mean Jack.I saw him 3 weeks ago.he is still 5-9.
Jack said on 17/Jul/06
I dont see the arm trick happening...
Beverly said on 30/May/06
No way is he 5'9." He's MAYBE 5'8, but that's a stretch. He is taller than Jon Bon Jovi though :)
steve said on 19/May/06
Met Bruce years ago. Believe me, he isn't 5'9.5". He isn't 5'8.5" He MIGHT be 5'8. Unless, of course, he's gotten taller since he was 26 years old.
Glenn said on 4/Mar/06
EJ that wasnt the main point with this photo.he is wearing cowboy boots.he is 5-9.plus boots.6 feet.its a no brainer.what is hard to understand.when I find my other pic you will see he is 5-9.you people lay down the law too much with a pic.
sf said on 3/Mar/06
EJ - I'm sure LOTS of celebrities know how to makes themselve look taller, especially in photos. They don't have to know about this website, to try to makes themselves look as tall as they can in every photo! Look at that shot of Springsteen - he's doing everything he can to look taller!
Glenn said on 15/Feb/06
your judging me by one pic.which was wrong at first.if you looked at the photos you would see I look 5-8 to 5-10.not 5-5,to 5-6.
pawn said on 13/Feb/06
first, i've to tell u that i 'm really struggling to understand what u r trying to "comunicate".. second...i have met him for real..since i don't have a pic with him doesn't mean i'm not telling the truth (see..i dont walk aroud with a camera in my pocket every day of my life like u do)
Glenn said on 11/Feb/06
your the expert pawn.you met everyone.he is 5-9,5-10.with boots makes 6 feet.duh.evryone else Im sure agrees.in your mind and world its different.plus look at how he has the old arm around trick which Editor Rob knows of.in other words Im not standing straight.I have another photo with him where he looks 5-9.again,a person who knows everything.
Glenn said on 23/Jan/06
EJ- remember he has cowboy boots on.so it is possible he is 5-9 ish.5-10 tops.
pawn said on 23/Jan/06
I'm sorry Glenn but i met him in person and i can swear he was my height ,he had boots on (i'm 5.8 barefoot)........ if you are 5.8 in that picture you were probably sitting down
Danimal said on 22/Jan/06
Rob, he's taller than 5'9 1/2". Time to boost up the height.
CelebHeights Editor said on 21/Jan/06
The boss (cowboy boots) and Glenn who had said he always appears 5ft 10.
Glenn said on 27/Nov/05
I met him many times and he is 5'10''.unless he is a lift guy.
Viper652 said on 9/Oct/05
Its well known that Bruce is 5-7
said on 17/Aug/05
From this website
, "Ok..so I'm 6ft 4ins but that aside Springsteen is a very small guy...can't be more than about 5ft 3ins tall....but when you see these people on TV and in films you can't accurately judge their height, so when you get a chance to meet them it's normally a shock (for me) that, although I expect to be taller than them, they are invariably considerably shorter than I expect them to be...However I was surprise when I passed Boy George at a gig once..he was huge! Definately 6ft plus...it was weird seeing such a huge, heavily built guy in all this make up and stuff..."
(Maybe this guy missed boy george's heels?)
JUSTMATT said on 4/May/05
Yeah Rob I think that we are all agree that The Boss is max 5.9 (as written in the drivers license) so if you want to change his height I think you'll do a good thing! :-D
franky said on 4/May/05
I met the boss once back in 1996 outside a theater in milan italy, and i had the opportunity to embrace him he was more than less my height which is 5-8.5 plus he had boots on..no way he is 5-10 (my driver's licence says i'm 5-9 as well...)
Mr. R said on 3/May/05
During his Born to Run Days, he was always described as scrawny and 5-9. When he came back with Born in the USA, he had bulked up, and apparently grown to 5-10. Of course the huge boots that he wore had nothing to do with that! He is always photographed wearing either huge diesel boots or cowboy boots now, so my guess is that he was 5-9, and maybe has lost a little, putting him over 5-10 with boots on!
Palladium said on 3/May/05
He always looked to me as a 5'9" guy comparing him to Tom Hanks but he can be this, is possibly.
Lmeister said on 3/May/05
A Finnish rock journalist Jyrki Hämäläinen(around 6'4'') ones said in tv that Bruce is barely 5'7''. I don't think he is that short, but if he'd be 5'10'' I think the journalist wouldn't have called him short. Actually picture of Bruces drivers license was in some mag. and at least it said 5'9''...
