Bruce Springsteen read a fan's request during his Sunday night concert in Pitttsburgh that hurled an insult at Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Stepping up to the microphone at Consol Energy Center, Springsteen said: "Someone gave me a copy of the Constitution of the United States. It does say 'F--- Trump' on the front of it. And this was his request," he said.

Springsteen proceeded to play an acoustic version of "Long Walk Home," a track from his 2007 album, Magic.

This wasn't the first time Springsteen was handed a copy of the Constitution. A similar thing happed at the United Center in Chicago after The Boss went crowd-surfing, and a fan slipped one in his pocket.

Springsteen and the E Street Band began the evening honoring the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks with a quartet of songs from his 2002 album, The Rising.

Backed by a string section, Springsteen paid tribute to New York with "New York City Serenade" before segueing into "Into the Fire," a song about first responders running into the Twin Towers before they fell. He then performed the somber "You're Missing" for the first time since 2003.

He lightened the mood with the more upbeat "Lonesome Day" and "Mary's Place" before working in "Darkness on the Edge of Town" to complete the theme. He followed with two more NYC centric songs, "Does This Bus Stop at 82nd Street" and "It's Hard to Be a Saint in the City."

Springsteen later returned to The Rising album with "My City of Ruins" and the title track, but opted to let the songs do the talking, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Additionally, Springsteen united "Kitty's Back," "Incident on 57th Street" and "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)" from The Wild, The Innocent and the E Street Shuffle, which was released 43 years ago, on Sept. 11, 1973.

Springsteen was joined by Pittsburgh musician Joe Grushecky for the song "Light of Day."
