Acoustic medley marathon gig.
But where Springsteen made his name performing sets lasting way past the normal two hours in the world's stadiums and arenas, Jon can be seen weekly at the Windsor Castle pub in Lye, near Stourbridge.
The 24-year-old takes to his stool at 7pm every Sunday with his acoustic guitar and kazoo to play a free three-hour acoustic set.
Jon is the king of the random medley. He says: "I just make it up. What I play depends on who's in the audience and what I feel like. I don't have a plan."
So prepare yourself for a brief history of pop, rock, dance and metal music in just three hours.
Jon jumps from Rage Against the Machine to Take That to Fleetwood Mac. With guitar playing this frantic, he should get through more strings in one evening than the London Philharmonic Orchestra. But he doesn't break a single one.
The set closer is a brilliantly executed version of the Cheers theme tune - and then popular demand means that the set will last at least another 20 minutes.
The Windsor Castle is at 7 Stourbridge Road, Lye, Stourbridge.
