SPRINGSTEEN TO PERFORM FOR INAUGURAL SPECIAL
As the New York Times reports, Bruce Springsteen has been added to the list of performers to celebrate the January 20 Inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in a prime-time special that night. We don't anticipate a Lincoln Memorial appearence with full choir, but then these are different times.

Celebrating America will air on Wednesday, January 20, at 8:30pm ET. Tom Hanks will host, with additional performances by Demi Lovato, Justin Timberlake, Jon Bon Jovi, Foo Fighters, John Legend, and more "to celebrate the beginning of a new national journey toward an America united. The program will showcase the American people’s resilience, heroism, and unified commitment to coming together as a nation to heal and rebuild."

Springsteen and the other artists will "will perform from iconic locations across the country"; Biden and Harris will also make remarks.

The 90-minute program will be carried on multiple networks including ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, PBS, and MSNBC, and streamed live on YouTube and Facebook as well. Visit bideninaugural.com for further details.

Bruce's barn?

I wonder if I should hang out at southern tracks or somewhere... there was some twit chatter about a filming thing being set up at the MLK centre here in Hotlanta even after today’s MLK celebrations... probably not Bruce though

Bruce’s previous appearances on the mall, about one every 4 years like a sort of halleys comet


2009-01-17 - LINCOLN MEMORIAL, WASHINGTON, DC

THE RISING (with The Joyce Garrett Singers) / THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND (with Pete Seeger, Tao Rodriguez-Seeger, and the Inaugural Celebration Chorus)

Rehearsal for the Obama Inaugural Celebration "We Are One" concert. Although the event's house band had prepared an arrangement of "The Rising", Bruce was moved enough by an initial rehearsal with just him and the gospel choir that the band arrangement was not even attempted.


2009-01-18 - LINCOLN MEMORIAL, WASHINGTON, DC

THE RISING (with The Joyce Garrett Singers) / THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND (with Pete Seeger, Tao Rodriguez-Seeger, and the Inaugural Celebration Chorus)

Obama Inaugural Celebration "We Are One" concert. Bruce is backed by a large gospel choir (The Joyce Garrett Singers) on "The Rising". Pete Seeger, Tao Rodriguez-Seeger and a children's choir perform on "This Land Is Your Land".

 

2014-11-11 - NATIONAL MALL, WASHINGTON, DC

Soundcheck: FORTUNATE SON (with Dave Grohl and the Zac Brown Band) / THE PROMISED LAND / BORN IN THE U.S.A. / DANCING IN THE DARK

With Dave Grohl and the Zac Brown Band: FORTUNATE SON

Solo acoustic: THE PROMISED LAND / BORN IN THE U.S.A. / DANCING IN THE DARK

Bruce performs at The Concert For Valor, saluting America's veterans on Veterans Day. Before a crowd approaching one million on Washington's National Mall, Bruce joins Dave Grohl and the Zac Brown Band for "Fortunate Son", followed by a three-song solo acoustic set that includes "Born In The U.S.A.". The free three-hour concert is broadcast live on HBO and streamed over the internet. Other artists performing include Rihanna, Metallica, and Eminem.


2017-01-12 - WHITE HOUSE, WASHINGTON, DC

WORKING ON THE HIGHWAY / GROWIN' UP / MY HOMETOWN / MY FATHER'S HOUSE / THE WISH / THUNDER ROAD / THE PROMISED LAND / BORN IN THE U.S.A. / DEVILS & DUST / TOUGHER THAN THE REST (with Patti Scialfa) / IF I SHOULD FALL BEHIND (with Patti Scialfa) / THE GHOST OF TOM JOAD / LONG WALK HOME / DANCING IN THE DARK / LAND OF HOPE AND DREAMS

According to reports, Bruce stages a secret acoustic gig of fifteen songs in the White House's East Room to reward Barack Obama's staff for their hard work during the past eight years. Patti joins Bruce for "Tougher Than The Rest" and "If I Should Fall Behind". The set also includes a rare performance of "My Father's House", last played October 6, 2005 in Rochester, NY.

"It was a dream of a setlist … Bruce opened with a very brief note of thanks to the president and the staff who were being honoured before launching into "Working On The Highway". That opener led into an incredible "Growin' Up" for a lively start, but not much of the set was so upbeat, with haunting readings of songs like "My Hometown", "My Father's House", and "Devils & Dust". The mood in the room the whole night – both reception and concert – was not exactly sombre, but it wasn't festive, either. It was elegiac, I'd say. There was a clear sense of something ending, both with the conclusion of an adventure for the staff and the silent presence of the coming political transition. Bruce's demeanor was definitely in line with that overall vibe."
