Better late than never: Bruce Springsteen to appear at Clinton rally

Bruce Springsteen will make an appearance at a Hillary Clinton rally in Philadelphia, Monday.


Bruce Springsteen will make an appearance at a Hillary Clinton rally in Philadelphia, Monday.

Bruce Springsteen has made it clear that he supports Hillary Clinton and not Donald Trump in the upcoming presidential election. But he will appear at a Clinton event for the first time Monday, at Independence Mall in Philadelphia, just a day before the nation chooses its next leader.

It’s an all-out rally, with President Obama and Michelle Obama, as well as Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton, also scheduled to appear.

Another one of New Jersey’s staunchly Democratic rock stars, Jon Bon Jovi, will also perform.

(NOTE: You can watch a live stream of the event, below, though it’s just video. You can watch and hear it live on C-SPAN television, though. And you can watch Bon Jovi’s performance, during which he covered the Beatles’ “Here Comes the Sun” and also performed his signature song “Livin’ on a Prayer,” at

While New Jersey is considered a lock for Clinton, Pennsylvania is still among the states that could go either way, most experts agree.

Though Springsteen was reluctant to appear at political rallies early in his career, he has appeared at campaign events supporting John Kerry, in 2004, and Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012.

According to a message posted on

At a rally the night before Election Day, Hillary Clinton will campaign in Philadelphia, joined by President Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, President Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton, on Independence Mall on Monday, November 7. The Clintons and Obamas will also be joined at the event by Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi, who will perform.

With Independence Hall as the backdrop, Clinton will urge Pennsylvanians to make history on Tuesday by electing her president so she can continue pushing for the American ideals of progress, inclusion, equality and strength that our founders enshrined in our Constitution there in 1787.

Doors open at 4:00 pm. Event Entrance at Corner of 4th St. and Chestnut St.
