Springsteen Songs Slip into Obama’s Play List Post Endorsement

Apr 17, 2008 7:15pm

ABC News’ Sunlen Miller Reports: When Senator Obama took the stage a rally in Greenville, North Carolina gone were the words of "City of Blinding Lights," the U2 song that the candidate has regularly taken the stage to since the early days leading up to the Iowa caucus.

Today, however U2′s familiar tunes were replaced with Bruce Springsteen’s "The Rising."

Senator Obama picked up the endorsement of the boss himself on Wednesday.

Is this a preview of Springsteen making an appearance with Obama anytime soon?

The Obama campaign says they’d love to have Springsteen out on the campaign trail but have not made any formal arrangements for joint appearances….yet.

The popular hit "The Rising," is also a staple at former President Clinton’s events as he campaigns for his wife.

Bruce Springsteen hits Raleigh, North Carolina just days before the state’s crucial May 6th primary – for a concert on April 27th. Senator Clinton has agreed to a debate for the same night – and same city – that Senator Obama has not yet confirmed he will attend.
