Springsteen, Bon Jovi to Join Obama Thursday?

From ABC News’ Rick Klein, author of The Note: It’s his life, and he’s born to run. And it doesn’t get much bigger than this.

The Rocky Mountain News is the latest to report confirmation of a rampant rumor in Denver: That Bruce Springsteen is planning a brief acoustic set Thursday night from Invesco Field, from the same stage that Sen. Barack Obama will receive the nomination.

That would make it a big Jersey night: Jon Bon Jovi is also slated to perform that night.

Surely "The Rising" needs to be on Springsteen’s play list — it gets played at just about every Obama campaign event these days. A fellow Bruce fan suggests adding "Long Walk Home" and "The Promised Land." Maybe "Land of Hope and Dreams"?

As for Bon Jovi — let’s guess that "Livin’ On a Prayer" isn’t the right note to hit.

Thoughts? Do rock stars matter? Of course, there are rock stars, and then there’s The Boss. . . .
