Sorry, Conventioneers: No Bruce For You
There's been plenty of speculation (wishful thinking?) in recent days that Barack Obama supporter Bruce Springsteen is going to perform either just before or after Obama's speech in Denver on Thursday.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Sunday that it was a done deal: "Bruce Springsteen will follow Obama with a solo acoustic performance on Thursday after Obama's acceptance speech at Invesco Field." The Telegraph reported same yesterday, as did the Rocky Mountain News, which said that Jon Bon Jovi will open for Obama with Springsteen closing out the night.
But a source in Springsteen's camp tells The Washington Post that The Boss won't be anywhere near Invesco Field on Thursday.
"He's definitely not performing nor attending and has never planned to do so," says the source, who is privy to Springsteen's schedule.
