Springsteen campaigned for Obama in 2008, and performed “The Rising” with the Joyce Garrett Singers, a gospel choir, at his Inaugural Address in 2009. He returned to Washington DC to play a private show for Obama and the White House staff as they prepared to depart and make way for the Donald Trump administration. During the Obama years, Springsteen received both the Kennedy Center Honors and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
After touring Europe this summer, the E Street Band will heading back stateside in August for a stadium run, followed by a string of arena dates in the fall. It wraps up on Dec. 8 at the Chase Center in San Francisco, California.
