BRUCE, SOME OTHER GUY TO PLAY FOR DEMS

Report outta Denver today says Shore-based popstars Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi will play at the Democratic National Convention Thursday, bookending Sen. Barack Obama‘s nomination acceptance speech at the 80,000-seat Invesco Field.

The Rocky Mountain News says

Multiple sources confirmed to the Rocky that Jon Bon Jovi will fly in to perform two acoustic songs before Sen. Barack Obama gives his acceptance speech at Invesco Field on Thursday night. After the speech, Bruce Springsteen will close out the night, presumably solo acoustic (E Street Band member Nils Lofgren told the Rocky last week that the band wouldn’t be with Springsteen in Denver).

Springsteen’s people have not returned multiple requests for comment.
