Jon Bon Jovi, Demi Lovato, Justin Timberlake will headline a TV special for the Biden-Harris inauguration on January 20th, hosted by Tom Hanks. Bruce Springsteen may join in.
It would be great if Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band could play the Lincoln Memorial, just as Bruce did in January 2009 for Barack Obama. That concert, called “We Are One,” featured Bruce, and dozens more artists live outside for huge crowds. Additionally, Sting and Stevie Wonder performed on ABC while the Obama’s took their first dance.
This 90-minute program, called “Celebrating America,” will also feature remarks from the President-elect and the Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and will celebrate “American heroes” like front line workers, teachers and health care workers, among others.
“Our first priority is safety — so while many of us will be watching safely from our homes, we are creating real moments of connection that highlight a new inclusive American era of leadership that works for and represents all Americans,” said an organizer.
