On the day before the election, Barack Obama will find himself campaigning with the closest thing this country has to royalty. The respective kings of Brooklyn and Asbury Park, aka Jay-Z and Bruce Springsteen, will join forces for the first time in the hope of securing the President a second term.
As Rolling Stone reports, both musicians will appear alongside the President at a rally in Columbus, OH on Monday the 5th. That same day, Springsteen will also appear in Des Moines, Iowa with First Lady Michelle Obama.
It’s not the first time Obama has called on some big name musician to support his re-election. The National opened for the POTUS back in September, while Bruce himself recently debuted a new rally song at Obama’s request. No telling what he and Jay will have cooked up for the final show (maybe Jay dropping the rap verse on “Rocky Ground”?), but we’ll be sure to post whatever it is.
In addition to Jay and Bruce, Katy Perry will make a stop with Obama in Milwaukee on Saturday, the same day he and his First Lady join Dave Matthews Band on stage in Bristow, Virgina. If the campaign trail hasn’t already tired our POTUS out, he’ll certainly deserve a rest after these last few days.
