Bruce Springsteen helped celebrate Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ Inauguration Day celebration tonight (January 20) with a performance of “Land of Hope and Dreams.” Springsteen opened the evening’s Celebrate America event, which is hosted by Tom Hanks. Watch Springsteen play the song solo on acoustic guitar below.

Springsteen has been part of the Biden campaign since the 2020 Democratic National Convention, when he appeared in campaign promos that were soundtracked by songs from The Rising. He also narrated one of Biden’s campaign ads just prior to Election Day. Springsteen previously performed an Inauguration Day event for Barack Obama and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Obama in 2016.

Last year, Springsteen and the E Street Band released Letter to You, which was named one of Pitchfork’s “35 Best Rock Albums of 2020.” Read Pitchfork’s Sunday Review of Nebraska.
