inauguration day

Watch Bruce Springsteen Sing ‘Land of Hope and Dreams’ to Kick Off Celebrating America

Today marked a new day in America, and also a new Bruce Springsteen performance. The Boss kicked off the primetime inauguration TV special Celebrating America (hosted by America’s dad, Tom Hanks) with a very special, intimate performance of his song “Land of Hope and Dreams.” Springsteen, wearing jeans and a peacoat, performed the song on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial without his beloved E Street Band, accompanied instead by his acoustic guitar and a teleprompter. There was also no audience in sight as Bruce sang the ballad looking out at the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool lined with 400 lights to honor the 400,000 Americans who have died of COVID. Check out the Boss ushering in a brighter tomorrow with his acoustic performance of “Land of Hope and Dreams.”
