Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi play Philadelphia Hillary Clinton rally

Hillary Clinton got some high-powered last-minute support for her rally on the eve of Election Day, thanks to performances by Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi. 

The New Jersey music icons took the stage in Philadelphia for a rally and concert in front of Independence Mall on Monday night to show their support for the Democratic nominee for president.

Springsteen made his allegiances very clear, telling supporters they would remember Tuesday as the day “we stood with Hillary Clinton on the right side of history and a dream of a better America,” he said from the stage. 

“The choice tomorrow couldn’t be any clearer,” Springsteen said. “Hillary’s candidacy is based on intelligence, experience, preparation and an actual vision of America where everyone counts.”

“Hillary sees an America where the issue of income distribution should be at the forefront of our national conversation. She sees an America where an issue of immigration reform is dealt with realistically and compassionately.”

Springsteen performed a brief solo acoustic set that included “Thunder Road,” “Long Walk Home” and “Dancing in the Dark.”

Bon Jovi performed a four-song set including “Who Says You Can’t Go Home,” “Someday I’ll Be Saturday Night,” “Livin’ on a Prayer” and the Beatles’ “Here Comes the Sun,” backed by a three-piece band.

“Think of Mrs. C. when you hear this one,” he said of the Beatles cover.

Bill Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, Barack Obama and Michelle Obama also made appearances as the rally.
