Come On Up For The Rising...

Bruce Springsteen opened the Obama Inaugural Concert at the historical Lincoln Memorial on a very cold and chilly Sunday afternoon, in front of 500,000 people. He played a moving version of The Rising, backed up by a huge gospel choir. Hands down, this is the best version I've ever heard him do. He also closed the show with Pete Seeger (who's 90!) with Woody Guthrie's This Land Is Your Land.

P.S. In case you didn't know, The Rising is the official Obama campaign song.
