NVESCO FIELD The Jersey boys are coming, and we ain't talking about Frankie Valli. The Boss and Bon Jovi are ready to perform.
Multiple sources confirmed to the Rocky that Jon Bon Jovi will fly in to perform two acoustic songs before Sen. Barack Obama gives his acceptance speech at Invesco Field on Thursday night. After the speech, Bruce Springsteen will close out the night, presumably solo acoustic (E Street Band member Nils Lofgren told the Rocky last week that the band wouldn't be with Springsteen in Denver).
Springsteen's people have not returned multiple requests for comment.

Seriously, however, it’s interesting that Common is apparently not among the headliners - for a number of reasons.
Great. Why do Hollywood Liberals like Marxism.
Both acts are worth close to $100MM or more and “feel” for the working class as their lifestyles are protected in corporations, trusts, offshore accounts, etc. and the impact of raised income, SS and capital gains taxes are insignificant to them...yet they rail for you, the middle class, to pay for the nonworking.
Bruce is old and tired; Bon Jovi is a washed-up faux metal loser.

Is John Rich going to perform Raising McCain at the GOP convention?
Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi got John Kerry elected, too...
# When Obama squints dreamily into the distance, he can see next week’s lottery winning numbers. But he never plays because that would mean poverty of ambition.
# Obama can calculate your guilt just by looking at the numbers in your checkbook.
# A microphone into which Obama has spoken, heals asbestos-related disorders and colorectal cancer by direct application.
# Every time Obama talks about change, a baby diaper becomes clean and a homeless person’s cup fills up with nickels.
# Every time Obama talks about “hope,” coma patients regain consciousness and chant “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”
# Obama’s famous stare once converted 15 Islamic fundamentalists into secular progressives, all of whom are currently employed by Countrywide Home Loans.
# Obama is 50% typical White person.
Obama’s real mother was young John Kerry who reproduces asexually when coming into contact with foreign Marxists.
# Obama often says “uh” in his speeches in order to irritate Bill O’Rilley who hangs onto his every word.
Obama always overpays his taxes because he believes that the government will find a better use for his money than he ever could.
When Obama rids the world of nuclear weapons, the red button in his office will control the thermostats in American homes.
“Why do Hollywood Liberals like Marxism”.
Because most of them have little more than a high school education, and have never read or contemplated Marx. Most of them (like many college kids-such as the filthy hippie “wannabes” protesting this week)Have no understanding what Marxism does to a country or the people subjected to it.
Most Hollywood Liberals have no idea what the US Constitution is or what it says. They have no idea as to the meaning of the Xth Amendment-they want the federal government to install an nanny state.
Bottom line is-because they can act or sing does not mean that they are very intelligent.
Will Bon Jovi be dedicating “You Give Plugs A Bad Name” to Joe Biden??
Ugh! I had no idea. I had liked that song he sang with Jennifer Nettles. Now his music doesn’t exist to me.
OK, factor in that selection and that Grandmom was a "typical white person", you have to ask, "Why wasn't "Average White Band" invited?
Gosh, and here I thought the One would be able to get musical acts who weren’t 20-30 years past their prime.
I know, I lived in NYC and Los Angeles for 5 years apiece.
Madonna is not a scholar, nor is Sean Penn.
If the Boss sings Jungleland for Obama would that be racist?
Who said Obama’s camp is ignoring the birth certificate issue; they’re going straight to the horse’s mouth.
You said it. Remember that full page advertisement in the New York Times shortly after the 2000 election, signed by Rosie O'Donnell, Bianca Jagger, Paul Newman, and a bunch of other know-it-alls? They said Al Gore won a "a clear constitutional majority of the popular vote...", whatever that is.
I think they also called for new elections in Palm Beach County, undoubtedly because the Constitution allows for this when you are not satisfied with the outcome.
The media won’t be able to blackout coverage of the concert that precedes this Obama appearance.
The Secret Service requested Bon Jovi not sing anything about “shot through the heart” or “wanted dead or alive.”
I can’t believe Barack didn’t ask Ludacris, an artist he calls a friend and whose work he expressed admiration for in the past.
And Ludacris has got that hot new rap he did just for the campaign.
Why two aging white rockers?
Will Bruuuuce seranade Obambi with “Born in the USA”?
The Obama campaign has probably promised the Hip Hop Caucus inclusion at the innauguration. Keep them in the closet until after the election...
Yeah, but Chuck Norris could still kick his butt.
and by watching these YouTube interviews with the books author:

But they probably are not interested. Politicians' lies may dupe us, but it's the lies we tell ourselves that we truly regret.
More entertainers for the celebrity candidate here:
Can Obama actually pull any crowd at all without promising two rock bands and free food and drink?
“These are just the names getting plugged in this article.
More entertainers for the celebrity candidate here:”
But it’s Springsteen and Bon Jovi performing at at the stadium before and after Obama’s acceptance speech. They definitely got the big audience. Most other venues might not be televised, or might draw very small audiences.
“Multiple sources confirmed to the Rocky that Jon Bon Jovi will fly in to perform two acoustic songs before Sen. Barack Obama gives his acceptance speech... After the speech, Bruce Springsteen will close out the night...”
Definitely the biggest audience by far.
You've just unlocked the key to Obama popularity; Rock concerts before speeches. He has drawns the biggest crowds in Seattle and Germany by having popular band play before he teleprompters. His tther events since May barely gets full capacity. He got Bruce Springstein and Bon jovi to appear before him because theres no hell he was going to sell out Invesco Field. It would be funny to stage a camera outside the stadium after they finish playing to see how many people leave before BO's speech.
‘Ol bon jovi is “halfway there” to socialism.
I forgot, then he will be “living on a prayer”
