For the second time in a few days Bruce was part of another benefit show for war veterans. «The Concert for Valor», held last Tuesday at the National Mall in Washington, featured a long list of musical stars, including Eminem, The Black Keys, Metallica and Rihanna.
Bruce first came onstage to perform with The Zac Brown Band, with Dave Grohl, for a vibrant version of CCR’s «Fortunate Son» [video].
Springsteen’s own performance included acoustic versions of «The Promised Land», «Born in the U.S.A.» and «Dancing in the Dark». The full show was broadcast live by HBO.
«I’m gonna send this out as a prayer for all of our recently returned vets, who deserve the best care this country can give them… we haven’t gotten there yet. This is for you guys.» (Bruce Springsteen)
