Bruce Springsteen welcomed an surprising visitor to the stage throughout his present in Barcelona, Spain on Friday evening: former first girl Michelle Obama sat in with Springsteen and the E Road Band as they carried out “Glory Days.”
Obama sang and performed a tambourine to the Born in the united statesA. traditional, alongside Springsteen’s spouse and E Road Band member, Patti Scialfa, and actress Kate Capshaw.
The evening previous to the live performance, Springsteen, Scialfa, Capshaw, and Capshaw’s husband, director Steven Spielberg, dined with the Obamas at a restaurant in Barcelona.
Springsteen and Obamas’ relationship extends again to 2008, when Barack Obama first ran for president. Springsteen performed a number of of Obama’s early marketing campaign rallies and inauguration, and hit the street for him once more throughout his 2012 reelection marketing campaign. He even wrote Obama’s campaign theme song. Later, close to the tip of his presidency, President Obama awarded Springsteen with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
In 2021, Springsteen and Obama teamed up for a restricted podcast collection known as Renegades: Born in the USA.
