As expected, Bruce Springsteen has signed on to perform at the Celebrating America Presidential gala event set for Wednesday night (January 20th). The New York Times reported the special will cap the celebrations for the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden, with the Presidential Inaugural Committee adding that actors Eva Longoria and Kerry Washington “will also have roles to play in the program.”
In addition to remarks by President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, Tom Hanks will serve as the show's host with performances by Jon Bon Jovi, John Legend, Justin Timberlake, and Demi Lovato, among others.
The prime-time special will be carried live starting at 8:30 p.m. ET on ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, and CNN, along with Amazon Prime.
