Springsteen rocks Obama rally in Philly

PHILADELPHIA, PA The New Jersey rocker interrupted a seven-song acoustic set at a voter-registration rally in Philadelphia today to praise Barack Obama and bemoan the crises facing the next president. Springsteen said America remains a house of dreams for some, but that too many people have given up on the promise of fairness and equality.

The rally, planned by the Obama campaign a week ago, drew tens of thousands of people to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and came just days before Monday's voter registration deadline in Pennsylvania. /p>

"The Boss" also plans to perform at Obama gatherings in Ohio tomorrow and Michigan on Monday. On October 16th, he will join Billy Joel at an Obama fundraiser in New York City.
