A report from the Las Vegas Review Journal had left rumors swirling that a Bruce Springsteen concert would be following Senator Obama’s acceptance speech on Thursday evening. Leaving Republicans already critical of his ‘celebrity’ eager for the opportunity to accuse Obama of being out of touch with the average American. Unfortunately, for those thousands who will be lining up to make their way to Invesco Field thursday night the Washington Post is now reporting that the Boss won’t be performing.
While Senator Obama had received a number of celebrity endorsements from stars such a Oprah Winfrey early in his campaign, it appears that in Denver he is making an effort to downplay ties to Hollywood. Perhaps as a response to the series of McCain campaign spots accusing him of being the, “biggest celebrity in the world.”
