The commander- in-chief is getting some help from The Boss in Virginia.
Bruce Springsteen will appear in Charlottesville Tuesday afternoon on behalf of President Barack Obama’s campaign. The event will take place at nTelos Wireless Pavilion, the same venue where Obama himself headlined an Aug. 29 rally. Doors will open at 2 p.m. The rally also will include local elected officials and campaign volunteers, according to Obama’s campaign.
The event is free and open to the public, but tickets are required. They will be available on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at 1 p.m. Sunday at the Obama campaign’s Charlottesville office at 407 E. Main St., and its University of Virginia campus office at 1325 West Main Street A.
Springsteen and his E Street Band already were scheduled to be in Charlottesville on Tuesday for a concert at the John Paul Jones Arena at UVa. But The Boss has been hitting the campaign trail for Obama, as well. Springsteen made appearances for the president’s re-election earlier this week in Ohio and Iowa.
Obama will return to Virginia on Thursday, stopping in Richmond during a two-day blitz of key battleground states.
