Bruce Springsteen performs for Obama after rejecting Trump

It was elegiac, I'd say.

The singer and his band played 15 songs including "Thunder Road", "The Promised Land" and "My Father's House", according to an account contributed to Backstreets by an individual who attended the special show.

Springsteen's wife and E Street Band member Patti Scialfa also joined her husband for a couple songs, "Tougher Than the Rest" and "If I Should Fall Behind", the first of which was dedicated to the President and the First Lady. It was an unassuming, calm signal from Bruce to express profound gratitude to President Obama, the staff, and their families. No pomp, no ceremony, no press.

Springsteen has made several appearances at the White House during Obama's two terms in office, including for his acceptance of the Presidential Medal of Freedom two months ago.

Unfortunately, last week's performance may very well be his last White House attendance for a while.

Last Thursday, as a Bruce Springsteen tribute band was vilified for its plan to play an inaugural ball ostensibly (but not really) tied to Donald Trump in Washington, the real Boss was already there - playing a secret farewell show for President Barack Obama and staffers.

One can imagine, considering Springsteen's public dismay for president-elect Trump.

Though Trump's transition team were able to book Toby Keith and 3 Doors Down to perform at the inauguration, just as many artists seem to be canceling on the soon-to-be president. "The B Street Band would not exist without the talents of Bruce and our E Street brothers".
