President Obama speaks to crowd of 18,000 in Madison

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Bruce Springsteen plays four songs, does an impersonation of President Barack Obama and introduces the president before a crowd of 18,000 in Madison.

Springsteen took the stage around 10:30 a.m. Monday and joked about how early it was to be playing music, "particularly if you don't have a voice."

Springsteen played acoustic guitar and harmonica and opened with "No Surrender" followed by "The Promised Land." His third song had the refrain "Four More Years" and included the line ""So I came to Wisconsin looking for a date, we kissed and I said it was a hell of a  state."

Springsteen closed with "Land of Hope and Dreams."

Springsteen and Obama were both also slated to appear in Columbus, Ohio, and Des Moines, Iowa, later Monday.
