Here’s a reason to wake up early on July 30th.

Springsteen to Play Boardwalk Gig
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will perform live from the boardwalk on July 30 for NBC’s “Today” show, his publicist confirmed.
Springsteen will perform several songs from “The Rising,” his first studio album with the E Street Band since 1984, set for release that day.
“Today” will broadcast in its entirety from the boardwalk in Asbury Park, highlighted by Springsteen’s “Today Summer Concert Series” performance from the adjacent Convention Hall, his publicist said Wednesday.
Katie Couric and Matt Lauer will co-host the broadcast from the beach and take a tour of Springsteen’s adopted “hometown.”
