WASHINGTON, DC — Rock legends and New Jersey Hall of Fame inductees Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi represented their home state at Inauguration Day festivities for President Joe Biden. 

The Boss kicked off the January 20 concert with an acoustic version of "Land of Hope and Dreams," while Bon Jovi and the Kings of Suburbia performed a cover of the Beatles' "Here Comes The Sun." (See video links below.)

Bon Jovi also performed at Biden events during the 2020 campaign. It wasn't the Jersey rocker's first inauguration appearance. In 2012, he performed a stirring rendition of "A Change Gonna Come" with Bettye LaVette.
