Going above and beyond his participation in the Vote for Change tour, Bruce Springsteen will join Democratic U.S. presidential candidate John Kerry at a handful of upcoming rallies. The Boss is expected to speak and perform at stops in Wisconsin and Ohio, the latter being one of the swing states in which he and his E Street Band shared a concert bill earlier this month with R.E.M., John Fogerty and Bright Eyes.

The first appearance will be Thursday (Oct. 28) on the Ohio State University campus in Columbus, and the State Capitol Square in Madison, Wis. The latter event is also slated to include a performance by the Foo Fighters, according to Kerry's official Web site. Both events require tickets, which are available through the site.

Springsteen will also be on hand for an election eve rally Nov. 1 in Cleveland. Further details about the appearances will be announced in the coming days.
