Bruce Springsteen kicked off his Australian tour with the declaration that he is joining the “new American resistance” at a show in Perth Saturday (Jan. 22).
“We’re a long way from home,” Springsteen told the crowd after performing “Lonesome Day” from his album, The Rising. “Our hearts and spirits are with the hundreds of thousands of women and men that marched yesterday in every city of America. And in Melbourne.”
Springsteen is on a month-long tour of Australia and New Zealand, but his wife and fellow E Street Band member Patti Scialfa, stayed stateside to join the Women's March held in Asbury Park, New Jersey, according to the Asbury Park Press.
