Two of the biggest stars in popular music will team up for a big 11th hour rally for President Obama. Brent Colburn, the National Communications Director for the President’s campaign team Obama for America, tweeted that Bruce Springsteen and Jay-Z will support the President’s re-election campaign in Columbus, Ohio on Monday.

@barackobama’s last day on the trail? The Boss in WI, OH & IA; Jay-Z in Columbus; Ending with @michelleobama in IA, where it all began

After the Columbus rally, according to the tweet, Springsteen will play again at the president’s final campaign event, in Des Moines, Iowa. No word on whether Jay-Z will perform or just appear and speak to the audience. Springsteen generally performs solo acoustic sets at campaign events, but it’s possible that Springsteen and Jay-Z could team up for a song, as Jay-Z did with Springsteen disciples Pearl Jam back in September at his Made in America festival.

Springsteen, who campaigned heavily for Obama in 2008, has made a few campaign appearances for the President on his current campaign. Jay-Z, meanwhile, shot a promotional video for the Obama campaign, and with Beyonce, hosted a fundraiser that reportedly raised $4 million dollars for the campaign.
